Lindsey Kahn is a lifelong equestrian based in St. Paul, Minnesota. She is dedicated to helping fellow riders find saddles to help them achieve their goals without sacrificing the comfort of their beloved horses. As a rider and horse owner, she has experienced first-hand the harmful effects of poor saddle fit on a horse’s performance and health, which sparked her passions for saddle fitting and County saddles.
Lindsey completed the extensive training provided by the Master Saddlers Association and is proud to be the exclusive County Saddlery representative for the state of Minnesota. Her training enables her to balance a rider’s seat, compensate for a horse’s asymmetry, and improve overall equine movement and performance through proper saddle fit.
Lindsey has been involved with horses since 1991. She holds equal loves for trail riding and eventing, and grew up schooling Western pleasure, games, and lower-level dressage. Today, Lindsey competes her Connemara/Thoroughbred mare Seoul Sister (“Firefly”) at Novice level in eventing, explores trails with her Rocky Mountain gelding Amigo’s Gray Hawk (“Griffin”), and enjoys watching her Irish Sport Horse fillies Flagmount’s Phoenix (“Roku”) and WL Touch Of The Hops (“Hops”) discover the world.
When she isn’t fitting saddles or riding, Lindsey enjoys drawing, traveling, good food, and loud music. She also developed the innovative Do Or Do Knot Rope Halters, which are custom made to fit each horse with options such as snap attachments, breakaways, and various colors and styles.

About County Saddles
County Saddlery, Inc. is based in Woodbine, Maryland with saddle craftsmanship taking place at their factory in England. Resisting the trend toward cheaper production methods using foam rubber panels and plastic trees, County Saddles continue to be handmade on laminate beechwood trees covered in the world’s finest leather, with pure wool-flocked panels to maximize your horse’s comfort and fit.
County Saddlery’s traditional methods take longer and require a higher degree of craftsmanship, but once you sit in a County, Lindsey is confident you will agree that the results are clearly worth it. Although County makes custom saddles for many of the world’s leading riders, their commitment to quality and detail is reflected in every saddle they make, including the one they will make for you. If interested in trying a County saddle, Lindsey has an extensive set of demo saddles that you can try at your location.
