Julie is a talented saddle fitter who has the ability to work with a wide variety of saddles, horses and people. She is thorough and professional but also has an intitive sense about what will work for each combination. She can make a marked improvement in the comfort for both horse and rider in a relatively short period of time. I am a trainer with diverse group of riders in my program, many of whom are on a budget, and Julie works equally well with them all regardless of the breed of horse or the brand of saddle.

Julie was able to make proper adjustments and what a difference! My position is better and my horse is noticeably more comfortable. I also purchased two of her Grandeur pads, on for jumping and one for dressage. They allow for inserts, keep the saddle from slipping forward and provide amazing protection for the spine ..

Julie made every effort to make sure we bought the best fitting saddle for our horse and rider. She came out numerous times to make sure the fit was perfect. It made our saddle buying experience a pleasure. I would highly recommend Julie's service and will use her again in the future. Thank you Julie! Katya Garcia (pony club mom)
Julie Lobban recently flocked two of my trilogy dressage saddles. As I am a trainer these saddles get used on a wide variety of horses so flocking them includes evening out the panels and flocking up areas that have compressed. Julie did a wonderful job and my saddles are sitting level on the horse's backs again! She also gave me some wonderful advice regarding wrapping my saddle racks to keep my panels healthier. I would recommend Julie's skills to anyone needing their saddles flocked or correctly fitted.
