BUA SADDLE FIT CONSULTATION ANALYSIS FOR YOUR HORSE
In order for us to fully assist you with help for your Bua saddle fit check, the more information we have on horse and rider details, the better indication of fit possibility we can give you. Getting all this information and images collated and down on paper to us, could take you anything up to an hour, which we trust will be a good investment of your time.
As we mark fit possibility on a points system, for best results we recommend you copy and paste the following into a WORD document and then send us the requested images (it may be easier to send us your images directly to our whatapp number +353834514111) and the completed questionnaire information by email to: email@example.com & our senior fitter will give you our best opinion on Bua Saddle Fit Possibilities for your horse. Fit check Fee - Free for First Horse, and €40.00 per horse for 2nd and 3rd horses.
