    Question Saddle fitters in North East?

    Im fed up with being so uncomfy in my old saddle and wanted to get a professional to help me make the right choice for a new one.
    Does anyone on here know first hand of a recommended fitter who is close to Newcastle, Northumberland, Durham area?

    We use Simply Saddles. They have a website.

    Have had several checks (different horses) and had two new saddles from them and have had good reliable professional service.

    I cannot recommend Andy the saddle man highly enough. He is based down south but comes up regularly and you can book him through The Saddle Shop.

    Thank you both, those are really helpful. Simply Saddles is quite close to me so will take a look at their shop.

    Andy has emailed me back to book an appointment, so will check them both out.
    Thanks so much.

    I haven't herd very good things about simply saddles though.

    Ooooh more options thank you. Shame about hearing Simply saddles dont have a good reputation.
    Is it anything I should be concerned about if I go and take a visit to the shop?
