Thank you very much for an excellent saddle. Seems to fit horse and rider very well. Great service and great product. Will recommend you to others.
Cheers Pete

Hi Graham Received my saddle today. It is better than in the photos. I cannot wait to have a ride. One question how much do you oil it? Do you want anything for the girth as well? I didn’t expect it to come with one. Again thanks so much, Lyneen.

Saddle arrived last evening and I am absolutely besotted with it. Will put it on Anna as soon as I can. Thank you so much. Everyone who sees it is blown away. It has pride of place in the lounge at the moment on a proper stand that Mike made especially for it. I am also very happy with the weight of the saddle. Cheers Billie Mike & Billie Ward

Hi Graham, Just want to thank you for the wonderfull saddle. Due to illness ( stroke ) I have had difficulty finding a saddle to meet my requirements.I had tried several different types to no avail. It needed to have the right dip in the seat, size of thigh rolls, narrowness in the waist, and also fit my horse properly. We took the horse to Graham Turner for a fitting, and he built me a saddle exactly to my requirements. I have used it on some big rides at Raetihi, and have been very secure and comfortable. Graham put some extras on it especially to my requirements, ie a monkey strap. It fits my horse perfectly and doesnt move. I also had some matching saddle bags made. These are secured by the rear cinch which is amazing as they dont flap or bang, just sit perfectly. Thankyou Graham, I was considering giving up riding, but now am back in the saddle and having fun. Cheers Karen Blakelock

Hi Graham

Thank you for my saddle...I love it! It is awesome, beautiful and sooo cool. It has exceeded my expectations ten fold. It's an awesome colour and I love the detail, not too much and not too little! It is so comfortable and the horses are happy in it.
Thank you sooo much and I will keep in contact for my next one!

Kind regards


Hi Graham

My new show saddle is all that I could of hoped for ,lucky I have a saddle stand that can fit both of my Dove saddles on.

All I can say is Buy NZ made,your saddles are truely a credit & I love that fact I created it too,to suit my taste.

 Hi Graham,

Just wanted to let you know that my saddle arrived today, it's absoutley beautiful, even better than the photos. Even my husband is impressed and thats saying something lol. Whats the best thing to keep it looking like this? Do you oil or just use a leather feed?

Thanks heaps and heaps



 Hi Graham

Thanks for the reply.I'm glad you are doing well with your saddles,thats great.

My white trick saddle has stood up to time & I used it in Australia for a year at

least 4 times a week in shows!

The white has worn a bit & as for the fenders,straps & stirrups,they have never 

broken or even worn out !

 Hello Graham

 Hi Graham,
The saddle has just arrived and I couldn't wait to email you to say how happy I am with this purchase. I was like a child at Christmas time, I couldn't wait to open the box :)
Thank you so much for the girth too. I was not expecting that at all. I am so very, very happy :)

 Hi Graham

Just got in from going for the first ride in the saddle.

All looks good and am very happy.
