​Custom Digital Saddle Advice by Video

ON HIATUS

​IMPORTANT: The Saddle Geek is currently on hiatus and not taking new clients for the ​Digital Saddle Advice Package, effective September 12, 2019. ​Apologies for the inconvenience as Jen the Saddle Geek works through a challenging family situation. She will ​focus available energy on The Saddle Geek's online course, ​The Saddle Savvy Rider, ​which is currently closed for​ new enrollment but will continue rolling out to existing participants.


Thanks for understanding, and Jen wishes you the best in your saddle search.

Tell me if this sounds familiar:

you're overwhelmed with your saddle search.

You're worried about making an expensive mistake.

You're not sure which saddle brands or saddle features make sense for your situation.

And every time you ask a pro for saddle help, it seems like they've got a saddle that they want to sell to you.

Feel like I'm reading your mind? It's because you're not alone: I've heard this same tale from hundreds of my Saddle Geek clients and fans. In fact, messages just like that are how The Saddle Geek was born. 

I'm Jen the Saddle Geek, and I've spent the past 10 years geeking out over 175+ brands of English saddles.  If you've ever had a friend who was a huge car buff--they knew every make and model of car, and all the fancy stats for that car--well, I'm a lot like that, except for dressage, jumping, and all-purpose saddles.

I don't just love saddles: I love sharing what I know with fellow equestrians and the horses they love. And because I don't sell saddles myself, and I don't take kickbacks from saddle brands, I can afford to give honest and straightforward advice.

With my online Digital Saddle Fitting Advice service, you'll get truly brand-independent and custom saddle shopping advice delivered in online video form. In your video, I’ll walk you step by step through…


Your unique fitting challenges for horse and rider

Every rider, horse, and situation is different. I'll use your submitted photos and questionnaire to tailor my advice to your needs, budget, and priorities. That empowers you to make a smart saddle choice for you and your horse.

How different fitters and brands might tackle your unique case

Just as there are different riding disciplines like dressage and hunter/jumper, there are different schools of thought in the saddle-fitting world. In your video walk-through, I'll help you understand how different fitters and brands might assess your situation and propose to fix it. You'll walk away feeling like you understand your options, not like they're flying over your head--and that puts you in the driver's seat to make a smart saddle choice.

Which saddles should be on your must-see list

I'll give you a short list of saddle brands and models that are optimal for your situation. I'll explain why those saddles are stand-out choices for you.


And because I don't sell saddles nor take kickbacks from saddle brands, you're getting my best and most honest advice--the same advice I'd give to a dear barn mate, trainer, or friend.


Here's why you'll love this service:

It's fast

It can take many months--or even years--to complete your own saddle research, schedule appointments with local saddle fitters who turn out to be a "bust" for your budget or needs, buy and resell the wrong saddles, find a saddle that works for 1-2 months and then your horse freaks out...you get the idea.


By contrast, I turn around my Digital Saddle Advice Packages within 7 calendar days of receiving your photos of horse and rider + a written questionnaire about your needs. That way, you can make a plan and start heading in smart directions ASAP.

It puts you in the driver's seat

I want you to feel great about your final saddle choice, whether it's a saddle that I suggest or one you choose yourself. You'll feel more confident about writing that big check, having considered your options and taken the time to really understand your fitting situation and your options.

It reduces your stress and saves you time and money

How much is your time worth? How about your sanity? My goal is to get you riding happily again ASAP--and putting your saddle search in the rear-view mirror. My best-case scenario, and one that I achieve with many clients, is to help you shop faster, spend less money, and get back to riding sooner.

And get this: there's a

100% money-back guarantee.

I'm here to make your saddle search less risky, not more risky. 

So iIf you're not 100% thrilled with your video advice package,

you'll get a prompt and cheerful refund. Yes, really!

Even better, you've got 30 days from the time you receive your video to request a refund. But my guess is that you'll say the same thing my other clients say: "WOW!"

"This sounds amazing. So what's the catch?"

The catch is that I take a limited number of clients at a time, so that I can maintain a 7-day turnaround time.


