"I'm in love with my new Equipe Emporio saddle and thoroughly recommend Steph and Freedom Saddlery to anyone looking for saddle advice"Philippa Williams, Treuddyn, Flintshire (4th at BD North West Regional Champs Prelim 2012)
"Thank you for a friendly and professional service. My youngster was a challenge to fit, but is now working happily in a saddle which suits both of us. Its also very reassuring to know that you will be there to advise as he develops and changes shape." Liz White, Llandulas, Conwy.
What a good experience! With Steph's advice and skills as an independent saddle fitter, the right saddle to suit my horse was recommended. I have purchased a saddle that not only fits my young horse, but also fits me, ensuring we are both working in balance together. The consultation was very thorough and as a McTimoney Practitioner for animals I am delighted to see such care go into saddle fitting to ensure the horsesback musculature and mobility is not compromised in any way"
