Patchwork Saddlery, LLC is a family-owned business specializing in saddle fitting, flocking and repairs of all brands of English saddles.
Owner/operator, Heidi Lemke is an independent saddle
fitter, not employed by any specific brand or saddle company. There are
several benefits to using an independent saddle fitter to fit your
Unbiased Opinion: The entire focus during your saddle fitting
consultation is to provide you with an unbiased opinion of how your
saddle fits you and your horse while doing as much as reasonably
possible to work with your existing saddle. If this is not your best
option, other recommendations will be made.
Access to Several Brands: For customers looking for a new saddle, I
stock inventory in several different saddle brands, tree designs and
models. The advantage to this is that finding the right saddle for the
particular horse and rider is not limited to one brand. Consideration
can be given to which brand, model, tree or panel design would be the
best choice for the particular horse and rider. To assist you in your
saddle search, I have several demo saddles that are available to take
for a test ride.
Knowledge: The training involved in becoming an independent saddle
fitter is lengthy and is based on fitting and flocking techniques
aligned with bio-mechanics and horse anatomy.
