View Full Version : Saddle Reflocking - How Much??
7th November 2009, 06:56 PM
My Wintec GP needs reflocking.
I've never had a saddle reflocked before - have the fitter coming out next week. Does anyone have a ballpark figure of what it usually costs?

My local tack top charges a £25 call out fee to check the saddle initially, then if it needs reflocking it's another £40 and they'll come out again, fit the saddle again and adjust the flocking there and then if needed.
I've just had mine refitted today, Zeb goes better, I feel more balanced and she spent ages explaining things to me and answering all my questions. I've learned loads today it was money well spent!

I think for a full flock its quite pricey but for adjustments my saddler is usually around £50 to flock the various bits that need doing

I got mine reflocked for £70 but the guy did come all the way from Birmingham to Cheshire so travel was included but I wanted the saddler who made the saddle to adjust it. Was very interesting watching him as he did it at my yard, came down the field watched Darli being schooled in it to make sure everything was ok.

When I was looking at getting my old saddle done I got quotes for £50 and then a call out charge of between £10 and £30 depending on how far they'd be travelling.
