Master Saddle Fitter

Andrea Patterson

Our client relationships are built on trust

We know that waiting for a new saddle can be a stressful time, wondering what will arrive and what will happen if things aren’t right after your saddle fitting.

Circumstances mean you can’t always wait for your exciting new saddle to arrive and so a fit-for-purpose saddle can be provided to you in the meantime. We offer a saddle loan service while you are waiting for your new saddle for a small charge of £10pw. 

You can rest assured with Castle House that we will never leave a client until we are completely satisfied of saddle comfort and fit.  We have both professional and product indemnity, meaning that you have rights and are protected if anything should go wrong.  View our full terms.  Once you have decided on a saddle to buy, we will sign a sales contract and take a deposit of 50% of saddle cost. We will then keep you informed of the status of your saddle, which can be within a few weeks for off-the-peg option and up to 12 weeks for bespoke models.


Andrea’s extensive knowledge and experience during our saddle fittings and checks have helped keep me and my competition horses fit and well for our competitive seasons.

Sara Burdess, 4* Event Rider

Andrea at Castle House Saddlery gives an honest and knowledgeable appraisal for each saddle fitting or check. With a number of high-level competition horses and those in for schooling it is imperative that we keep them comfortable and in work.  Engaging Andrea’s services allows us to do this.

Christina Foley, MPF Horse Talent

I value Andrea’s opinion as she is honest and reliable in her approach.  I think we are all guilty of just wanting that instant solution for our horse’s saddle fit but Andrea made sure my horse and I had the best solution for our long-term partnership and the value and level of support I received from the service was outstanding.

Jodine Milne-Reader, unaffiliated allrounder

I love working with Andrea as she always wants the best for me and my horses.  Competing at the level that I do with Showjumping it is imperative that my saddlery supports comfort and recovery.

As an independent and impartial saddle fitter, we stock a range of saddlery brands including Fairfax, Kent & Masters, Thorowgood, Ideal, Walsall Riding, Barclay & Co, Whitaker, Jeffries, Harry Dabbs, Bliss, Cavaletti and Regent. Our saddles start from £500 up to 4,000+ for more performance brands.  We offer a limited range of high-end second-hand saddles only starting from around £1000 and we typically will only accept part exchange for saddles we have originally sold except in exceptional circumstances of quality saddles with proof of purchase.
