A saddle fitting is for customers interested in test riding and potentially purchasing a saddle.
Saddle Fitting cost is $150 plus mileage*.
A fitting will take approximately 2 hours (additional time will be billed at $80 per hour).
Cost includes horse evaluation, tracings, evaluation of one current saddle, (additional saddles will bill at Saddle Consultation rate ) and ridden evaluations of up to 5 saddles.
Horse must be caught, groomed and properly handled at scheduled appointment time.
Please have your fittings laid out (girth, pads, leathers, irons…any other items that we might incorporate into our ridden evaluation). If you do not have fittings let us know so we can bring some for purchase or trial.
Client should be dressed and prepared for riding. If your saddle purchase requires your trainer’s approval, please schedule your appointment so your trainer is present.
While the goal of a saddle fitting is to provide correctly fitted saddles for test riding, occasionally we need to order demos or clients may shop for used saddle recommendations. It is the clients responsibility to pay for shipping, mileage and additional consultation charges, billed at $60 per hour when applicable.
All demo saddles or fitting must be returned to Happy Horse within 7 days.
Cancellations within 48 hours of appointment will bill at full price.
Special rates for larger groups, clubs, lesson programs and non profits. Please email email@example.com for more info.
