Welcome!

The Saddle Tree, LLC is ready to meet all your saddlery needs across Ohio and beyond. We are able to work with all English saddles including dressage saddles, jump saddles, endurance saddles, close contact saddles, eventing saddles, general purpose saddles, polo saddles, Icelandic saddles and more!

As a Certified Independent Saddle Fitter, owner Amanda Berges is trained to work on all English saddles, and yet does not work for any brand or label so clients’ needs are the only priority.

Amanda has carefully selected four saddle makers to work closely with based on their top quality products, outstanding customer service and ability to fit a wide range of horses: Black Country, Frank Baines, E. Jeffries, and Harry Dabbs. Between them there is not a horse we can’t fit! Try me. 😉

Perhaps even more important is the full range of saddle fitting services available across Ohio and to surrounding areas. Protect your investment and your horse’s back with regular reflocking. Billet repair or replacement, restitching whatever may have come loose and removing knee/thigh blocks are just a few of the repairs that The Saddle Tree can provide, and many can be done on the spot. No need to be without your saddle for even a day!

 

Not sure what saddle fitters do or why you need one? You are not alone! There has been such a shortage of quality saddle fitting services available in Ohio that many people have just gone without. To help you understand why that is not your best option, The Saddle Tree offers FREE educational presentations to equestrian groups such as 4-H, Pony Club, or your local horse club. These are personalized to the needs of the group and can be held in the barn, a classroom, or your living room. Amanda may bring bare trees and saddles that can actually be taken apart to see what is inside.

I was extremely happy working with Amanda at The Saddle Tree. Amanda is all about the horse’s comfort, and she did an amazing job adjusting my saddles. Riding my horse before and after the adjustment was like night and day. I was impressed with Amanda because she was not just out to sell me a saddle. I did try a variety of saddles and we identified which type my horse is the most comfortable in and which type suits me best, but she encouraged me to wait until my horse was completely filled out before buying. I don’t know too many sellers who would do that. Since one of my saddles is not a perfect fit for my horse, after she is muscled up I plan on getting a saddle from Amanda – I wouldn’t go anywhere else.

Just wanted to send you a quick update and thank you for the saddle fit recommendations! My horse Rain has dips behind his withers causing our new saddle (which fit otherwise) to slide forward onto his shoulder. Based on your recommendation, I got a curvy girth and a non slip pad, and this combo has been working out great! We got the Success Equestrian no slip pad and it keeps the saddle in place. Rain seems happy and is moving better than ever! So thank you! 🙂
