Hi Graham

The saddle arrived yesterdayand it fits perfectly.

Put it on the mare today and cinched it up and she

seems not too worried about it so hopefully I will be

riding her soon.Thanks again and the saddle is superb.

Kind Regards Lisa Zwarts

 Hi Graham            29/3/12
just a note as promised to let you know the lovely saddle and matching bridle etc all arrived, fits well and I am thrilled.
The tracings we did were very effective and the sizing on our boy is just right PLUS the fit for me was exactly what I was after, and hence the saddle allows full comfortable, yet close contact and flexibilty which I haven't experienced in my older saddles.  The tooling is beautiful and I really am thrilled with every aspect of your work - almost too lovely to use!! 
I have attached some photos so you can see how smart Smurf looks and I no doubt we will enjoy many hours of riding with our new gear.
I am more then happy to provide any references that you may need.
with warmest regards and best wishes for 2012

 Testimonial    6/6/12

Graham Turner made me a western saddle a few years ago it has always been a comfortable saddle for me and fitted my horse well and he has never had any problems, even though over the years his back shape has changed a little.

I recently needed a saddle for my young horse and  contacted Graham,  we had many conversations about th type of saddle that would suit. I finally went for an enduro with military girthing.

I have been so happy with it.

Graham has always been happy for me to try a saddle for a while before buying it
which is fantastic.

I looked around at other saddles and makers but  many wanted a contract to pay half on the order and the other half before even taking it home.

Also Graham made the saddle in one week.

I love my saddle, thank you Graham for you very proffessional service.

  Hi Graham, So sorry for not being intouch!! Got home from work late and had to pack for kids camps today so was all bit chaos so once I got kids to bed and a moment I finally opened my parcel .... I am so bloody happy!!!! Even my 12year son made who doesn't comment on much said wow mum what a wicked colour, that's pretty cool looking saddle! LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!!! Everything is exactly as I pictured and requested. Thank you so much for your patience during this whole purchase, I have been waiting years to finally have my own Western Saddle and am so glad that I decided on one of your saddles! The quality and workmanship is just outstanding, I will be the envy of all my friends!! You will definitely be getting my recommendation :) Oh and thank you for the extra girth too, not sure if you meant to send it or not! Kind regards

  Graham The saddle looks awesome thanks so much. He looks very handsome in his new breastplate also. The bridle was a nice suprise and it will be way to small for charlies big head but it will definitely fit one of the other horses. Its amazing how differant it feels to the other saddle, and i actually really like that big solid horn. Ive attached a couple of pics And it arrived on my birthday so xtra pleased Heather
  Hi Graham Just a little note to say a big thank you for Mahmoud's saddle. Last weekend we did a 25km competition and today we did the 30km at the faster intermediate speed and came second in our class. Mumu was extremely comfortable in his saddle throughout the ride and I really appreciate the fact that him and I were so comfortable in the saddle from what was such a big ride for us. Everyone still admires the saddle and I proudly tell them it was made locally by your good self. So thank you again so much for helping my horse enjoy a nice comfortable saddle that actually fits him well and helps him move freer. Cheers Anita and Mahmoud :-)
  It's beautiful Graham. A real treasure. I can't wait to take it out on some realy long treks. Fits perfectly and so beautifully adorned with amazing work. Wendy tried it yesterday and loved it too. Caroline
  Hi Graham Just wanted to say thank you so much for our beautiful new saddle... Better than expected - amazing quality and Pippi loves it too.

It is a very treasured item - which lives safely in our house.... Thanks again. Acushla.
