*SADDLE FOUND* 16" (UK measurement) Wide Fit Side Saddle Wanted

Can you help Ceri, a fellow side saddle rider out?

Side saddle wanted: Any make, 16" seat, wide fit.
To go on a 14.3 Welsh cross with a table back and low withers. Could probably get
away with 15.5" seat but no longer than 16" as horse's back not long enough.
I am 5'3" and a dress size 10-12. At present I have a 16" Champion & Wilton on hire which I can't have altered enough to fit my mare properly.

She has a small hollow in her left shoulder which although its never done either
of us any harm, causes every saddle she has ever worn to slip slightly left,
that's ok astride but not side saddle so I have decided I need to invest in
buying one that I can have fully altered to fit her properly.

Cheri is in the UK, her email address is: cericroot @ (take the space out before and after the @ symbol). If anyone knows of any side saddle or has one for sale, then please could you get into contact with her.


  1. Hi Ceri, I may be able to help you out... I have a Robert jenkins saddle that has been on a 14.1 welsh and a Dales ... It has been used about 6 times.. Ie for fittings of the ponies, 1 lesson and a side saddle Novice class....just this saturday gone... my daughter has decided after all that SS is not for her and wants to give it all up.... I also have a Side Saddle Habit Navy made by Alexander James which cost me £700 and has been worn for 20 mins in the said class...!!!!! I will be looking for about £450 for that..and £2500 ONO for the saddle...i will try and email you off here but if you could contact me on Facebook you can see all the pics of the saddle and my daughter in her habit ... she is 5ft3 also maids 34" sizing!

  2. I have a friend that has a wide fit Whippy, I will contact her and get the info on the seat size and how much she wants for it. It is located in Canada and I'm not sure how much shipping would be but could find out!

  3. Hi Michelle,
    That would be great, thanks!

  4. Hello, I hope this isn't rude to ask, but how much was that side saddle surcingle?
