Side Saddle Fitting Services

HCS, USA Saddlery is the first Qualified Saddle Fitting Services to offer Side Saddle Fitting in the USA.  Trained by SMS & MS Laura Dempsey- our services include:

  • Refitting your current side saddle

  • Reflocking your current side saddle

  • Complete safety check for saddles, as these saddles are often over 100 years old (please note the average safe life for a well cared for leather saddle including fixtures and fittings is 25 years)

  • Small repairs & girth replacements

  • Leaping head extensions ​

  • New custom side saddles can be measured and ordered through us from tracing and measurements taken at appointments 

Please realize that side saddle balancing is a completely different skill and takes more time to achieve. Refitting appointments will be a minimum time of 1.5 hours and so will be more expensive than standard astride appointments.
