*In order to receive a complimentary initial fit evaluation after purchasing a new/pre-owned County saddle through Safe and Sound Saddle Fit, or after having a Complete Flocking Replacement or Panel Conversion from foam/air to natural wool, your appointment must be scheduled within 2 months of receiving your saddle (travel/delivery fees only apply). Initial fit evaluations scheduled after 2 months are subject to the standard Fit Check & Partial Flocking Adjustment fee plus travel.
**As the Virtual Fit Evaluation is not performed on-site, we can offer a generalized evaluation of the saddle’s fit and suitability based on visual observations, as well as recommendations for adjustments, pad and/or girth options, or alternative saddle models/sizes if the saddle is deemed a poor fit for horse and/or rider. We cannot guarantee the fit and/or soundness of a saddle based solely on visual observations, and recommend in-person appointments for more thorough, accurate methods of assessing saddle fit using Master Saddlers Association standards.
