Clicking "Add to Cart" will secure the first available appointment time at our property at Seagrove Equestrian. We will be in contact to agree a suitable time with you.
This saddle fitting service 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 16 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).
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.
In the event that he is unable to work with your current saddle due to it being unsuitable for your horse, he will suggest options that potentially could work for your horse. Chris can bring alternative options with him, both second hand and new, given prior notice. He is also able to template on the day if you choose to move towards a custom made option.
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.
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 on getting to your location. We look forward to meeting you and your horse!
