Saddle Fitting Service.

We supply saddles personally fitted and altered to your horse as necessary by Karen Ligthelm our Master Saddler and Society of Master Saddlers (U.K) Ltd qualified saddle fitter. Karen has over 30 years experience of saddle fitting.

At Leonard Coombe Master Saddlers we stock 100's of saddles from a selection of manufacturers to suit all budgets and disciplines in a huge range of sizes and styles.

It was not that long ago that many horse owners had little interest in saddle fitting and only when something went wrong would a saddle fitter be called. Today things have changed and horse owners have a greater awareness of how important a well fitting saddle can be to a horses welfare. How a well fitted good quality saddle can improve a horses performance compared to a bad one that at worst can cause a horse a great deal of pain.

 

All horses will change shape, our saddle fitter will try to fit a saddle with as much flexibility as possible to accommodate any potential changes but the saddle fitters first priority will remain the horses welfare and fitting the horse with the best possible fitting saddle  ON THE DAY OF THE FITTING.

A horse may change shape significantly enough that changes can not be accommodated and a new saddle may need to be purchased. 

How often you have your saddle checked depends on many factors including the fitness and condition of the horse. Some horses remain quite consistent whereas others can lose or gain a whole size in a matter of weeks. We will advise on how to monitor your horse's fit and condition so that you will be able to observe any changes that might require your saddle to be adjusted or refitted before problems occur.
