How We Work
Our aim is to make buying and selling saddles as hassle free as possible.
We sell only quality branded saddles, new, near new and second hand, saddles to suit all budgets.
Buy with the peace of mind that every saddle has been thoroughly checked and assessed by a qualified saddle fitter. We do our absolute best to give very accurate descriptions of both condition and fit.
When browsing for suitable saddles use the filters to help narrow down your search, selecting the correct gullet width is the best starting point, then check the pictures and descriptions to see if each saddle has the features you want/need. Seat sizes can vary, an open seat may feel roomier than a deep seat and some brands actually measure bigger or smaller than they are stamped, so read the descriptions and measurements for this extra information.
If you are not sure what gullet width your horse needs either talk to your fitter if they have measured your horse recently or if you havn't seen a fitter in the last 6 months you'll need to measure your horse yourself. DO NOT guess what you need and don't just pick a saddle that you like the look of, that would be like walking into a shoe shop and buying a random shoe size just because you like the style! Don't panic about measuring your horse yourself, this is a straight forward process and we have created a video and a printable guide to help you.
Once measured you can send through the details via our form and we can let you know what gullet width you need or if you need further assisance and want help picking out suitable saddles we can do that too.
Select one or two to try, add to your basket. No need to request a trial, its automaticaly applied to all orders that have paid with a qualifying payment method. Full payment is required.
When your saddle/s arrive try them out ride in them, once, twice, three times. If you are not happy send them back within 7 days of receiving for a refund (subject to the trial terms). A return posting label is included in the parcel, you just pack it back in the original packaging and stick the label on and drop it off at the Post Office.
Saddle fitting/trial at Saddle Cental is available with the use of an independent fitter, see Appointments at Saddle Central page.
If you need to sell your old saddle we can do that for you, we offer three selling options, sell outright, trade in or sell on consignment. See our Sell Your Saddle page for full details of options to sell your saddle.
