Lauren is! and rightfully so, recognised, as being at the very top of the saddle fitting profession!

Her fastidious work ethic and honest approach is fully appreciated by all from first time riders to Elite level professionals and Olympic riders alike.

"Our nationwide saddle fitting consultations are for riders 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.

For this reason, only 'NEW' saddles from our extensive adjustable and custom ranges are considered for fitting consultations!
Far greater results are achieved with new modern saddles and the ongoing fit is more easily maintained by the riders themselves!
Therefore new saddles prove the most reliable option for the horse and the most cost effective, long term solution for the rider!

'USED' saddles may be offered, where in the rare case they provide a better solution than a new saddle."
