“The DVD really helped put my mind at ease”
a saddle without actually sitting in it, but the DVD really helped put my mind at ease. I have not bought a saddle for over ten years, so I was a little nervous. But the Kent Saddle is comfortable and very well made it fits my horse and me so well.
I really appreciate the work gone into making the saddle and the effort Kent Saddlery has gone to ensure a correct fit.
For over 15 years my husband and I have had a passion for riding in the High Country. We worked for Jack Lovick on his Mountain Safari’s for about 5 or 6 years and enjoyed every second. We now live adjacent to 400 acres of bush and we take advantage of that as much as we can.
About six years ago we decided to treat ourselves to some young quarter horses and while they were being trained we took a long awaited holiday with our two young children. Unfortunately, upon our return we were informed that both had been injured and subsequently had to be euthanized – 2 weeks apart.
I couldn’t bring myself to ride for some time after that. I have only recently brought Evie, a 3yo quarter horse filly. She is such a quiet gentle horse so when she started bucking I knew something was not right. My saddle didn’t fit her and I needed a new one and with a young horse I couldn’t wait for months and months. Kent Saddlery was my saviour. They were the only saddlers that could guarantee the saddle would fit my horse and they would make sure it did. They didn’t have a six month wait like most of the other saddlers. It is a bit daunting ordering a saddle over the phone, without actually being able to physically see it, but I was assured by Kent Saddlery that I would be more than happy with it.
I didn’t have the time nor the money to muck around so after watching the DVD, reading the testimonials and talking to the boys at Kent Saddlery, I took some measurements and photos and I ordered my Western Drafter Slimline.
It didn’t take long and I received a call that it was ready. I have never had a fender saddle and I loved it from the moment I saw it. It is lightweight and so comfortable – from day one. Most importantly it fits Evie and she is happy.
I know I have made the right choice and will continue to enjoy my riding for many years to come. I cannot recommend Kent Saddlery enough – they make a great Australian made saddle.
