Amazing Service

Ordered from the states on a Sunday and had my new saddle before the following Thursday! Super fast, and it was beautiful accompanied by a sweet note to my horse. Best of all, it was exactly what I ordered and it fits! Great value for money, would definitely buy from here again.

Saddle purchase

Great condition saddle with the ability to choose the gullet for an adjustable. It so helpful being able to trial the saddle before purchase. Mine is perfect so it most certainly wont be going back. Well boxed too with amples of bubble wrap and protection. Thank you to the saddle bank 😊

How the trial works

Saddles are permitted on a 5 day UK mainland trial. Simply add the saddle to your basket and proceed to check out. The trial starts on the day you receive the saddle.
Full payment is taken for the saddle at the point of check out. If the saddle fits – great! No further action required.

Is your fitter not coming until next week? No problem!
Select your delivery date at check out. Please note we recommend having the saddle delivered 2 working days before your saddle fitting appointment in case of any unexpected delays with the courier.

Sadly we are not able to offer a trial internationally at present. However, most of our international clients still find it cheaper to import a quality saddle from UK than to source one in their own country.
