    Default Saddle fitter in Marion/Alachua/Putnam County Fl?

    Hi all! Started a thread in the HJ section, but didn't get that much traffic, so I'm looking here. Looking for a fitter that specializes in h/j saddles. I've been having a heck of a time fitting my mare, and I haven't been happy with the fitter I've been using, who I would say is more so dressage saddle oriented. TIA!

    Not sure that this will be helpful, but Katie Gussenhoffen from County Saddlery will be down sometime in August; she stays in Ocala while here, covers much of the state. you might want to contact her.

    Thanks for the post. I was supposed to have a fitting with Katie about two weeks ago but she never called me back . Wanted to go a more independent rep route, if possible.

    Lea Ann Rogers is an independant fitter and she is in Green Cove Springs, FL which is south west of Jacksonville and travels all over. She is amazing and also does body work for your horse.

    Contact lrogers5@bellsouth.net or 904-591-0540.

    And I use Louise Palmer, who was trained by Mike Scott - she goes all over the state. I like her a lot (and have found her quite knowledgeable, and I'm fairly knowledgeable myself about saddle fit). She recommended a saddle solution that was within my limited budget (we are still working on that one!) and was very responsive. She also has a good selection of used saddles available also.
