Saddle Company saddle fitting service.
Lisa can visit you and your horse where she can fit, re-template (adjust tree width), top-up & regulate flocking on site.
Complete re-flocking and some repairs may require saddle to be taken to workshop.
Lisa is a registered BHSAI and takes a very keen interest in the bio-mechanics of both horse and rider. Lisa's main goal is always to ensure the horse happy and comfortable with its work.
After an in depth discussion with the horse owner/rider Lisa will examine the horse's condition and movement, she will then preform a static saddle fitting.
After the saddle is fitted, Lisa will then watch the horse being ridden and make any necessary adjustments to the saddle. This process can take up to 2 hours.
Lisa will knowledgeably guide you through the purchase of a new Saddle Company saddle, or willingly help you adjust the fit of your existing saddle, or fit a used saddle new to you.
Your horse changes shape regularly. The frequency of these changes will relate to his age, training, management, etc. Try to develop an eye to recognize these changes.
Viewed on a daily basis, the changes may seem inconsequential but over a period of just a week or so they can be surprisingly substantial.
