Saddle Fitting at Seagrove

Secure the first available appointment time at our property at Seagrove Equestrian. We will agree a suitable time with you.

This saddle fitting service costs $175 and covers assessing one horse for 60-75 minutes at our property in Waiau Pa. Please let us know if you need to book in more than one horse. Some saddle work may be able to be completed within this appointment. 

You are very welcome to bring your horse to our facilities for your saddle fitting. Our private arena and on site showroom with our range of new saddles by Albion, Erreplus, Amerigo and GFS for sale, makes it convenient for you to view and try potential new saddles on site.

Yards and stables are available for your horses safety and comfort during the fitting.

Saddle fitter Chris Barnett has over 18 years training and experience and will:

  • Check your existing saddles  
  • Recommend new saddle options if needed, or for a new horse
  • Quote any saddle work required to improve the fit on your horse
  • Aim to re-pack on site where possible (if required). 

Email to make a time for your saddle fitting.

    Saddle repairs, repacking & gullet adjustments

    Chris will try to work with your saddle where possible and will be able to suggest and carry out alterations to improve your saddle fit. Improving the fit of an existing saddle may include repacking, or a full strip out, changes to gullet size, and more. 

    Chris will give an indication of the cost for any saddle work at the time of your saddle fitting. Where possible repacking and saddle repair is done on site immediately. For more complex saddle work, Chris will offer to take your saddle and give you a completion date.

    New saddles for sale

    We sell and fit a wide range of beautiful new saddles by Albion, Erreplus, GFS, Amerigo, Pessoa, Trainers Wintec and Bates.

    If you think your current saddle is unsuitable for your horse or you wish to view new saddles, let us know ahead of time and Chris can bring new saddle options with him, and fit your choice to your horse. He is also able to template on the day if you choose to move towards a custom made option.

    We don’t sell or advise on second hand saddles as there are just too many factors that we can’t control, which can affect the quality of service we aspire to. We focus on the great quality brands we stock which can be expertly fitted to your horse by Chris.

    Your saddle fitting appointment

    We will be in touch by phone or email to organise a good time for your saddle fitting and to request photos of your horse's back so we can bring suitable saddle options to your saddle fitting.

    Please reply with any special requirements and special instructions. By booking our service you agree to our Terms & Conditions. We look forward to meeting you and your horse!
