How to package your saddle to send to us:

There is no need to purchase a new box to send us your saddle you can re use a box providing it is in good condition,heavy duty and of a suitable size. Boxes designed to hold a large volume of light products such as crisps will not stand up to supporting the weight of a saddle and must not be used. ( We suggest contacting your local feed merchant for a strong box alternatively home removal companies may sell heavy duty boxes)
