Hello Matt,

Just touching base. Sorry for delay it’s been a hectic few weeks away in UK.

So the saddle is mega I love it!!!! And you will be pleased to hear that it secured the best dressage score in the novice section at BE Skipton at the weekend which was 21.5!! Here is a video of the test

Unfortunately no placing as I have had major issues in the show jumping but I am working hard now to iron those out before we are back in the UK in July!!

If you want to share this videos on your site im happy with that or if you need anything from me please advise!

I have left sided cerebral palsy, so my balance isn't good. In the past saddles has always slipped to the right because I tend to put more weight on the right side. This saddle does not move, I am so impressed. I used to always loose my left stirrup, but not with this saddle. Really impressed that Matt Marlow was happy to create a new saddle to fit my requirements, I got the saddle I wanted and it is a perfect fit for my horse

Hi Matt,

Alison just didn’t get enough time to phone you herself today but she wanted me to say thank you for sorting her saddle. We tried it on the Connemara last night, just in the stable and at first she starting biting her lead rope as usual. Then suddenly it stopped. We took it off, fitted it again, and no biting. Alison’s ridden in it today and it’s a perfect fit.
I have one happy horse and one even happier rider. She has a very rare genetic disorder which has affected most of the organs in her body. She’s totally blind and has quite severe muscular problems. The disorder causes hypertonia, which means her muscles are always short and tight. It’s difficult for her to sit up properly and her feet and legs become hard and painful. Today is the first time she’s been able to sit up – simply because the pommel supports her sufficiently. When she’d finished her ride she was excited because for the first time since 1994 her leg muscles were soft and relaxed and one of her comments was that today she actually has a neck and can raise her chin.

She actually compares the saddle to being somewhere between her old Ideal Jessica and the Albion K2 Genesis which physiotherapists advised us she needed. The little horse was just very happy to be able to perform 10 metre circles without any tension. We leave for National Championships tomorrow and number 1 item on the packing list was the saddle.
We’ve never had severe performance problems due to saddles, just niggles which are enough to cost marks with the high standard of competition. Hopefully those niggles have now gone and if today was anything at all to go by things can only improve.
We live in an area that’s not well endowed with saddlers or saddle fitters. Most people seem to struggle. I’ve actually posted on a local Facebook page with details of your services. One lady replied that you had made her two saddles and altered a few and the workmanship is first class. Hopefully we’ll see fewer people asking if anyone can advise a saddle fitter in the area and more people will turn to you.

Hi Matt,

my saddle arrived a couple of days ago and I am over the moon with it. It fits both myself and the horse superbly and looks fantastic. Definitely recommend your service to anybody for any discipline. Will definitely be ordering from you again.

Kind regards Danielle James 18-06-15 Australia

Hi Matt,



Just a quick message to say thank you very much for the saddle. It is really comfy and Paddy is doing well in it. Had a couple of hacks and a couple of schooling sessions and it has not moved at all. The suede seat is incredibly soft so I don`t need my seat saver any more !!!

Will be in touch after a month or so to see when you recommend a check. Everyone on the yard has remarked how smart Jackie and my saddles look !!!

Many thanks.
