Created in 2004, born from necessity, Saddles Direct is the brainchild of experienced horsewoman, Sarah Lavelle Huxley. After years of trials and tribulations when trying to purchase pre-owned saddles for her own horses, Sarah had reached the end of her tether with poor advice and online marketplaces.
Before Saddles Direct, a customer wanting to purchase a second-hand saddle only had access to a handful of risky options – including buying privately, or through auction sites. In the event that something went wrong, the customer had virtually no comeback and often ended up out of pocket and feeling abandoned. Roll on 15 years, Saddles Direct has launched it’s own brand of high quality, competition saddles, luxurious onsite facilities at Crow Wood Equestrian, an abundance of accreditations and is now recognised as the UK’s biggest saddle retailer with the largest Trial Saddle Bank for all budgets, offering unrivalled choice and customer satisfaction.
Offering a positive, informed and personable method of buying pre-owned saddles, without the risks previously associated with saddle buying, we continue to help thousands of customers throughout the UK and internationally to resolve their saddlery issues alongside a passionate, committed team of equine experts who pride themselves on offering a unique service to suit every customer, in every discipline.
Whether you are looking for a new or used saddle, bridle, girth or any other type of saddle accessory, Saddles Direct is your one stop shop for everything saddle related. Online and in-store, we are committed to ensuring you find exactly what you want with easy and expertise at your fingertips.
We pride ourselves on the journey we have been on to achieve what we have today, including the accreditations we have secured from the Society of Master Saddlers, MSFC saddlers, becoming an official Albion stockist and relationships we have established with sponsored riders, world champions, local charities, riding schools, shows and events, across the country.
