Heritage Bespoke Saddlery?
Has anyone purchased a saddle from here? If so, how was the end product?
I was thinking about getting a new (not new to me) saddle in the next year-ish. None of my jumping saddles fit my current horse and I'm having a hard time finding a used one that does - it doesn't help that there are no saddle shops in the area that cater to the english rider (unless I want to drive an hour +).
I was thinking about this saddle or this one. My boy has a fairly big shoulder and while a little straight, has a good range of movement. I'm short-ish (5'3"), but with a long leg. I was kinda hoping they could do a "large shoulder" version of the monoflap one, though it seems that they "cut back" the bottom flap so that probably isn't a possibility.
I can't afford to pay $3,000+ for a new saddle. This saddle maker is about a third of the price and will even do calf skin for an additional £125.
