SMART™ saddles are available to purchase worldwide. If you are based in an area where Solution Saddles do not have an Approved Advisor, you can purchase a SMART™ saddle on a sale or return/rental basis. We can advise you on the best saddle model and size by phone or email and discuss fitting guidelines with you before sending you a saddle. We will need the rider height and weight (for an idea of best size) and details about your horse, including size/ type/ condition/ current & future work. This will give us an idea of the best model of saddle to recommend to you. Any photographs of you and your horse are also useful when advising on saddle and fit. please see the guide below. If you would like to arrange to try a saddle, please call or send the above details to email@example.com and we can discuss which saddle would be best for you.
We can give you an expected delivery time and shipping quote when you place the order. Please send details of your delivery address and we can quote for shipping, alternatively you can arrange your own courier service. Shipping charges are not refundable.
International payment options
We can accept payment by credit card or bank transfer. When making a bank transfer, please indicate that you will pay for the associated charges.

We strongly recommend that you have a test ride with a Solution Saddles Approved Advisor where possible to ensure the correct selection of saddle model, size and appropriate accessories for the achievement of optimum performance. The SMART™ saddle system, whilst being a different concept, is easy for even the novice rider or horse owner to understand and utilise without the need for continued specialist help. However, in the same way that you would schedule routine checks from a saddler for a traditional saddle, we recommend that you have regular reviews. We recommend that when a horse is first introduced to a SMART™ saddle, you take things slowly, particularly with a horse that has had a fundamental or dramatic change in the way of going. The horse may be using different muscles in a different way and will require conditioning with short repetitions, building up, to avoid fatigue or strain. There is always help and advice on hand. Call us for free, friendly advice on 07738 711 099.
Our Home Consultancy Service is available for routine checks or if you would like help with fitting to different horses or riders. Please do not hesitate to contact your Approved Advisor for advice as they have seen you and your horse, conducted an assessment and fitting and are in the best position to provide you with any ongoing support. We recommend that when a horse is first introduced to a Solution saddle, you take things slowly, particularly with a horse that has had a fundamental or dramatic change in the way of going.
