Deva Saddle Fitting is owned by – Juliet Hart (LANTRA qualified saddle fitter).
We are passionate about ensuring that your saddle allows the correct muscular development, ease of movement and comfort for your horse. Our aim is to provide you with a solution to improve the Saddle Fit for your horse, through either adjusting your current saddle, or if your current saddle is unsuitable, we will help you find the right saddle for you and your horse, one that will allow your horse to develop correctly and perform to their optimum.
We have access to a wide range of Second hand Saddles, or we are able to source a new Saddle or ‘Made to Measure’ Saddle if needed/preferred.
We also HIRE Saddles out both short and long term, so you can hire rather than buy.
We work closely with a Master Saddler in Walsall for ‘Made to Measure’ Saddles and Repairs.
We are fully independent and insured.
I have ridden from a child and I have owned a few horses over the years, trying most activities until focusing on Dressage over the last 15 years, enjoying the training much more than competing!, I have trained horses up to Advanced Medium Level and currently have a lovely 7 year old (Wolkenderry sired) Gelding – RAZ who I am training. I also own a homebred 3 year old (Franklyn Sugar sired) Gelding – JERRY who is hopefully going to Event or maybe do some Dressage in the future.
l have had a successful career in Finance over the last 23 years, but my interest in Saddles and how they affect performance led me to a change of direction to become a Remedial Saddle Fitter.
The Remedial Saddle Fitting qualification I hold is the most in depth UK Saddle Fitting qualification available. The focus on ensuring the Saddle supports the horse to develop correctly as well ensuring comfort and for both horse and rider made complete sense!
