Saddle Trial Pioneers

Before you start your trial we offer a free saddle consultation, so you can be confident you're testing the best saddle for you and your horse.

Many saddle stores offer a trial, but ours is truly unique.

Unlike traditional saddle shops, where customers have to pay the full cost upfront, with our trial you only pay for the most expensive as a security deposit.

We prioritise fit by streamlining the entire trial experience, eliminating the financial burden and focusing on finding the ideal saddle for you and your horse. Discover a hassle-free way to ensure a perfect fit with our exclusive saddle trial.
