Saddle Fitting--$150 plus mileage

At the Happy Horse we understand that your saddle is the most important tool between you and your horse.  We also realize that it is a big investment.  A Saddle Fitting appointment with Jen will allow you to demo a series of well fitted saddles based on your budget, fit needs, and preferences.  For more information on Jen, scroll to the bottom of this page. The Happy Horse represents dozens of brands in addition to carrying many used saddles that have been approved for safety and tree integrity.  Our objectives during a saddle fitting include: a back evaluation and tracings, bio-mechanical assessment, a thorough discussion of your saddle options and a long term plan for you.
Please see our Saddle Fitting page for more information or contact Jen directly.
Please note, Jen’s schedule is usually 2-3 weeks out and you must complete the Saddle Fitting Form to get scheduled.
