- For frequently asked questions regarding appointment procedure, please refer to the FAQs page for quick answers.
- The average appointment takes about 2 hours which includes a notated history of rider, saddle and horse, wither tracings, photos, saddle fit evaluation and/or looking at new/used saddles for purchase and riding the horse.
- To maximize the appointment's time, horse(s) should be in the barn and groomed (if necessary) prior to the beginning of the appointment time.
- Horses should be sound and able to be ridden. Riders should be prepared and able to ride the horse for new/used saddle purchases and for flocking adjustments.
- Jumping/Eventing clients must have their trainer present for new saddle purchases.
- Groups of 2 or more people must be confirmed prior to the appointment. We are not able to accept "walk-ups" as the scheduling for the day will not permit the additional time needed to accomodate add-ons.
- Cancellations should be made NO LATER than 48 hours before the appointment.
Appointments are available on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. We do not schedule appointments on Wednesdays, Fridays or Sundays. All available appointment times and locations are listed on our Calendar below.
