Saddle Fitting

I am an agent for A H Saddles Ltd, makers of Native Pony and Phoenix saddles, covering all of southern England and the midlands (up to Cheshire and Lincolnshire) as well as Wales. 

Our saddles are wholly British made – all leatherwork is made by hand in Walsall by expert saddle makers on British trees.  We believe they are the best value Walsall made saddles available, of the highest quality and comparable to products up to double the price.  We specialise in fitting wider horses and ponies with flatter seated saddles being available in the Native Pony range, with deeper seats and premium leathers in the Phoenix range.

If you’ve ever had a saddle fitted and been told it’s normal for the saddle to move because your horse is wide and flat – whether slipping on mounting, moving up the neck, lifting at the back or showing a general instablity – then give us a try. It is not normal or acceptable for a saddle to move, and we have the right designs, and all the fitting techniques, to solve these instability issues. It’s amazing how much more fun horses can be to ride when you know you can feel secure in your saddle!

I’m a stockist of Mattes pads, carrying a small stock of correction pads, and can supply custom orders of sheepskin and cotton pads.

I am also more than happy to adjust the flocking in most Walsall-made English leather saddles. Please contact me directly for more information.

From my lovely client Nicky who, with her Welsh section D Victoria,  was ridden M&M reserve champion at the Royal London Show in 2009 shortly after buying her second Native Pony saddle:

“In July 2008 I bought my first Native Pony saddle, the Glen WH, and received excellent service in fitting and buying. Then in august 2009 I went on to buy my show saddle, a Traditional WH, having complete confidence in Stephanie and the company. I found the saddles were by far the best quality I had seen whilst looking around and have tried most other well known saddles. Stephanie is excellent to deal with too, she is very approachable, understanding, and very skilled in her job in fitting.  My horse isn’t the easiest to fit but straight away Stephanie and I struck up a brilliant understanding relationship and she is very patient in getting everything just right for you and the horse.

I would definitely recommend the saddles to anyone – they are the best quality and most comfortable saddles, especially if you have a native pony or a wider horse. I love both my saddles.

Nicky, a very happy customer”
