Dear mattymarlow,

Hi Matt,
I have received my headcollar, purchased on eBay, today and feel I must write to say thank you very much for a wonderful product, I went to a large saddlers last weekend and saw they had John Whitaker headcollars in leather for sale. I wondered if mine was going to be as nice, and when it arrived I can honestly say it was 10 times better! It is such good quality, I am really pleased. I will be ordering a made to measure bridle from you for my youngster along with his first saddle. Thanks again for a brilliant service xx

Hi Matt,

I've had four rides now in the saddle and it's been fantastic. You can use this on your website if you like:

"I struggled for months to find a proper fitting saddle and came across Heritage Saddlery's ad on ebay. The feedback was positive so I decided to try going custom and I'm glad I did. The quality, workmanship and Matt's communication (not to mention saddle making skills) are second to none. My wide shouldered mare is very happy and so am I. Not only did the saddle fit but it's the most comfortable saddle I've ever ridden in and that includes saddles from the "best" known names. Matt and Heritage deserve to be among the best and I would not hesitate to have him make me a saddle in the future. "

The photos attached are of a clinic I did last week. It was terribly windy and the mare is skittish in the wind but she held herself together for an hour. At least the saddle worked even if the wind was impeding our work!

Also, I shared photos of the saddle and my feedback with Cordia Pearson, the master saddle fitter from Minnesota.

Cheers and a thousand thanks!

hi matt finally got round to letting you know we are more than delighted
with the saddle, we are training to go away to a 3 day event just now and
the difference it has made is brill. We had trouble with her not picking
up her fore legs properly and we were sure it was saddle problems as
lunging her bareback there was never a problem. It has taken her a little
while and it must be said us too to have confidence in the saddle but she
is improving in leaps and bounds and jumping with greater confidence every
outing now. it is beautifully made and comfy to sit in i will certainly be
back when i need a saddle again and wouldn't think twice about having one
custom made again it is the way to go, i was beggining to lose faith in all
saddle fitters until we got in touch with you nothing was a problem and my
worries were put at ease every time we spoke so all in all a very satisfied
cutomer who will, and has been recommending you to anyone looking for a
saddle thank you very much again and i will be in touch shortly as we will
need a reflock sometime soon

Hi Matt.....you recently made a bespoke Marple WH saddle for my
arab......just to let you know it fits him perfectly and I'm really really
pleased with it. I wish I'd have known about you 18months ago...it would
have saved me time, money and stress trying to find a saddle to fit him.
I've only ridden him in it 3-4 times so far but he's like a totally
different horse- he's relaxed, striding out, stretching his neck.....and
most importantly no bucking or rushing. He's standing still to be mounted
and even waited for me to shorten my stirrups without trying to dash off
straight away. Plus it looks really smart- you never know, we might get it
together enough to be out showing in it this year...

Once again...many many thanks......

Hi Matt,

I took my horse up to Carolyn's today to get our new LS Jumping Saddle. It is
more than I ever dreamed of. The quality of workmanship is superb and best
of all Phoenix went so well in it. His shoulders were so free, far better
than any other saddle I have tried (and thats a fair few !). He jumped like
a stag, he looked so happy and I felt so safe. The design is absolutely
fantastic and I am so pleased. Thank you so much. I can't wait to go for a
massive hack tomorrow. ( maybe have a pub stop to celebrate !) I will
recommend you to all my friends in the riding club.

Thanks again.

Dear Matt,
Thank you for the beautiful saddles delivered to us in the land of Oz...
It arrived 2 days before Christmas - feww..
It fits lovely and the pint sized rider is very happy with her new saddle.
Such beautiful craftsmanship. Our bridle to match is fantastic such fine
features will definitely look fabulous on the riding ponies.
Fantastic result for us fussy buggers 🙂
Thank you very much Matt,
I highly recommend the Heritage Saddlery for their excellent work and
ability to adapt your own personal touch to the final masterpiece.
Thanks Mate

Hi Matt,

I just wanted to follow up on my new MK II LS saddle I received a couple of months ago.

