HOW DO YOU ENGAGE WITH US? -

Start by contacting us by email or telephone.

When you contact us requiring help we will always ask you to provide basic information -

 

  • Rider Height

  • Horse Height

  • Horse Breeding

  • Horse specifics - Injuries - Out of work - In Work Etc

  • Rider Specifics - What you hope to achieve - Injuries Etc

  • Saddle Discipline

  • The reason you are looking for a saddle!

Essentially we are looking for as much information as possible so our chief advisor can assess your situation.

Once we have this information we will contact you with a list of suitable saddles from our inventory, these saddles maybe new, used or a selection of both.

We will always ask for images or videos - These images must be clear and concise, also current. The images must show -

  • Scale - Add a bucket, a rider or gate to the images.

  • The naked clean horse - No rugs, Numnahs or Saddles.

  • The horse stood on all 4's - Not overly relaxed.

  • Head Up - So we can judge Topline.

  • The horse in full profile - The classic show pose.

  • The Wither/Neck/Shoulder junction.

  • The spine from the rear to the fore.

These are the absolute minimum images we need.

ONCE WE HAVE THESE IMAGES WE WILL BE ABLE TO SAY -
