I am a fully qualified Master Saddle Fitting Consultant (MFSC). I have been lucky to grow up and live in rural Cornwall, and have ridden, loaned and owned horses my whole life. Cornwall saddle fitting is my own saddle fitting business which I started in 2020, right in the middle of the covid-19 pandemic!

I cover all areas of Cornwall, selling quality second hand saddles. I have a broad collection of saddles in stock, comprising of brands such as Albion, Black Country, Ideal, Jeffries and many more. I offer a range of services from reflocking, to stitching repairs, to the saddle fitting itself. The current cost of a consultation is £50. During this I will do an assessment of your horse, conformation and gait analysis, your current saddle, a thorough safety check of stitching, girth straps and tree soundness, as well as taking a template of your horse for your record (as an owner) and my reference.

    Alice has fitted my existing saddles and tweaked them so both horses are comfortable. So great to have a saddler who can make changes to the flocking there and then. Recommend Alice .

    I’ve used Alice a few times now and always been happy with the results. She takes time to find out what your needs are dependent on work load and discipline, and your horses shape. When i was looking for a dressage saddle i was able to try a couple and then have the one i liked on trial to make sure I was happy. During the trot up she picked up on several issues (that we were already aware of) but it was great to see her knowledge and awareness of subtle problems.

    We took our new dressage saddle out for it’s first competition today, what a difference ❤🐴🥇
    My horse is much comfier and our results showed it 🥇
    It’s every horse owners nightmare when the saddle fitter confirms that your saddle isn’t fitting 😓
    However, Alice made the whole process of finding us a new saddle stress free. Alice is knowledgeable, patient and very helpful. She picked up a muscle weakness on my horse that my horses physio and chiropractor are working on with one basic trot up. Alice sourced us a new saddle in a short amount of time and knew exactly what would suit my horse.
    Thank you Alice, see you soon.

    I was so impressed with Alice – so friendly, knowledgeable and she explained everything so clearly. No hard selling – just so genuine and honest in her approach. Will definitely be using her again in the near future and highly recommend to anyone looking for a reliable saddle fitter!

    Alice was helpful, professional, knowledgeable and explained the process in a way that anyone could understand. She came with a range of saddles to try, there was no pressure to buy and with a weeks trial on the saddle, it has given me time to think. Highly recommend!

    Highly recommend Alice to anyone who is looking for a reliable, very efficient and calm saddler. I have for years been finding it very difficult to try and find a saddle that fits my mare especially as she is never the easiest to fit. Alice brought a great variety of saddles with her and really listened to everything you and your horse were looking for. Absolutely fantastic 🙂

    I am so pleased that Alice was able to come out and fit both of my horses with new saddles and that they are now going so well in them. Also the added bonus that the saddles she fitted are comfortable for the rider and offer the correct support for the disciplines. Alice was patient with the horses and took her time to carefully analyse the horses’ conformation and in action under saddle too. I can definitely recommend her.

    Alice is friendly and Knowledgeable… she also really listens and takes on board what your looking for, I’m very fussy about what saddles I like and I’ve found in the past that saddle fitters are only worried about if it fits the horse . Whereas Alice not only fitted a saddle to my horse but also to me and my taste. I’d highly recommend her

    Professional and knowledgeable, happy to explain and discuss as she works. Alice is honest and only reccomends saddle change and maintenance if its needed, her stitch work and flocking is top quality. Nothing is too much trouble.

    Very helpful visit yesterday from Alice now to get my girl back into work slowly again since acute laminitis last May. Highly recommended and looking forward to the future.

    We have used Alice at our yard on numerous occasions now. She is extremely thorough, knowledgable and has great attention to detail when choosing the correct saddle fit. Her after-sales follow ups are extremely helpful and included in initial visit cost. She has helped us fit 4 horses already and has beautifully reflocked saddles that needed attention. Would definately recommend her service.

    Really pleased to have found Cornwall Saddle Fitting. Alice provides a thorough check and fitting service, delivered with care, attention and professionalism. Alice also has a wide ranging stock of second hand saddles, and isn’t affiliated to a particular brand, so her advice on fitting is impartial and therefore what is truly best for you and your horse. I will definitely be turning to Alice when I look to buy my next saddle as I feel confident that her knowledge and ability to turn up with a range of saddles will eliminate the usual pitfalls of second hand saddle shopping. Highly recommend 🙂

    I can not recommend Alice highly enough. Very thorough fitting and excellent service. Fitted 2 of my horses with time ,care and patience. She has reflocked a saddle and replaced girth straps both done to a very high quality. The after care is fantastic and is happy to sell on saddles that are no longer fitting. Truly one of the best experiences of saddle fitting I have had.

    Excellent service! Alice fitted a saddle for our new pony last summer. She was very professional great with the pony and ensured that the saddle fitted well. There was no hard sell of her own stock. I will definitely be using her again.
