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.
The average appointment takes about 2 hours. This includes a notated history of rider, saddle, and horse, wither tracings, photos, saddle fit evaluation and/or test riding saddles for purchase.
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.
Groups of 2 or more clients per location must be confirmed prior to the appointment time. We are not able to accept “walk-ups” as scheduling for the day is done in advance, and cannot accommodate add-ons.
Cancellations should be made NO LATER than 48 hours before the appointment.
We recommend but don’t require that your trainer be present for additional input when trying new saddles for purchase.
Appointments are available Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. Kate will be available in-store for consultations on Tuesdays and Fridays.
