What our client’s and professional colleagues have to say…

“”I can’t say enough just how much I love my Half Breed saddle. It is the most comfortable saddle I have ever owned and I treasure it. Paul not only made a beautiful saddle he made sure that it met the needs of my horse and of cause me the rider. I am forever receiving compliments from other riders, wanting to know who made it, so I recommend Paul all the time.”

“Having worked in the field of equine musculo-skeletal health for the past twenty years I realise just how significant it is for the horse and rider to have a correct fitting saddle. To this end I have been recommending Paul to my clients for the past several years . Both myself and my clients have been impressed with his knowledge, attention to detail and workmanship. I also appreciate the fact that he does not deal with only one or two brands of saddle but will address problems with many brands without bias.”

As an FEI rider and dressage coach I know how important it is to have a saddle that fits your horse correctly. Paul Buckland has fitted saddles to both my competition and younger horses in training and in that time has put a lot of care into making sure both horse and rider are completely happy with the outcome.

As a horseman himself he has an understanding of the postures that need to be developed in the competition or leisure horse and aims to help that be achieved in every horse and saddle he works with. I would recommend Paul to be part of the team that helps every horse and rider reach their goals.
