"it took me four years to try to find a saddle and failed. It took me two months once I found a good saddle fitter. The two months were used to wait for the arrival of the saddle Seriously, a good saddle fitter is worth their weights in gold."
As a Certified Independent Saddle Fitter, owner Amanda Berges is trained to work on all English saddles, and yet does not work for any brand or label so clients' needs are the only priority.
Amanda has carefully selected four saddle makers to work closely with based on their top quality products, outstanding customer service and ability to fit a wide range of horses: Black Country, Frank Baines, E. Jeffries, and Harry Dabbs. Between them there is not a horse we can't fit! Try me. ;)
Perhaps even more important is the full range of saddle fitting services available across Ohio and to surrounding areas. Protect your investment and your horse's back with regular reflocking. Billet repair or replacement, restitching whatever may have come loose and removing knee/thigh blocks are just a few of the repairs that The Saddle Tree can provide, and many can be done on the spot. No need to be without your saddle for even a day!
Not sure what saddle fitters do or why you need one? You are not alone! There has been such a shortage of quality saddle fitting services available in Ohio that many people have just gone without. To help you understand why that is not your best option, The Saddle Tree offers FREE educational presentations to equestrian groups such as 4-H, Pony Club, or your local horse club. These are personalized to the needs of the group and can be held in the barn, a classroom, or your living room. Amanda may bring bare trees and saddles that can actually be taken apart to see what is inside.
The Saddle Tree is ready to meet all your saddlery needs across Ohio. We are able to work with all English saddles including dressage saddles, jump saddles, endurance saddles, close contact saddles, eventing saddles, general purpose saddles, polo saddles, Icelandic saddles and more!
