    I think cobs are the " Baldrick " of the horse world they always seem to have a cunning plan to do something different each day to test you.

    TRUSTED saddler in Norfolk

    I use Bob from Juddpurs in Halesworth, if you tell them when you book that you have limited budget he will know what saddles to bring out. I have never been talked into spending more than I could afford and he is very thorough in his fitting, I cannot recommend him highly enough.