That's the only catch--and you can get around it by reserving your consult now, so that you're not stuck on a waiting list!


To get your consultation, click the big green "Get my Advice Package" button below. You’ll be directed to The Saddle Geek's checkout page, where you can pay with PayPal or use any major credit card through Stripe. After checkout, check your email for a receipt and instructions for submitting your horse + rider photos and your intake questionnaire. Once I've got your photos and questionnaire, I'll turn around your consultation within 7 calendar days. It's that simple!


So, does this work? Ask my wonderful clients:

Wow! I've learned so much, and I thank you....

There isn't another person out there who can match your knowledge and service. Saddle shopping is not for the faint of heart, or the impatient! But it turned out ok! What a great service, and too bad I didn't find you about 3 months ago. Would have saved me buckets of time and money!

"Oh my gosh - you really ARE the Saddle Geek!"

"And I mean that in the most complimentary, awe-inspiring way ... You are awesome and a wealth of information. What would I do without you?!"

- Lynn from North Carolina, Eventer

Bought an off-the-rack Adam Ellis dressage saddle and a custom Adam Ellis monoflap cross-country saddle

​Jen helped me sort out the seemingly hundreds of possible saddles available....

She knew which ones had a good chance of fitting me, which ones had a good chance of fitting my horse, and which ones could do both. I am truly impressed with the range of knowledge she has about manufacturers, materials, and biomechanics.

- Stacy from Kentucky, bought an 18" CWD SE29 monoflap cross-country saddle

​Thank you SO much for the awesome consultation!

You are amazing! I think you provided a much better saddle fitting than many in-person fitters could provide! YOU ROCK!

- Patti from Florida, bought a 17" Black Country Quantum with the short flap option

Thank you--we all really appreciate the expertise!

I was having trouble pinpointing why my project horse was getting more resistant with increased work. The saddle Jen recommended fit my budget, balances well for me, and made my boy MUCH happier. Even better, her long and patient explanations and training mean I'm a lot more knowledgeable about how a saddle ought to fit, so I'm doing a much better job of adjusting padding to keep my horses comfortable as their back shape changes throughout the competition season.

- Danielle from Ohio, bought a 17.5" Smith Worthington Mystic for foxhunting and trails

​Jen, you are awesome!

Your in-depth analysis of Scarlett, myself, and the potential saddles that you recommended, was incredibly valuable. I appreciate all of your efforts, and the amazing presentation that you provided that talked me through a number of amazing options to consider. I have no doubt that if I decide to go a different direction than Antares, I have a whole slough of different options that would suit my needs.

- Allie from Canada, bought a 17" Antares Connexion

​I got an amazing deal on a much nicer saddle than I thought I could afford...

I approached Jen when I got into eventing and needed a dressage saddle on a graduate student’s budget. Jen was able to give me several suggestions for saddles that would fit both me and my mare, all within my limited budget. I ended up buying a used saddle on Jen’s recommendation, and I couldn’t be happier with it! Two years later, she helped me with a jump saddle too

- Alison from Ohio, bought a 17" Tekna S Line dressage saddle and a 17" Frank Baines Enigma monoflap jump saddle

​I have to say it again, you are amazing.

What a fountain of (fascinating) information. I don't know when I've gotten more 'bang for my buck' with any service, ever, for anything! I'll be recommending you to everyone I know.

- Jane from Iowa, bought a 17" County Innovation XTR with skid row panels

Still not sure, or have some questions?

Here's some Frequently Asked Questions that might help:


I'm a horseless rider / I ride a variety of horses. Can you help me?

I want to fit multiple horses or get multiple saddles. Can you help?

I have a small budget. Can you help me?

My horse and I are a very difficult fit. Can you help us?

​I need help with Western saddles, endurance saddles, racing saddles, etc. Can you help?

Can I still use a local saddle fitter or a brand-affiliated fitter?

Many saddle fitters seem loyal to wool-flocked saddles, or foam-panelled saddles, or [insert any saddle-fitting Kool Aid of your choice here]. Are you a loyalist?

What happens after I get my customized video advice?

I still have questions / my question wasn't listed here.
