A message about COVID-19:
We’re taking precautions to protect ourselves and our clients during the shutdown. Learn more about the changes we’ve made to our business to help ensure the health and safety of everyone.
Travel for saddle fitting appointments has been temporarily suspended until stay-at-home orders and travel restrictions have been lifted. This applies to both boarding facilities and horses kept at home.
When restrictions are lifted, we’ll begin scheduling fitting appointments again on a case-by-case basis, depending on distance and the type of situation horses are kept in. At first, preference will be given for horses kept at home.
We are able to provide long-distance saddle fitting consultations, based on wither tracings and photos of your horse’s back. Please contact us for details and fee information.
Tack & Saddle Repairs
Our workshop is open and accepting repairs, both shipped and dropped off. Now is the best time to send in anything that needs to be fixed. When restrictions are lifted, you’ll want to have all your gear in working order to savor as much riding time as possible.
Not sure if your saddle or tack can be repaired? Unsure of the cost? Send us an email with photos to get a quote! Please visit the Repairs page on our website for shipping information, pricing and other information regarding sending your repair to us.
We are still able to accept saddles for consignment and ship saddles for trial! Not sure if a particular saddle or type of saddle would be suitable for your horse? We are happy to set up a long-distance fitting consultation. Please visit the consignments page on our website to shop our selection of quality used saddles, how to set up a trial and consign a saddle with us.
Per New Jersey’s Stay-at-Home/Non-Essential Business mandate, our physical store is currently closed, but our online tack shop is open and ready for shipping! We carry a large selection of saddle pads, bridles, girths, and other tack from favorite equestrian brands.
We are taking all necessary precautions in our own daily routines to ensure the health and safety of ourselves and our clients. As this situation progresses, we will do our part to be diligent in maintaining our contact with you about our business operation. We wish everyone the best of health and look forward to working with you!
