Debbie Richardson, Saddle Fitting Consultant in The East Midlands & Lincolnshire.
I have been a qualified Master Saddler and Qualified Saddle Fitter to The Society of Master Saddlers' for thirty years, spending my working week saddle fitting for both regular and new customers around Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Lincolnshire and Leicestershire. The Society of Master Saddlers' Qualified Saddle Fitters are dedicated, highly qualified equine professionals and our sole aim is to provide a personal and professional saddle fitting service which will ensure outstanding comfort and performance for both the horse and rider as a combination in whatever discipline they are working in.
I carry in stock a vast range of over 150 horse saddles for all disciplines from the happy hacker right though to the specialist competition horses, including the following brands and makers names...
Adam Ellis, Albion, Anky, Barnsby, Black Country, Bliss of London, Bates, Cavaletti, D.A. Saddles, English Riding Saddle Co, Equisport (Paul Jones), Fairfax, Farrington, Fieldhouse, Genesis, G.F.S., Harry Dabbs, Ideal, Jeffries, Jaguar, John Whitaker, Kent and Masters, Mark Todd, Morris and Nolan, Monarch, Passier, Pessoa, P.D.S.dressage, Saferide, Silhouette, Star Saddles, Walsall Riding Saddles (Exselle saddles Thorowgood, Wow and Wintec.
I also fit and adjust the "Flair Ride on Air System" which most saddles can be adapted to and am happy to assess and refit your existing Flair saddle.
I also stock one of the largest ranges of pony saddles you will find, as well as a small range of good quality second hand saddles. If the saddle you desire is not on my above list, that is not a problem, I will always try my very best to meet your requirements.
As well as a fantastic choice of saddles, I also offer a carefully selected range of accessories that will fit any saddle and bridles supplied by the makers' names. I also arrange Fairfax Bridle clinics as and when requested.
Once I have fitted your horse with the perfect saddle, I offer a full aftercare service as often as you need it to ensure the correct fit is maintained for you and your horse. All adjustment work on the saddles is undertaken by myself and can be mainly done on the same day without the saddle being sent away.
I also undertake all kinds of remedial work, working alongside your vet, blacksmith, instructor or other specialist therapists if necessary. I enjoy fitting difficult or sensitive horses and find they greatly benefit from the experience I have gained over thirty years of saddle fitting.
If you are a regular customer, you know that I am always at the end of my phone for you. If you haven't spoken to me before and need help with an existing saddle or think you need a new one, please do not hesitate to get in touch, even if your saddle was not supplied by me, I will be extremely happy to check, re-balance and care for it, ensuring that you and your horse are as comfortable as possible. I look forward to being able to help with your saddle fitting.
