I am a 100% independent fitter who does not rep saddles, and I make no commission off of what I may recommend for you and your horse that could affect my recommendations from exactly what you need.
As a result of this, I carry limited consignment saddles and do not represent a brand. This means I work with any brand and type of saddle, and I am not limited to a particular brand or bias.
My favorite saddle? The one that fits you and your horse. Not by brand or style, but by fit.
If you decide to purchase a new saddle, I can refer you to several reputable saddle representatives that do order and sell new custom saddles, depending on the type of saddle you and your horse need. Otherwise, I am happy to assist you in finding a new or used saddle, if you require a different saddle.
My "saddle sourcing" includes utilizing my recommendations for you and your horse (usually after an initial fitting and measurements session) and sourcing saddles based on type, fit, and budget from local tack shops to online venues that I routinely and reliably utilize (Please note, my full transparency in this: absolutely no commission comes to me from these sources).
I will send you a list of saddles and sources for you to order saddles in from, or pick up/contact for trial. If I have a saddle on consignment that may work for you and your horse, I will include it in our recommendations to trial.
My fee for "Saddle Sourcing" is $40/hour, and includes in person and virtual searches, emails and/or contact calls to sellers.
There is a $40 minimum for searching, contacting you, and reviewing saddles for you apart from our fitting. Any time over our initial hour is an additional $40/hour.
This includes reviewing saddles you find either online or in person and want to trial.
Any additional shipping charges for mailing tracings (if scanning and emails are not available), call charges, trial fees, or shipping fees are not included and would be discussed and the responsibility of my client to cover.
Please note, with the limitations on shipping from overseas, there is a lean market for particular saddles at the moment and there may be times where I do not find enough saddles (or any) that would be something I feel comfortable recommending to you. My fee for my time still applies, and when I do find something for you, I will send it to you.
I value your time and your budget, and I will do my best to help you find the saddle(s) you and your horse(s) need!
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions; I am here to help!
