From Saddles Direct to the Saddlers’ Den

Well known throughout the industry as president of the SMS and founder of Saddlers’ Den in Southport, Chris Taylor passed on his wealth of experience and knowledge over a three-day programme to our very own saddle consultant Nicola and co-worker Chloe.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

With the increasing demand for saddle consultations, Nicola and Chloe travelled to Saddlers’ Den to meet Chris, excited to learn a few new tricks of the trade in order to continue adding value to each consultation they do.

“In recent weeks there have been occasions where we’ve helped customers who have needed a slight re-flock, with the new season ahead.

The amazing programme helped extend our knowledge of saddle construction. Chris taught us how to remove, replace and repair different saddle panels as well as providing us with more in-depth information about the different types of trees.

We thoroughly enjoyed the course and can’t thank Chris enough for the knowledge we have both gained to help us advise and help customers even further with maintenance and repairs” Nicola comments.

So, if you’re overdue a saddle check-up or in need of some help with the repair or maintenance of your saddle, we would love to help!

Give us a call today on 01282 471 911 to speak directly to an experienced saddle consultant. Or, complete our quick and easy to use saddle consultation form and we’ll be in touch with you as soon as possible.
