Easy Fit Saddles wants you and your horse to be happy with our products and our service. The research and development we have performed ensure our ability to build a saddle system and customization fit that provides satisfaction for you both. Our team is available to serve you if you have custom fitting questions or concerns.

  1. TERMS & CONDITIONS

All of our saddles are handcrafted by Master Saddlers, built on our in-house custom trees. We utilize only the best quality-tanned leather from tanneries in North America. Leather is a natural product, each hide comes with its own unique scrapes, insect bites, brands and scars. These blemishes can become more prominent after oiling and more evident on some colours than others. Scars are individual “birthmarks”, making every saddle very special and unique. Each hide is different, they absorb dye differently. All veg-tanned leather will likely darken over time due to oiling, use, and exposure to the sun. The delivery time on your saddle is usually 3 to 4 months. Delays in Customs Inspection offices when shipping internationally can easily extend the delivery time you may wait for your saddle. This cannot always be foreseen and is simply out of our control.

  1. PAYMENT POLICY

To put your saddle on our build list, a $1500 non-refundable deposit is required. Once built, full payment is required for any saddle or other products before we will ship the item(s). 

  1. CANCELLATION POLICY

Any saddle & or any other product order may be cancelled by you at no charge within 48 hours of order. If the saddle & or any other product have shipped already, you, the customer, are responsible for round trip shipping costs. The cancelled items must be returned to EFS prior to receiving the refund. Saddle deposits will be refunded within 48 hours of the order if you change your mind. An in-store credit or exchange for alternative saddles may be available.

After expiration of 48 hours, custom saddle and or other custom items orders cannot be cancelled, changed, returned or refunded at any time. Each custom saddle we build has a tree unique to your horse’s measurements. The style, size, colour, conchos and tooling are all unique to your specifications. These items are built specifically for you and your horse so we cannot accept returns. Please contact our customer service team and we will do our best to address your concerns.

  1. RETURN POLICY

You understand that, upon receipt of the saddle or any other product, it will be subject to your inspection and approval. It is your responsibility to inform us and report about damaged, defective items or incorrect shipping within 7 days after you have received our shipment to qualify for a refund, exchange or in-store credit.

The Warranty will be voided if the saddle is not purchased through Easyfitsaddles.com or one of its associates directly.

  1. CLIENT ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

I agree that my order is correct and meets with my specifications. By placing an order, you state that you have read the Buyers Agreement and agree to the terms. Horse activities are inherently dangerous. Easy Fit Saddles and it´s manufacturers, distributors and sellers will not accept any responsibilities for injury, death, damage, lameness or illness resulting from humans and/or horses from the use or misuse of Saddles & Saddle Accessories offered by Easy Fit Saddles.

Easy Fit Saddles are handcrafted utilizing our revolutionary custom fit trees. They are fully guaranteed to be free of defects in workmanship and materials for 5 years from the original purchase date from Easy Fit Saddles and valid only to the new saddle owner (non-transferable).

Warranties are only valid when the saddle has been used in accordance with the particular model's intended purpose. Things that may also affect your warranty are incorrect storage and or improper care. Any saddle presented for warranty replacement/repair will be assessed on a case by case basis to determine cause/origin of the fault in question. Easy Fit Saddles has, at its sole discretion, the option to repair defects or to replace the saddle as we deem fit. Shipping costs (or any taxes) to and from the factory for repairs, not included unless fault has been claimed by Easy Fit Saddles in which case shipping costs will be refunded/paid.

Easy Fit Saddles are known for their rugged durability and beauty as well as their unique function. However, the 5- year Guarantee does not cover service parts attached such as tie-strings, latigos, rear rigging billets, cinch, fenders, hobble straps, stirrups, conchos, seat covering, underside fleece, suede or felt due to the variable amounts of wear and tear that stress these items during use.

If applicable to your saddle model, all leather saddle body parts including seat, jockeys and skirts will be warrantied for 2 years if used in accordance with care/storage instructions. Responsible care of your saddle and all attached parts will assure many years of fine service beyond the warranty expiration date.

PAYMENT POLICY

To put your saddle on our build list, a $1500 non-refundable deposit is required.
Once built, full payment is required for any saddle or accessories before we will ship the item(s).

Placing an Order

Orders for custom-made goods may be placed through the Easy Fit Saddles website order form or a print copy of the same.  A copy of the form will be finalized describing your custom goods and an invoice prepared to itemize your costs.

A $1500 non-refundable down payment is required to be placed on the saddle build list. The aforementioned order form will constitute a binding contract between Easy Fit Saddles Inc. and the purchaser. The $1500.00 down payment is non-refundable. If you cancel your order, your deposit may be applied to in-store credit. The purpose for this down payment is to secure the intent of purchase on the part of the customer and to bind the agreement between Easy Fit Saddles Inc. and the customer. Failure on the part of the purchaser to complete payment for contracted goods within three months of the completion of such shall result in the forfeiture of the initial down payment. This contract shall be considered fulfilled upon exchange of said goods for final payment of the same.

At the time of down payment, the price for said custom goods is to be considered by both parties as set and finalized, and as such, changes in the marketplace affecting the cost of materials, which transpires between the beginning of this contract and the completion of the same, will not affect this agreed upon purchase price.  

Once an order has been submitted and the deposit paid, the customer’s order will be placed on the build list. Once on the build list, it will take 3 – 4 months for the order to be filled. Constraints which affect the manufacturing workflow of Easy Fit Saddles Inc. such as a delay in acquiring materials may affect the manufacturing timeline.  Work may not begin immediately upon receipt of down payment. Work is begun in the order that it is received and when materials are in hand. Any delay imposed by the purchaser, for any reason, of three months or more during this process may result in a breach of contract and forfeiture of down payment.

Payment can be made with cash, personal cheque, e-transfer or money order.  Final payment by cheque must clear at the bank before shipment is made. Any shipping costs shall be the responsibility of the purchaser. All prices quoted on the website are in Canadian dollars. We reserve the right to vary prices without notice.

After delivery, there is a 21 day trial period for a new custom saddle. During the trial period, if any adjustments need to be made the customer is 100% covered. If you are not completely satisfied with your custom saddle any time within the 21 day trial period you may request a refund minus a 10% restocking/refitting fee less the $1000.00 deposit and shipping costs.
