Lorna was brilliant. She allowed me to try the WOW Saddles and I was sold from the first sit! Now all four of my horses have WOW Saddles fitted by Lorna and they have never felt better or felt stronger in their work. I love that I can make small adjustments myself, and that I can have the same extra deep seat set up on four very different back shapes. Since changing to WOW I haven’t looked back and I won’t be looking at another brand of saddle ever again.
The saddles flexibility to adapt to your horses changing shape has been invaluable, especially as my horse has changed three head-plate sizes in a year. With this adaptability, I can be sure my horse is comfortable in his WOW at all times allowing him to work with ease and freedom of movement.
I have always had traditional flocked saddles for my horses, but after having many issues with my current horse and getting a saddle to fit him (and me!), I now have a WOW saddle fitted by Lorna and I cannot sing the praises enough! Previously I have been through several saddle fitters, including a master saddler, but none of them were able to fit a saddle that did not make my horse’s back sore within 2-3 weeks, I had the vet out, equine massage, chiropractor etc. it was very frustrating and expensive year!
I have a very quirky warmblood that is very sensitive and if something is not quite right (by that I do not mean in pain, just not quite the right balance, position etc.), he turns into a very difficult and unpleasant horse to ride as he gets tense, spooky and becomes very sharp. After going round the same cycle of new saddle fitter, try a different saddle, sore back, difficult horse etc., I had become very cynical and was seriously considering selling my horse, because he was so difficult. Lorna came to the yard to fit a saddle for my friend and I started talking to her and really liked her approach and asked her opinion on my horse, after a lengthy discussion I decided to try her demo saddle for two weeks. I could not believe the difference in my horse, so much calmer and quieter to ride, don’t get me wrong he will always have an edge and tend to be a bit sharp, but the difference was very noticeable, he was actually rideable!
