Came across the Jeffries “Falcon” brand http://www.ejeffries.co.uk/c/saddles_falcon and think it might be a really good candidate for my mare.
That led me to other boards which led me to other brands - namely the other Jeffries saddles, Ideal, and Frank Baines.
That being said, so far the only used Falcons I can find are in the UK. Which, with the current exchange rate, aren’t too pricey.
I’m trying to work with a saddler fitter here in the states but haven’t had much luck hearing back from her. Unfortunately in Ohio there aren’t any saddle fitters around (Saddles101 is though but it would be $$$ to have her out, based on pricing list) and I want to make sure I can work with someone who has creds or references and can re-flock. So I’m fine taking my own wither and back tracings, pictures, and videos. I’ve worked with Trumbull Mountain before with success so there’s that to fall back on.
I can’t find any Jeffries stockists in the states from the Jeffries website. I googled and searched and came up with nothing also. But I’ve read threads where people rave about their Jeffries, Ideal, Frank Baines, and Falcon saddles, so I know these sellers/fitters HAVE to exist!
Any leads would be great. I know of ebay and I’ve got notifications on for at least 15 different Facebook groups.
