Why champion Joyce loves Frank Baines Saddles:

I feel extremely lucky collaborating with Frank Baines Saddlery. Contacts that arise spontaneously feel the best and I believe this is a great example of that. When I first rode in the Adagio, I immediately felt some differences in the details; just that bit of extra movement in my horses’ back in the transitions. Besides that, the saddle feels very comfortable for me. The service is very good. It’s excellent to have a great saddle-fitter on board my personal team, together with a wonderful brand in Frank Baines Saddlery!”

“I loved the sitting, the fitting and the modern design.  Tine my fitter measured Duke fully so the saddle would fit him 100%I tested some different saddles and chose an Operetta.  I went through all the custom options on Build My Baines, I really enjoyed doing that!”

Since I had my new saddle, for me and Duke it’s made a world of difference, his movements are so much better and he has more space to moveI broke my back 4 years ago and sometimes with my old saddle or other saddles I had a bit of pain after riding, now I can spend as many hours as I want in my new saddle without any pain! So, I’m really happy with it.”
