Calcutt and Sons Limited are one of the oldest saddlery businesses in the country, and have built up a reputation for friendly, expert advice.
Does your saddle fit your horse? Saddler Ian Compton will be visiting the island to provide a saddle checking and alterations service. If your horse has changed shape, muscled up or lost weight, then your saddle may not fit as well as it could. Or perhaps you think it fits well, or were assured by the horse’s previous owner that it fits, but would like the reassurance of an expert checking it out.
Bring your horse along to Allendale Equestrian Centre, by kind permission of Lynn Mills BHSAI, to have the fit of your saddle checked by an expert. Once your saddle has been checked, if adjustments are needed then it will be possible to have minor adjustments or repairs made on site*. There is no obligation to have any work done though, it will be entirely up to you.
Cost: only £5 per saddle! Advanced booking is essential.
Time slots will be allocated between 11.30am and 5pm.
* Adjustments/flocking/repairs are not included in the £5 price of the saddle fit check. Minor adjustments are usually in the region of £10-20 but this varies depending on the work – any charges for work are to be agreed between the saddler and client prior to the work being undertaken, and are beyond the control and concern of the BHS.
