Having been informed today that the saddler I have been trying to book with cannot come to me until March I am looking for recommendations in and around Ashford and Tenterden, someone who carries a good selection of new and secondhand thanks!!
I would always use David Dyer, he can have quite a wait though and his time keeping is pretty poor. Always takes his time and wont leave until he is happy with the saddle. Wont sell you a new one unless you need it and always has second hand in.
I've always used sam wiltshire but he's now relocated and rarely in the area. Keith Lovejoy is very good and highly recommended as well. Another good one is Colin Shilling but again he's hard to get hold of.
I had keith lovejoy round today to reflock & check a saddle for me he seemed very through & the reflocking looked good. It's a problem finding someone to buy saddles from you could try juliet Lilley in mayfield I bought my saddle from her & been very pleased with it but you will have to go over there.
