The North American Saddlery School was started ten years ago in response to discussions with riders and saddle fitters trying to find unbiased education that followed tried principles that resulted in an educated fitting for both horse and rider, not just a sale.

The system follows closely that of the apprentice schemes used in the United Kingdom. It utilizes their professional tutors in the teaching and practical building of saddles, saddle repair, making and fitting, as well as bridle making.

The school provides a complete instructional system that allow pupils to attain their Qualifications in the UK if they so wish.


The research and development course leads students through the process of how ideas, materials and design are tested, developed and marketed.
