Check out Citori Saddles feedback on Trademe

Have had my Citori D`oll dressage saddle for a few months now and am absolutely delighted with it. My 16 y o TB is happier and more co operative than with his previous GP . My instructor has commented that he is moving better than before, and it is good for me also as it is the correct fit for me as well and puts me naturally in a better position. It`s also very comfortable out hacking and trail riding . Thanks, Anthea, for your help and support :-)

My EXTREMELY wide and dippy-backed andalusian x stationbred finally has a dressage saddle that fits (him and me)! After years of ill-fitting saddles Anthea and Citori came to the rescue! It has required a lot of effort on the part of both Anthea and Graeme (saddler) to get the perfect fit, including fitting new panels to mould to the dip and about 3 repacks and numerous re-assessments at no extra cost. I now have a horse with even muscling on his back too. I cannot recommend Anthea more highly.

I purchased a beautiful Fenmore Koru dressage saddle 18months ago. This saddle has improved my position and most pleasingly the muscle wasting my mare had has vanished with such a super fit. Was so impressed with Anthea’s knowledge i have since purchased a Citori jump/event saddle which makes me feel super secure and my sensitive mare is jumping with ease.

Anthea was fantastic to deal with. She brought the saddle down to us within a few days and gave us lots of really good advice on the fitting. My daughter is really happy with the saddle and can’t wait to do her first competition with it. Angela

Anthea is top notch in her advice and knowledge of saddles and horses. She gives a lot every time she visits, is always on time, and cares about our progress. I’d thoroughly recommend her and the Citori saddle is perfect.

A friend put us in touch with Citori when we were having a nightmare trying to find a saddle to fit our ponies. Anthea has been fantastic in helping to get a fit that works for both ponies and rider. Great follow up service as well!!! Highly recommended!!!

I can’t recommend Anthea highly enough. Her professionalism, knowledge and genuine caring about me and my horse have been invaluable. Thank you Anthea, for a happy horse and great saddle

Can’t fault Anthea’s service!Very knowledgeable and clear in communicating that knowledge to a novice rider.Good communication when organising the appointment, as she tries to accommodate everyone and make things work.Turned up when she said she would and got straight into it! She thoroughly assessed the horse and had the patience to analyse 2 of my current saddles and make them work 4 now!Anthea totally sold me on Citori saddles with logical and thorough explanations but was not pushy at all.

Was in despair a few years ago , things had not been going well and I had booked Anthea on recommendation of a friend. Then I got bucked off on the road 2 weekends in a row, fortunately, she turned up shortly after and very quickly assessed the situation and which saddle, towels etc were required, and encouraged me not to sell the horse yet! The St Lourdes GP was the right one for us and things have steadily improved, no more bucking, happy horse, and his back is a much better shape. :-)

I can’t say enough about the superb knowledge and solution Anthea has had with both my horse and me, without a correct saddle fitting with Citori I would never have got to where I am today with a new horse and understanding her shape and comfort. Yay for Anthea, and I absolutely love my St Lourdes eventing saddle. Horse and rider both feel very special.

Great service. Since Anthea fitted my new Citori saddle my horse is so much more free in his shoulder. He feels like a different horse and has so much more ping in his trott. Now we can start to build some muscle. Anthea’s after sales service is great. Thanks so much for your time and expertise, Anthea.

Fabulous service from Anthea. Does a thorough job, fully explains throughout the saddle fitting process. I would not hesitate to recommend Antheas saddle fitting and the Citori saddles. All my horses do very well in Antheas saddles, nice toplines no muscle wastage and will stand still for their saddles. I wont use anyone else as the proof is in the pudding. I have happy horses. I would recommend anyone to use Antheas saddling system.

Anthea is very knowledgeable and she provided me with the perfect saddle for my big crossbred that I was having trouble getting a saddle to fit. Anthea stays in touch and her after sales service is second to none in my estimation, and believe me I am extremely picky and a sales persons worst nightmare! Well Done Anthea and see you soon!

Yet another glowing review. Anthea travelled the length of the country to extend her saddle fitting service that she provides with every saddle she sells, even though in this case I only bought a cheaper well loved saddle. She was endlessly patient and extended her wealth of knowledge irrespective of whether she was going to make a sale. I can’t recommend her or her saddles enough. Thank you Anthea.
