"Coming from a background in Equine Therapy I knew just how important it was for my horse to have a correctly fitting saddle. After talking to several saddle fitters with many varied and confusing opinions I was recommended to Renee. From the start of our conversations she was caring, attentive and so knowledgeable. She understood my dilemma with saddle fit and helped me find the solutions I wasn't getting anywhere else. Throughout the saddle fit and making process I felt that Renee didn't just do a job but helped to educate me about how my saddle should feel and sit. She explained the where the issues with my last saddle were coming from and how she would be able to correct that. I was able to watch my entire saddle being made through her exceptional social media presence, which in itself is a massive job, that's a pretty cool and personal part of the process which I felt super privileged to see. Renee was there to give feedback and answer and questions or requests I had during the process and her carving work of my protea on the back is nothing short of a piece of art. My first ride in my saddle simply gave me back my horse. Anyone that has had ongoing under saddle knows the feeling of utter relief when your favourite horse strides out comfortably! River has his beautiful bounce and happy demeanour back all because of the time and effort that went into making him a saddle that really fits! I will treasure this saddle for years to come for all the enjoyment it has already brought to me! I have no doubt that these unique and beautiful Renee Matthews saddles will indeed become something of a collectors item in the future. Thank you so much Renee. If there was a button for ten stars I'd be hitting that!"
