Many of my customers have some very creative ideas on how they want their saddle to be made. Many just want minor adaptations to my current saddle styles. Others have very different saddles in mind.
I will consider all of your ideas! I will also let you know if I do not think I can do your ideas justice to create your saddle. Each is an individual decision and individually priced.
The best way to let me know what you'd like is to find a photo or sketch that best represents your ideas, and send them along to me. That REALLY helps me to "be on the same page" to create the saddle you are envisioning.

Please Note: Saddles are made to fit the horse, not necessarily the figures. Some figures are difficult to seat properly due to the limitations of their joints.
