I am once again accepting new clients! Yay! I love meeting new people and their horses. Please, to help me not get overwhelmed again (or prolong the time until it happens next) try to get together with the people at your farm and schedule your fittings together. The more people I can see at each farm, the less time I have to spend driving and the more saddles I can fix. Here’s how my priorities will rank:

1. ) Established clients (and their barn-mates or those who can haul in)

2.) New clients with interesting fit challenges, or referrals from their vet, chiro, or one of my favorite trainers, or new groups of clients

Occasionally someone gets an appointment because they happen to be in the right place geographically when there is a gap in my schedule and I’m in the area, so even if you don’t fit into one of the above categories, if your schedule is flexible, send me your info.


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 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!


Amanda was referred to me by a client when another client of mine was in the market for a saddle, but was overwhelmed with the selection process. Amanda came out to our farm and spent several hours trying saddles with her and was overwhelmingly patient and knowledgable. She helped my client choose at saddle by Black Country that she absolutely loves and fits her horse famously (I also appreciate riding in it too!) I’ve now used Amanda for my personal saddle fittings and recommend her to anyone who asks. Highly, highly recommend!

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! .
