What to check for when you are buying a second-hand saddle

Here at The Saddle Bank we care about YOU. We want the best for you and your horse. Firstly, as already said you get a five-day trial with the saddle you choose so you can test ride the saddle to ensure you are happy with the fit for you and your horse. Secondly, we give you a six-month warranty on all second hands saddles. Therefore, you know that we are backing the products we are selling in that they are sound and fit for purpose. That’s not all! We also offer a guaranteed buy back price within 9 whole months of buying the saddle. We know things change, horses change shape, riders change horses. Therefore, you know in advance the price we will offer to buy the saddle back from you.  It is important to make sure the second-hand saddle you enquire about has a saddle inspection report, this is so you know the saddle has been checked and inspected. At The Saddle Bank we make sure every second-hand saddle has a digital inspection certificate to make sure it is up to the standard we are determined to provide.

How do you buy a second-hand saddle? We make it very easy. All you need is the brand, colour, and seat size you want. You also need to know the saddle width, wither profile and the discipline you want your saddle for. All you need then is to put the measurements in and you will have a wide range of saddles.
If you are unsure on the width of your horse, you can purchase a Flexi Curve, take a template of your horse and send it into our team who will be happy to advise. 

Check out the blog here for how to take a template for your horse to get the correct saddle:
