Where can I find the serial number on my Frank Baines saddle?

You can find the serial number for every Frank Baines saddle, stamped under the flap (on the sweat flap) generally on the near side of the saddle.

At Frank Baines Saddlery we have been hand-crafting saddles since 1980; that’s a lot of saddles! The serial number helps us to authenticate that the saddle is made by Frank Baines Saddlery. It also enables us to tell you the model, size, colour, fit (at time of manufacture), its specifications and the date it was made and sold.

Example serial number: 17.5 MW 12345

The serial number normally shows the size (eg 17.5″) and the fit (eg MW) followed by a four or five digit number which is the serial number. We keep a database of serial numbers which we can refer to if you need information about the saddle.

In addition, you may see BS6635 – this is stamped onto the stirrup bar by the manufacturer and shows that the stirrup bar meets British Standard BS EN 6635. This is not the serial number.
