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 we can fit an incredible range of horses!

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.


Such a relief to work with Amanda after only having experience with specific brand representatives. She was extremely helpful and respectful of budget and preferences. She answered all of our questions and was honest and knowledgeable. Thank you!

I felt that the info I was given was straight forward and without bias. It appears my horse might have taken a fall out at pasture and was body sore. This made him ouchy in front. Amanda was very considerate of his soreness.

She was full of information. Able to answer all of my questions. And made sure that the saddle was right for both me and the horse. Would highly recommend her!

I’m thrilled to have found a great saddle fitter. Amanda is very knowledgeable and The Saddle Tree is very good about prompt communication.

I appreciate that when Amanda is adjusting a saddle, that she actually watches me ride in it and then makes the appropriate adjustments. I also like the amount of information that she gives me. For example my previous saddle fitter gave me so much information regarding what I needed that it was overwhelming and not useful. I also appreciate that she is able to accommodate the occasional weekend appointment.

Amanda went through our tack room matching saddles to our polo ponies. I learned a lot by watching her process and she took the time to explain why some saddles worked for each horse and others didn’t. I feel better equipped to assess saddle fit myself on a daily basis. I was surprised by the saddle she chose for one withery mare, but by the time Amanda finished adding wool to the panels it was a beautiful fit! I was also impressed by the quality of the repairs that Amanda did for us. I would definitely recommend her! .
