Tack & Horsewear Fit Checks, and Tack Security Marking
Jo is an insured and registered Trainee Saddle Fitter with Society of Master Saddlers, and is a registered Saddle Fitter for Walsall based The Saddle Company and Bliss of London but is equally happy to work with other brands as the principles of saddle fitting remain the same. Jo has been trading as an independant saddle fitter for a number of years but recognises the reassurance that SMS accreditation brings, and is therefore currently working towards that.
Jo is able to assess fit on any saddle and can make minor flocking alterations on site to most saddles, and tree adjustments to Saddle Company saddles; other brands may be taken away for alteration or may be altered on site depending on requirements. Jo can also help source second hand saddles of various brands, and can template your horse should you wish to order brand new from The Saddle Company or Bliss of London. Both Bliss of London and The Saddle Company offer differing models ranging from semi-synthetic to top of the range leather so something to suit all pockets and tastes.
It is important that there is somewhere flat and level to stand your horse whilst the templating is carried out, and somewhere flat, level, safe and enclosed to ride if required.
How much does Saddle Fitting cost?
Saddle Fitting: £45 per horse to include templating and minor flocking adjustments.
Alterations: Priced depending upon requirements including additional flocking, tree adjustments, replacement girth straps, repairs, or replacement trees.
