Warranties and Guarantees
CommonWealth Saddle Coverage
We understand purchasing a custom saddle is a big investment, which is why custom saddles come with an additional 1 year of CommonWealth Coverage. It assures our riders that we believe in our fitting process and our products. When ordering custom products, the additional coverage is an assurance to our riders that their saddle will fit both horse and rider as discussed upon ordering, subject to the terms of the Guarantee to Fit.
If ever your CommonWealth fitter believes your saddle can be tailored to your horse more appropriately, we have multiple options that can be evaluated and chosen. Our preference is to allow you to break in your new saddle, and do a re-check after the break in period of 2 weeks or 12 hours of riding, to allow the saddle to adjust to your horse. Our saddle fitters will work with you to evaluate the fit of your saddle and make reasonable adjustments to the fit.
If these adjustments aren’t successful, CommonWealth Saddles will assess fit issues and provide the following:
For the first six months from following delivery:
-Exchange the saddle for any demo saddle in stock of equal value.
-Order a new saddle with the corrected measurements of equal value.
For 6 to 12 months from delivery:
-Adjust your saddle by repaneling or adjusting the tree.
-If repaneling is not warranted, pad/shim appropriately during a horse’s development in shape until consistency is reached in their back.
Exclusions, Circumstances and Fine Print:
- When working with youth riders, we will often specify a longer flap to accommodate their growth phase. This is always discussed and agreed upon in advance with all parties involved in the ordering process, especially parents. It may take 1 to 2 years for a rider to grow in to their saddles, especially for riders in the 12-14 years age group.
- Active from 1 year from your original purchase date on invoice.
- By purchasing a custom saddle, the client is effectively agreeing to the Custom Saddle Sale Contract.
- Custom Saddle Sale Contracts must be signed in order to have the additional CommonWealth Coverage.
- As always, health for horses and humans alike is paramount to CommonWealth Saddles – we do not tolerate abuse of any kind towards horses or humans. Any reported abuse, harassment or disrespect towards minority groups, BIPOC, CommonWealth staff, grooms, or other riders will void all contracts and coverage with CommonWealth Saddles and the rider in violation.
- Custom-Built Saddles are designed only for use only on the horse(s) and by the person(s) for which Customer provided measurements to CommonWealth Saddles, and use of any saddle, including a Custom-Built Saddle, on another horse or by another person may alter such saddle’s shape and therefore make it unsuitable for the original intended use(s).
