Where do you send your saddles to be reflocked and minor repairs done?
Also, what is the cost for reflocking?

We are fortunate to have a wonderful saddle fitter come to our barn every few months to do fittings. Can you find someone who services your area and will come to you?

This person is a certified saddle fitter that should be able to help you.
Also check out Cabin Branch Tack in Southern Pines. They also state that they have a certified fitter who will travel.
Costs can vary rather widely, but I would say you are going to be in the $200 range for the fitting/flocking part.

Ideally find someone that can come out to your barn or you can trailer to meet - the wonderful part of wool flocked saddles is the minute adjustments that can be made suit the horse & rider :)
If you have to ship saddles back & forth (buy the insurance if you love your saddle, even if it's not lost it may be damaged in shipping) that can quickly add to the cost of re-flocking & repairs.
