I'm trying to find recommendations for a good knowledgeable saddle fitter, preferably someone that could come out to the yard in Monaghan as I have no horsebox at the moment.
I've used saddle fitters previously but not had great experiences with them, the most recent one came out, saw me riding her in my saddle, checked it all over and told me my saddle fitted my mare only to discover later that it really didn't fit her at all and was affecting her back quite badly.

So if anybody has any recommendations they would be greatly appreciated :)

I take it you are the same people posting this all over facebook also?

I'll say what I said on that post before it was deleted due to so many people supporting Robert
Robert fitted my exceptionally fussy horse with an excellent saddle which suits us both perfectly. My horse already has some back issues which have been helped rather than hindered by this well fitting saddle. I'm sorry that you are so unhappy but I will defend a hard working local business owner with whom I have only ever had excellent experiences