As you know I struggled to find a saddle that would fit my young 17h warmblood. He is narrow and has a very high wither that runs a long way into his back. I tried many brands of saddle and had a couple of saddle fittings, however no-one had a option that cleared his long wither.

After sending you his measurements and photographs, I didn't really think you could build something that would satisfy all my criteria for both horse and rider. After all a tracing and a few pictures to a saddle maker on another continent? But Matt kept in touch and shared information about a special tree design that his father had kept around.

The saddle arrived on schedule, the workmanship and quality of the leather is fantastic and well beyond what one would expect for that price (I have a couple of saddle that cost a lot more but are certainly not superior).

I have now been using the saddle for several weeks and am starting to see some changes:

1. Within a few days my horse was moving more freely and seems more comfortable.

2. He has moved up two jumping levels.

3. He is starting to show more muscle on his top line, especially around his shoulders.

4. This saddle needs no breaking in. From day one it felt as though I had owned it forever!

I would highly recommend Heritage Saddlery to anyone looking to purchase a good quality saddle. Also, if you need a custom fit for you or your horse, Matt offers great service and tremendous value.

Thank you!

Hi Matt

Time to do a review for you

Long story short, like a lot of people I've spent a lot of time and A LOT of money on saddles and fitters trying to fit bad saddles to my gelding who is a difficult to fit Welsh cob - short backed, now a dipped back, big shoulders. At the beginning of last year my boy was diagnosed with a bad back, inflammation and muscle atrophy due to a badly fitted saddle. End of last year he had the all clear to ride. I spent most of last year researching saddles and fell upon Matt, I liked the idea of the ying yang LS vsd saddle, after running out of money I decided to sell a load of stuff to raise money for one. Decided to get a made to measure version, but I was apprehensive due to being let down so many times and having to do the measurements my self.
I've now been riding in it for the couple of weeks and I love it, so does my boy, bearing in mind he is now chubby and unfit he is soooo much more forward going. He moves so much more freely allowing him to stride out more, and get his bum underneath him I wish I done this year's ago. The saddle is smart, lightweight, comfortable and puts you in the right place. Worth every penny.
Anyone in need of a saddle just call Matt, the "large shoulder" range is a genius idea and worth the money if you have a large shouldered horse. Would definitely have another.

Thanks so much Matt

Kind regards

Hi Matt,
The Cheshire County saddle you made for me and my horse has been a great success. We did our own tracing under your guidance via photos and videos. The tracing was sent back to you and a bespoke saddle was carefully handmade and delivered to my door. The whole process was professional and efficient. We had our six month routine check today by a local saddle fitter. She was very impressed with the quality and fit of my saddle. It just needed a slight adjustment and a bit of flocking as my horse has changed shape over the months.
Thank you so much Matt for your expertise and craftsmanship. I highly recommend Heritage Saddlery for any one contemplating a bespoke saddle.

Regards, Jo Pocklington

Comments for your page lovely. I hope you're well.

After a lot of issues and various saddle fitters for my D mare I'd lost all hope of getting that perfect show cut saddle. My mare was un rideable, bucking, bolting and rearing with ill fitting saddles which numerous professionals said fit her perfectly.
I asked Matt to come out and start again. After literally looking at my mare and the saddle I was trying to ride in he advised on the tree being too narrow for her. We measured her up and I said what I wanted and within 6 weeks I received the most beautiful saddle! Matt came back to fit it and watched us ride. We were both so much more comfortable and she relaxed as we used to.
I've now got three tailor made saddles from Matt at Heritage Saddlery, and I certainly won't be using anyone else. My horses are all different breeds and sizes and have their saddles made to fit them. Not the horse to fit the saddle! Amazing and stunning work!
Thank you Matt!

Hi Matt,

Received the bridle today, it's gorgeous!! Can see myself having to replace all mine now!

If you want to send me some of your business cards I will hand them out at the shows this season.

Can I just tell you how delighted we are with the pony saddle you made for
our Welsh B mare. She moves so much better now with free shoulders and the
saddle fits perfectly. I don't even need to use the crupper strap now as the
saddle no longer creeps up her neck.

Thank you so much for your help with this lovely pony to make her more
comfortable while ridden

Kind regards
