scroll.gif (8465 bytes)

Keeping your tack in good repair will greatly improve your safety
as well as enhance your enjoyment and the performance of your horse.

Wool flocked saddles need regular maintenance, as the flocking becomes hard, lumpy and uneven over time,
This needs to be addressed by Re-flocking, every 1 to 2 years depending on the saddles use.
A properly re-flocked saddle will make a very positive difference, in the way your horse moves
and your position in the saddle

the attention of a saddler are
 

1 Saddle sliding forward or backward
2 Pommel resting on the withers
