Saddle Trial Policies

For our local shoppers, trials are easy!


 Simply come in and select a few saddles to try on your horse. We will have you fill out a credit card authorization form, and a "break it, you buy it" form. You will have three business days to decide if the saddle is a good fit for you and your horse.

Saddle trials are 3 business days long, If the trial extends over the days that we are closed (Monday and Tuesday), those days will not counted towards the three day trial. If you can not return the saddle within the trial period, you must inform Behind the Barn  as soon as possible to try to work out an extension. There is no guarantee that we will be able to grant an extension.

The buyer understands that the staff at Behind the Barn Consignment -Tack & Supply-  are not certified saddle fitters. Behind the Barn Consignment -Tack & Supply-  is unable to guarantee that a saddle taken on trial will fit the buyer's horse. Behind the barn -Tack & Supply- will do their best to guide the buyer in selection of a saddle. However, it is up to the buyer to determine if the saddle correctly fits the horse and rider. The buyer is strongly encouraged to work with a trainer and/or a certified saddle fitter.
