English Saddles – Custom Made

  • All my made-to-measure English Saddles are made on trees that I source from the UK.
  • I only buy the best trees I can find for the “shape & fit” to both horse and rider.
  • I have been making & re-building saddles for over 40 years for customers in Australia / New Zealand.

Why do I need a Saddle fitting?
It is important to have your saddle checked at least once a year as horses change shape for many reasons including:-

  • Coming back into work after a spell
  • Buying a new or used Saddle to be sure it fits correctly
  • Young horses will change & develop their top line with work, so what fitted at first may not fit 6 to 12 months later
  • There are so many different brands of Saddles today and not all will fit your horse…..like buying a pair of shoes for yourself
  • The Rider needs to be seated in the Saddle to correctly see how the Saddle fits
  • To check the Saddle doesn’t have a broken tree
  • To be sure the Saddle has a nice wide channel so as to allow room along the spine

These are just a few Tips, but you really need professional advice on the correct fitting of your Saddle to be sure the Saddle is not hurting your horses’ back.

I can come and fit any brand of Saddle to your horse to be sure of a correct fit.
