Saddle purchase

My saddle fitter recommended buying a Jeffries Stamford saddle for my hard to fit Halflinger. The two saddles i had that are made for halflingers kept slipping. The saddle from Saddle Bank arrived quickly to Canada and is like new and fits my horse perfectly. It’s so comfortable and wonderful to ride in!! Big Thank you.

Great service, fast shipping

I ordered a saddle from the states and it arrived quickly and in stated condition. Great quality for the price too. I would definitely buy from them again.

Brilliant!

Sold my saddle to the saddle bank and would do so again without question. From start to finish the communication was fast and precise and so too was the sale and sale proceeds. Highly recommend!

Incredible Service

The saddle is even better than it looked in the pictures. Their service was impeccable, fast processing and shipment. If you have to reach out to them for help you have a response almost immediately. Lovely people! Packaging is also very good if you’re shipping internationally. My saddle came from the UK to Canada and customs decided to cut the box completely open and then not bother to reseal it before continuing the shipment. My saddle arrived in an open, mangled box because of customs and UPS and due to the sheer amount of bubble wrap and care taken by the saddle bank, it was miraculously undamaged! Will definitely order again!!

Fantastic service

I am very pleased with my gorgeous new (2nd hand ) saddle. It was exactly as described, if anything better than expected. Delivery was quick and convenient and with the added bonus of getting a 5 day trial, plus confidence the saddle has been checked and is returnable under a warranty - I am a very satisfied customer and would highly recommend.

Look no further!

Sold my saddle to the SB, my goodness if only all transactions in life were that easy! Got a quote within hours of filling out the online form, received a followed up email from customer services with absolutely no pressure to commit to making a decision. The quote is explained well and gave me different selling options. I chose to sell mine direct and within 24 hours of my saddle being collected the money was in my bank! Seriously couldn’t recommend them enough. Why waste time and energy with face book scammers and time wasters! Thank you SB a pleasure to do business with you.

Excellent company i just sold a saddle to them ,it was collected on a Wednesday they received it Thursday ,money paid into my bank account on Friday what more could you ask for much better than trying to sell on E Bay or others , all i needed to do was send them pictures of the saddle along with a few more details and they come back to you with a fair price ,i am well and truly happy it was a pleasure doing business with them

Fantastic service

Really helpful and quick to reply to emails. Sold my saddle easy to arrange collection and payment in back later the next day. Also bought another saddle, again very helpful with advice on fitting a high withered beast! Saddle arrived quickly and well packaged. Would highly recommend

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.
