Tree

The warranty on Hulsebos saddle trees of dressage, jumping, all purpose, endurance, and icelandic saddles is three years.

Fit

Because of the numerous physical changes a horse and rider experience (i.e. age, physical condition, training, etc), we cannot guarantee a lifetime fit without periodic adjustments. Hulsebos Saddlery recommends having the saddles fitted/adjusted once per year.

In addition, Hulsebos Saddlery advises to use a stool (approximately 60 cm high) when mounting the horse, to avoid unnecessary wear on the tree. This also avoids putting additional pressure on the right side of the horse's withers and flank during mounting. 

Leather

The life span of a saddle is highly dependent on the proper maintenance and care of the saddle. Hulsebos Saddlery advises that you regularly clean and condition all leather goods. The warranty on standard, schrumpf, schneider, and buffalo leather is one year. The warranty on calf leather is half a year. The warranty on wear of stitching or billets is one year.

New Leather Goods

New saddles come with a complimentary jar of Hulsebos leather conditioner. It is advised that new saddles, bridles, and girths be treated frequently (i.e. 4-5 times per week) for the first few weeks. If the leather is dry, conditioner must be applied in a thick layer, allowed to absorb for a half hour, and then polished using a dry, clean cloth. Hulsebos Saddlery does not offer warranty on damaged leather goods due to lack of proper care and maintenance.
