FAQ

Your questions, answered
How often should I get my saddle checked for fit?

There are many varying factors that will determine how often a saddle needs to be adjusted. It depends on how the horse’s conformation changes over time, how often the saddle is ridden in, how hard it is used, etc. But as a general rule of thumb saddles should be checked for fit at least every 6 months.

Do you do flocking adjustments on site?

No. This is because we do a more thorough job when flocking. We take the panels completely off of the saddle so we can access all of the panels when flocking. Due to this process, it takes far too long to do the work on site. Many other company reps simply stuff wool in at the side of the panel while the saddle is still completely intact; this process is only semi effective, but can be done on site because it takes hardly any time at all.

Is there any warranty on the saddle?

We stand behind our product. Any manufacturing or workmanship error, diagnosed as such by Revere Saddlery, will be fixed or replaced at no charge.

Do I have the choice of getting my jump saddle with or without rear blocks?

Yes, and it does not change the price.

Do you have different trees for flat back and sway back horses?

Yes. We have multiple differently shaped trees depending on the need of the horse. Regardless of the tree, the seat will still look the same and feel the same to the rider. The difference is how it fits the horse.

Are the trees adjustable, and what does that mean?

Yes they are. This means that it can be narrowed and widened by Revere Saddlery in the case that a horse changes over time or the saddle needs to be fit to another horse.

What are the panels flocked with?

100% real lambs wool. Some companies cut corners by using a synthetic material that creates friction and is much harder that real wool.

Who designs and makes the saddles?

All design is done by Revere Saddlery in California. Parts and materials are sourced from all over the world, largely the USA, England and France.

What is Trapezius Relief and how does it work?

It is the technology we use to design our trees. It frees the horse’s trapezius muscles and allows for freedom of movement in the shoulder. It has a few key points. First, the waist of the tree is made wide so it doesn’t sit on the trap muscles (this also allows for a wider gullet which frees the horse’s entire spine from pressure of the saddle). Second, the tree points are shaped in such a way that provides maximum clearance for the withers, avoiding the withers-pinching that many other saddles do. And third, the tree points are angled slightly backward to free the scapula and allow for free shoulder movement.
