Great business. Ann fits saddles, any saddles, to keep the horses (and riders) comfortable and happy. Try it, you'll like it.

I am quite happy with my Barnsby and will not hesitate to contact you for any saddles I may look for in the future. You will also be the first I would suggest to any friends who are considering a new saddle. You truly couldn't have been more helpful, friendly and professional. Thank you.

Mike was thrilled with the saddle fit and said it fits him as though it were custom made for his back. He didn't have to make any adjustments. Thank you once again for all your help through this whole process. You guys have been a joy to work with! If you have a small banner or sign, I will be happy to hang it on Kaylin's stalls at competitions, as well as give out your business cards. Thanks again!

Hi Ann. I had written to you about 2-3 weeks ago asking the length of the Dobert suede reins. You replied, gave me the length and also said that they were back ordered. Said I would order when I got back into town from a business trip. Well, I got back and developed a very bad bronchial infection and totally forgot about the reins. My husband (George) found the "book mark" for Equestrian Imports on my computer and ordered them for me as a get well present. I received them yesterday and rode with them today. They are absolutely the greatest. Showed them to a couple of my riding friends today at the stable and I am sure you will be seeing some orders for more suede reins from the Santa Fe and Lamy, NM area. Just wanted you to know how happy I am with them and so glad I found Equestrian Imports. You will be the first web site I go to when I need something else. Thanks.

Ann & Staff: Thank you for selling my ‘Selecta’ saddle. It makes me happy to think of someone using it.

Hi Ann. I wanted to let you know that I love the saddle and so does my horse. I rode today in a lesson so my trainer could see the saddle on my horse. Sweat marks look great and I have a happy guy. It is almost like the saddle was made for us. Thanks so much!

I will meet Anna Friday at the stables, and give her her new saddle... she's already posted on her Facebook page that she has a new saddle 🙂 Thank you for being so kind and flexible... I hope I can support Anna as she learns to trust her very lovely horse, now seated properly in a well-suited saddle! Again, thank you for what you do... it doesn't clean up oil in the Gulf, but you have two girls or OTTBs who are ready to ride with confidence! Kindest Regards,

Hi there Ann. Thank you so much for all the effort and patience you had with supplying me with a fabulous saddle. I couldn’t be any luckier with the entire situation! I am just THRILLED! Thank you so much !!! It fits like it was specially made for the horse; the first ride we had in it was seamless as if I had the saddle for the last 10 years as it also fits me like a glove. I would like to thank you and your team and Equestrian Imports for being such a wonderful and professional company to liaise with. My initial reservations of dealing and purchasing such an expensive item internationally were completely dismissed after my dealings with you within the first few emails. I could not recommend you more highly enough to anyone else in Australia that is considering buying a saddle or equipment through you. I would be more than happy for you to post this on your website to put any other prospective buyer at ease. Thank you, thank you, thank you again and again.

Ann, I just wanted to send a quick note to (finally) say THANK YOU for the beautiful saddle repair work John did, and for your prompt service. The saddle looks absolutely perfect and I am thrilled! I never expected that both entire flaps were being replaced. Time to go ride in it now!
Kyle H., Oak Park, IL5 Star Website Review
Working with Ann and her staff has been wonderful. I knew that listing my saddle with her would get me the most exposure to equestrians that would be interested in a top tier saddle. I got a very good price and I'm very happy that I listed with Equestrian Imports.
Donna B., Rochester, NY5 Star Website Review
Ann is great! I have been working with her since I moved to B&B equestrian ctrs 2 years ago. Ann was just up and my horse was having issues with his saddle. All I kept thinking before she came is that I would have to get a new saddle again! Well after a bit of figuring things out, Horse is completely happy, I am happy and the fix was very simple. Ann is the best at saddle fitting and will bend over backwards to help you out. She is worth every penny for the consultation. A true professional with a great customer service attitude which is rare in the horse industry. Thank you!!

Ann Forrest is an incredibly knowledgeable saddle fitter. She takes the time to examine the horse without tack and then watches how you place the saddle to insure proper positioning. She then watches you ride, observing how the saddle moves on the horse's back, it's straightness and interferences that might be occurring. After making the necessary adjustments, she again watches the horse move under saddle. If she feels that it is still not correct, it's back to additional adjustments and a relook at the under saddle movement. As well as being thorough, Ann is pleasant and has great insight into how saddle, rider and horse work together.
