Demo saddles can be trialled here on-site in Woodend Victoria. There is a redeemable demo/fit fee of $60 per hour or part there of after, with the first hour free for weekdays Tuesday to Friday. Saturday is $90 per hour or part there of, with the first hour free. If a new saddle purchase is made on the day then this fee is waived. It is also redeemable at a later date when a saddle order is received. If a new saddle purchase is made on the day then this fee is waived. It is also redeemable at a later date when a saddle order is received.

 

Alternatively, you can hire one of our demo saddles for a minimum of 10 days and really put it through its paces! Please see the Demo Saddles page for details. This is the best option as it really does let you know if the saddle will work long term for you and your horse/s.

If you would rather take the plunge and take full advantage of our 10 day - no questions asked - return policy, that applies to all new saddles purchased from Ghost Saddles Australia (unless otherwise stated at time of order), then I am here to assist you with the fitting of your new saddle via email, phone, video etc. My ability to assist you accurately, is highly dependent on the photos you provide. Please ensure that no strong shadows are being cast on your horse whilst making sure you are in good light. An overcast day is ideal. Please see example photos below. Please note these are not supposed to be examples of good or bad saddle fit, they are purely meant to be used as a "photo taking guide", so you can send in good usable photos for your saddle fit assessment.

Photo Instructions for Remote Saddle Fit Assessment

 1) Make sure your horse is standing square and on even ground

2) Make sure your horses head is in a neutral position: not grazing 

3) Make sure there are no shadows being cast on your horse or sun glare distorting the clarity of the images

4) Please note it is best not to use a saddle pad when taking these photos (even though there is a pad in these photos).
