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.

“Officially am keeping [the trial saddle]. 5th ride and she continues to be a different horse. Was relaxed but short at first, is now opening up, sweeping trot, long and low while I’m on the buckle. It’s like a freaking miracle. We both thank you so so much.”

I am not sure why I didn’t acquire this saddle sooner! I have had amazing rides on my horse since having my Black Country Wexford! He is offering to canter more and my trainer said his transitions are looking so much better as he is lifting his shoulder more. And today we jumped for the first time in a long time. It wasn’t a huge fence or anything, but he actually cantered to it. I think he likes jumping and really feels better in the saddle. I know I do! I can honestly say it is the most comfortable saddle that I have ever sat in. Thanks again Amanda!
