    Default Need to find a reputable saddle repair person for repairs and possible tree widening

    I have some older saddles that I need restuffed, need some areas fixed where the stiching has pulled out, and want to have a saddle looked at to see if the tree can be widened at all. I want to find a reputable person for this that has done all of the above on jump and dressage saddles as a friend just got hers back from a guy that supposedly did a nice job but the saddle looks horrible. I am in WI but have no problems shipping them out.

    Lots of really reputable folks do it. IMO the best PRICED of the very good saddlers is Colin Kimball-Davis, who does the adjustments for Duett Saddles. The above-mentioned saddlers are outstanding but can't touch Colin's prices. And he is every bit as well qualified as they are.

    Thanks everyone! I emailed a few of them to get some quotes. I need 4 saddles done with either full flocking or or just flock ups. And also need some areas fixed, and would love to see if they can take my new jump saddle from a narrow to medium *fingers crossed* Though I have to admit the saddles are in great shape for being 30+ years old!
