My new Paramour saddle fits like a glove, Alphaville has more shoulder freedom and the seat is like a chair giving me great support!”

The Saddle Fitters Choice

 

Working as an Independent Saddle Fitter at North Yorkshire Saddles has given me the opportunity to work with a variety of leading brand saddles, which has helped in my quest for a Monoflap Dressage Saddle.

 

In the past, I have struggled to find a saddle that works well for both my pony and I. Echo is a American Bashkir Curly, whose conformation and breeding is not often seen in the UK.

 

After trying a multitude of different saddles on him, I concluded that Bliss of London’s Hoop Tree worked particularly well with his conformation.

 

The saddles from both the Bliss and Loxley ranges are beautifully made, and offer a vast range of custom fitting and aesthetic options, allowing me to have a saddle that suits both my taste, and Echo’s fitting requirements.

Loxley All Purpose

 

 

In fact, I’m so pleased with the fit, performance and look of my dressage saddle, that I now own a Loxley AP too.

I am delighted to be able to add my own positive experience. I have been riding in my new Loxley dressage saddle I received just about a 2 weeks ago. How delighted I am to report that it has exceeded my expectations. Admittedly, I did not want to have to purchase a new saddle. I did not want to endure the daunting task of figuring out which saddle maker to commit to for my purchase – in my opinion, purchasing a saddle is an enormous financial commitment and much is dependent on it. I have witnessed so many disappointing custom saddle experiences riding friends have had, often those purchases made from well known companies. But, I have a ‘hard to fit’ horse with a high wither, and at the recommendation of my saddle fitter, I was able to demo a Loxley, and purchased it being told of adjustments that could be made to make it even more ideal. And ideal it is. It is comfortable for me, it is comfortable for my horse, I feel confident in it and am delighted with the level of ‘tackiness’ of the leather (exactly what I wanted!). I emailed the company to register my saddle, and received a meaningful reply from Laura Franklin of Bliss. Thank you Bliss of London for my tremendous saddle and for making this an extremely encouraging and delightful experience.

I cannot believe the difference a Bliss Saddle makes!!! I knew that I loved the look of them but after trying one out – all it took was two fences and I was sold!!! Queenies performance was so noticeably enhanced that there was no question and no going back. Try one out – you won’t regret it!!!

Please could you pass on how delighted I am with my Loxley mono flap. I made a monumental mistake when ordering and overlooked the material in which it is made. The workshop and everyone in the office were incredibly patient in changing the calf nappa. Cannot thank you enough as this was entirely my error. I would also like to say how impressed I am with Joanne Breese’ work and professionalism. She was meticulous in measuring both me and my mare and I could not be happier in the way my horse now goes under saddle.

Thank you!

It was quite amazing to feel the difference in how he (Hap) moved and how I could feel so much more contact through my leg.  One of the things I love about Bliss is how you can customize the tree and the saddle to the horse as well as to the rider. I am very petite and always have problems with saddles that don’t fit me correctly.  In the past, I would just sacrifice my comfort in a saddle as long as it was right for my horse and made him happy. But now with Bliss I can have both!

What a great afternoon of training with Daryll Thicket Dressage. Four lessons later, I feel like I’ve had quite a workout! But how amazing does Bommel look in his Schokemohle orange gear and loving his Bliss of London – Saddle Makers of Distinction saddle.

Mango in his Loxley dressage saddle today, maintaining his unbeaten BD record by winning two classes including his first Novice. He says he can’t wait for his new jumping saddle to come, he wants to get out of the arena and do something fun :)

I would like to share my new Bliss saddle brought for me by my lovely other half. After some back and saddle issues the new saddle must be perfect as on Saturday my boy came second in the discovery and first in the newcomers with 4 lovely clear rounds. Thank you Bliss

Seriously excited about finally ordering myself a new Bliss jump saddle. A huge thank you to Rob Biddlecombe who has been so patient and helpful over the last few months of making my mind up (I may be one of most indecisive people going!) even lending me his own Bliss to jump in at Scope and in between as there were problems with my horses saddle. Highly recommend both Rob as a saddler and Bliss for anyone recommend both Rob as a saddler and Bliss for anyone looking for a jump saddle that is also comfortable enough to ride in all the time. Can’t wait for it to arrive – with Rob Biddlecombe.

Had yet another outstanding and positive customer service experience with this company in regards to my dressage saddle. I did not know customer service like this still existed! LOVE my Loxley dressage saddle, and love the customer satisfaction standards of this company!

Can’t wait to order another and come up with another dreamy combination that will be put together so beautifully.

Fabulous saddles, Fantastic saddle-fitting, great customer service. The saddles help the rider to sit in great balance while allowing a close contact feel and freedom. The horses are obviously comfortable when fitted with a Bliss saddle as they move freely and show great willingness to work.

My brand new Loxley saddle! Amazing!!!

“Patty is a wonderful fitter and I can really notice a difference when she works on the saddles. I’ve worked with other brands of saddles but all have them have been foam flocked — I can really see and feel what a difference the wool flocking is making in my horses movement.

My 4* horse, Sir Donovan, is quite long backed and struggles with back soreness. Since I began using the Bliss saddles he is noticeably more comfortable and I find myself needing to do less and less maintenance on his back  (robaxin, meso, etc). The saddles are lovely.”

I absolutely love the Liberty dressage saddle! It is the best dressage saddle I’ve sat in! And my horse loves it! “Dressage is not easy for my event horse but the way this saddle fits him he thinks he’s a dressage horse! And seems to enjoy the work! And to top it off the beautiful craftsmanship, the perfect balance in the seat and blocks make this the best dressage saddle on the market!”
Darrah Alexander, NY, USA

 

Today I had the first opportunity to try my saddle (Paramour Dressage) on DaCapo and ride him.  My trainer also rode him and for the 3 of us, Jane’s words describe our feelings: Ahhhhhhhhhhhh! It is gorgeous and feels even better.  Again thanks for the speed and so accurate to our dimensions most FABULOUS saddle.  I can’t believe after all these years, I finally have a saddle that fits me AND my horse, Thank you!! – Fitter by Tiger Adams, Horse in Sport.

I absolutely love my saddle, it matches my cross country colours! It’s an amazing saddle and finally my horse has a saddle that fits him
- he loves it too!
Alyssa Ford, USA 2013

 

Working with Bliss of London was a great experience, you get such a personal service. Choosing the fine detail was great fun and I LOVE the diamantes on the back, it looks amazing. It is so comfortable and my first competition using it I won twice so I’d say my horse also loves it! – Thank you Bliss of London

I love my Bliss saddle because it was personally designed to fit myself and my horse. It especially helps my seat and legs to stay in the correct position when jumping.
When I am at a show I get many comments on its look and individuality – I really like the way the diamantes sparkle in the sunlight.
