Do you buy and sell second-hand saddles?

Yes, we do sell good quality second-hand saddles. We sell second-hand saddles on behalf of our customers for a 25% commission to advertise them on our website. 

If you would like to try some of our second-hand saddles you will need to bring your horse to our yard in Kent for the appointment (BR7 6HA)

I'm afraid we don't sell second-hand synthetic saddles or buy any second-hand saddles directly from our customers

We sell second-hand saddles via our website with free delivery and a two-week return policy

Second-hand saddles are available for export but can't be purchased with our 12-month interest-free finance, this only applies to new saddles over £325.

Do you part exchange saddles?

Yes under the following conditions:

  • If it was originally purchased new from David Dyer Saddles
  • If the saddle is leather and in good condition
  • All part exchanges are at the discretion of management

What to expect from your saddle fitting appointment?

Buying a new saddle is often one of the most significant purchases you make for your horse. Our team of saddle fitters is here to give you the best independent advice and access to the widest selection of saddles brands possible.

What we need:

  • The rider to be fit and ready to ride for the appointment
  • A flat surface where your horse can be secured
  • Either a secure flat field or ideally an arena/school/ménage
  • A clean horse with bridle, girth, stirrups, and saddle cloth (we can provide these if needed)

What we will do:

  • Take a template of your horse's back
  • Examine the horse's back for any soreness, lumps, bumps or cuts
  • Assess the fit of your current saddle, we won't sell you one if you don't need it
  • Shortlist saddles that might work for both horse and rider
  • Watch saddles ridden at a walk, trot, and canter (if appropriate for horse and rider level)
  • If you decide to buy a saddle on the day of the appointment, we will issue you with an invoice and a right to cancel form.

How long does it take:

  • Checking your current saddle usually takes 1 1/2 hours but can take longer, so please leave plenty of time.
  • If you're buying a new saddle from us, please allow at least 2 hours for the fitting apPointment but again it can take longer.
