With Lauren Coxhead SMS MSF MSFC


Being a Master Saddle Fitter is about fitting thousands of horses and riders - It's about knowing the in's and out's of all saddles - It's about understanding what the horse needs and then combining years of knowledge to match the horse, the rider and the saddle in harmony!


Lauren Coxhead is by far the highest qualified saddle fitter in Ireland holding not one but two 'Master' qualifications including the much coveted Society of Master Saddlers SMS MSF, a feat only a very few fitters have managed to achieve globally.

Lauren's fastidious and honest approach is fully appreciated by all from first time riders to Elite level professionals and Olympic riders alike.

Our full consultations are for those who wish to benefit from correct saddle fitting results first time and for those who appreciate the need for ongoing saddle fit, maintenance, support and service.

Only 'NEW' saddles from our extensive range are considered for fitting consultations. 'USED' saddles may be offered where they provide a better solution than a new saddle.

All consultations will be conducted by Lauren Coxhead SMS MSF MSFC.


Our service is Nationwide whereby Lauren will come to you no matter where you are in Ireland including N.Ireland.

All full consultations are approximately 2 Hours in duration per horse, as a minimum the following will be undertaken -


  • A detailed history of your horse will be recorded.


  • Rider history in relevance to saddle fitting will be recorded.


  • You will be educated on every step of the consultation process. Lauren aims for you yourself to have a good understanding of saddle fit and the necessary checks.


  • Your horse will receive a specific back examination.


  • Your horse will be evaluated for conformation at walk and trot.​


  • Detailed measurements and templates will be taken of your horse's back for present and for future reference.


  • Saddles will be offered to the horse and rider and will be assessed and adjusted where necessary.


  • There will be a ridden assessment of the relevant options​.


  • Once the best option has been found, you will be able to use the saddle for a given period of days to make sure it is perfect & both you and the horse take to it.


  • You will be advised and given written instructions on how to proceed until your first saddle check.
