Harry Dabbs has launched a new saddle servicing program. This means that you can now have your saddle fully checked and refurbished by the same Master saddler who created it.
Included in the fee of £90 (UK only) is the carriage to and from the factory plus the following checks:
" Complete tree assessment - checking symmetry, soundness, head rivets and girth webbing.
" Stirrup bars - check for damage and fixings
" Girth straps - stitching and level of wear
" Flocking - assess flocking balance
" Professionally cleaned and treated with leather feed.
We will re stitch girth straps and replace if necessary. Any stitching on the saddle that has become undone Eg. Stitching that holds the panels in at the front and back or on the flaps will be included within the £90 fee.
If your saddle needs further attention our Master saddler will contact you to discuss before any additional work is under taken.
If you like to know more about our saddle service programme please email firstname.lastname@example.org

Vale Brothers Ltd support TRC (Thoroughbred Rehabilition Centre)
Each year thousands of horses leave racing, some because they reach the natural end of their career, others through injury, old age or lack of ability. The Thoroughbred Rehabilitation Centre is the original charity dedicated to the welfare, re-training and re-homing of ex-racehorses.
Two qualified SMS saddle fitters from Jaguar Equestrian by Harry Dabbs have recently been working closely with staff at the TRC to develop a range of saddles suitable for the various types of Thoroughbreds. Six new saddles by Harry Dabbs have now been provided to assist the charity and their dedicated team with their retraining programmes .
With funds of around £1500 needed every day to keep the centre running, the charity constantly looks at ways to increase their revenue and raising awareness for the centre.
Kath Pinington(yard manager/trainer at TRC) will be giving a demonstration at Your Horse Live about the assessment process for a new horse arriving at the centre and how they assess the horse for athletic potential in particular its suitability for Eventing. If you are thinking of attending YHL please do go along to see Kath and her team working with these intelligent and graceful horses.
