Patrick Wilkinson has been serving Yorkshire horses and riders for more than 30 years!
Established in 1988 and steeped in tradition Patrick’s business has an unrivalled reputation for both the widest range of saddles and accessories, and offering expert advice on the best solution for horse and rider combinations.
In July 2018, Patrick is breaking the mould of the traditional “tack shop” retail outlet, by launching a bespoke saddle fitting experience for his clients. This includes a showroom environment that boasts a superb range of 450 saddles for every discipline, offering customers the widest choice in the area, as well as superb facilities for ridden assessments, to allow them time to trial the saddles, and benefit from the years of experience and advice that Patrick has to offer.
“Its important that I can offer a full fitting service which involves a thorough ridden assessment with my customers, as well as plenty of choice with top quality saddles, and I believe the range that I have on offer gives my customers just that.”
Patrick trained as a saddle fitter at Roy Mangan Saddlery, Stow on the Wolds, and Horse Requisites, Newmarket. He is a fully qualified Society of master saddlers saddle fitter, so his experience and knowledge is paramount to ensuring the best experience for the riders of Yorkshire. Not only is Patrick experienced in traditional saddle fitting across a wide range of brands and conformations, he is also experienced with innovative systems like the Easy Change Fit Solution and CAIR cushion system, found within the increasingly popular Bates and Wintec brands. His new facilities boast a full sized arena with excellent surface, a fully operational workshop on site, and the purpose built showroom which offers his clients the widest range, and best selection of saddles on the market.
Patrick Wilkinson prides himself on finding the right saddle for every horse and rider combination.
