1. PICK YOUR SADDLE

Once you have selected a product simply click the “Trial Saddle” button on the product page to add the saddle to your trial basket

Need help choosing the right saddle for you? Scroll down to our expert advice below for hints and tips.

2. CHECKOUT

Go to checkout, where you will be asked to enter your details, confirm our terms & conditions and enter your payment details.

It is important that you read all of the information on the checkout carefully to avoid any confusion and extra charges

3. WE'LL CALL YOU

Upon confirmation and payment of your trial, a member of our team will contact you to confirm your details and delivery.

We will not dispatch any saddles without speaking to you first and we will only hold the saddles for a maximum of 2 days. If we cannot get hold of you, we will cancel the order and refund the shipping amount only.

4. DISPATCH

Once we have confirmed delivery, we will dispatch the saddles via our courier who will call between 9am and 6pm – please note our courier is a third party company and do not guarantee next day delivery.

Occasionally there are shipping issues that are out of our control. Please contact us on 01282 471911 if your saddle does not arrive when expected.

5. START YOUR TRIAL

Your 3 day trial starts from the day you receive your order. If you need to arrange for your local saddle fitter to check the fitting of your trialed saddle(s), please ensure this is arranged on one of your trial days.

During your trial you are entirely responsible for the insurance of the saddle while it is in your possession.

6. RETURN YOUR SADDLE

We will call you at the end of your trial period to arrange payment or collection of the saddle(s). If you are returning a saddle to us please ensure the tag is left on and the saddle is returned in the same clean condition you received it in.

​Our collection fee is £22.50 if no saddle is purchased we only charge a £15.00 administration cost. These fees are taken at the time we arrange your collection

Collection is 9am-5pm Monday to Friday via DPD not Saddles Direct

We will charge a fee of £5 for missing tags and cleaning, if we detect any damage to the saddle we will charge you the full retail price of the saddle and return it back to you.
