THANK YOU JENNY 😊💙
"I have owned my Quarter Horse for 2 years and over a period of 1 year I have had 4 different saddle fitters, some local and some not, attempt to fit a saddle to my boy. All have failed to get either a brand saddle or other to properly fit my horse. After talking to Catherine, my Horse Dentist from Equine Performance Dentistry, she suggested I contact Renee, she told me that she does great work and she should be able to help me. Catherine was nice enough to get me the contact details and I contacted her straight away...
Well, Renee was a breath of fresh air from the beginning, she gave me the data of her services along with her costs and we started the ball rolling with “a proper” saddle fitting.
After watching Renee at work and showing me how each of the measurements are obtained I could see why previous fitters had failed. There was also another problem I had which was that my daughter who also rides my horse is very short, therefore what fenders would fit me, don’t fit her as well. Renee assured me that she could work out a solution to this- She got our measurements too.
During the process of making my saddle Renee was happy to continue to answer my questions promptly and completely. Even questions that had nothing to do with the saddle she was making but regarding saddles for my other horse. Nothing was too much trouble for her and she was always polite and helpful.
My new saddle arrived and we put it on him and I finally got to ride him with a proper saddle on and I was really impressed. The saddle was comfortable, looked beautiful, sat properly on his back and fenders were adjustable to fit both my daughter and myself, without needing to change the fenders based on who was riding him. Renee had fully accomplished everything she had promised and the difference was chalk and cheese.
The second time I put the saddle on my horse, he no longer demonstrated any of his previous “girthy” symptoms, in fact he was really calm and relaxed while being saddled and when I got him into the arena for some work, his movement and temperament was totally different.
Renee’s service and professional work has given me hours of pleasurable riding on my horse and I have no doubt that the workmanship on this saddle will give me many more years to come .
Thank you very much for your service and a job well done."
