Meet The Team


Safe and Sound Saddle Fit was formed in 2016 and has grown to be one of the Midwest’s most trusted names in tack fitting. We are proud to be a woman-owned, Minnesota-based small business. We are passionate equestrians and strongly believe in the importance of education, safety, and collaboration. We are here to answer questions and help you find tack that fits you and your horse.

Our commitment to your horse’s comfort and wellbeing shines through in our work, whether it’s helping you find the ideal custom or pre-owned saddle, or bringing new life to your well-loved tack. We believe in top-quality products that combine traditional materials with innovative, advanced designs.
