"Good Morning, Cori,
I just wanted to thank you for providing a valuable resource to beginners like me to trial quality saddles. The information, assistance, and personal service you provided gave me great comfort in knowing that you were honest and trustworthy. I will definitely recommend your store to anyone I know looking for a saddle.
I simply LOVE my new saddle! As a first time horse owner, I was reliant upon others more "knowledgeable" than I when selecting my first saddle. I trailered my horse to a saddle fitter at a consignment shop and she helped to pick out a saddle. I feel like she took advantage of my lack of knowledge and sold me a saddle worth no more than $200 for almost $375. I used it (not knowing what what it "should" feel like or how my horse "should" move in it) for 8 months. I started to look for a new saddle when my 6' tall son started to ride as therapy. I wanted a higher quality saddle, but with 3 teenage boys who are already eating me out of house and home, I couldn't justify paying for a new saddle. I questioned everyone I respected at my barn, researched saddles in my price range, determined what my son and I could both fit into, and searched for a while on the internet for that perfect saddle.
Here in Eastern NC there are very limited places to purchase or try out used saddles. So, when I came across your website and found the perfect saddle, I was thrilled. I have always been terrified to canter my horse in the arena, because she would bolt and just terrify me. Even when I asked her to trot, she was extremely forward and never collected. The very first time I rode her in this new saddle, I was able to trot her at a controlled speed...she was a different horse! I cantered her the second day and she was a dream! I am able to communicate better with my legs because I am using the correct part of my leg to hold on...before I couldn't figure out how to NOT hold on with my thighs and knees. I thought I just needed more time in the saddle. I could list a hundred things that have changed with just a saddle that fits us both. There's so much I didn't know I didn't know.

Thank you for EVERYTHING. I will send anyone I know selling a saddle to you, and I'm sure I will use your services again.
Thank you again."
