Saddle Trials

While we always try to fit our riders in person, we do understand that this is not always a possibility. The solution? Shipped trials! If you're looking for an in-person saddle fit, please refer to our "Request a Fitting" form. If you're looking for a companion to a saddle trial, check out our Simple Saddle Check guide! As always, we are more than happy to work with you via phone, email, text, or video call; we want you and your horses to be happy, healthy and thriving in a saddle that fits!
