After Dexter was diagnosed with Kissing Spine, and him having his surgery; it was so important (and stressful) that I found the right saddle along with an understanding saddle fitter that understood that I couldn’t ride when I tried it.
Sally came out to both Dexter and I, and made the whole experience so reassuring. She ensured that the saddle had the clearance for his back and also, arranged regular (almost weekly!) saddle fits at key points on his rehab and bringing him back into work under saddle, which really gave me confidence that the care Dexter was getting for his saddle fit was the most suitable and reassuring. When she’s not out fitting Dexter, she’s checking in weekly to see how the saddle is fitting, with it being new and Dexters progress being a sensitive one! She’s even continued to check in with me during the pandemic (over messenger of course!)
I feel relieved to have found someone who is so genuine and caring, but knowledgable. Our saddle is super comfy, and now i’m back riding- I never want to get out of it!

I’ve known sally for almost a year now, the first time I met her she instantly came across as such a lovely and approachable lady. After a very lengthy conversation about my horse Clyde I could see she had a high level of knowledge and keen interest in Equine Science/biomechanics which of course led to being an amazing saddle fitter! She did not rest untill she found us the perfect saddle for me and Clyde. She spent time watching me ride in each saddle as she believes every horse will tell you if they are happy under saddle and she was right! Although I liked the saddle Clyde definitely chose the correct one for him. Since riding in our new saddle his ridden work has come on leaps and bounds. I could not thank Sally enough and I would definitely recommend her to anyone that is looking for a saddle fitting service.
I contacted Sally as I wasn’t 100% sure my existing saddle was right. My horse went well enough , no rubs or obvious issues but I just felt I needed a second opinion. Sally came to see us, looked at my existing saddle and measured Tom and tried a few options. My horse is a tricky fit , standing at 15.2 , warmblood, deep and barrel like but short coupled he can only take a small saddle. Whilst here Sally also commented on is head carriage and suggested an alternative headpiece as he seemed a bit sensitive around his ears. Three weeks later we are flying, Tom is so much looser through his shoulders , steadier in the hand and altogether smoother to ride in all disciplines. I am no professional but even I can notice the difference. I have had a before and after physio to see him and the improvement is amazing. I can’t recommend Sally highly enough, it just shows even if you don’t have any obvious signs of discomfort it’s certainly worth asking a professional to check it out’
