About our services
A saddle fitting can take around 2 hours (cost is £80). Laura will take your horse's template, check conformation and gait before doing a ridden assessment (please let us know if the normal rider and/ or suitable place to ride will not be available). If possible, she may be able to make the necessary adjustments to your current saddle (these adjustments are chargeable based on materials and labor). She will bring a selection of new and used saddles these range from £450 - £2000+. Mileage is charged at £1 per mile to cover travel time and fuel; this is shared between customers on the day. We always try to group customers together by area to keep travel costs to a minimum.
