  • Damage resulting from misuse or neglect of the product. (Please insure stitching is checked on a regular basis)
  • Wear to the cosmetic binding under girth straps and leathers is unavoidable with use, it does not affect the use of the saddle.
  • Barefoot saddles are handmade so can vary a little from saddle to saddle. Due to their nature, some creasing of leather around pommel, cantle, kneeroll area is sometimes unavoidable, it is not considered a fault and does not affect the use of the saddle.
  • Cosmetic and appearance changes to the natural leather products are a fact of nature.
  • Leather is a natural product. Scars, darkly pigmented spots, uneveness or variation in colour are all possible and considered normal therefore not considered a fault or covered by any warranty.   
  • Damage to leather due to use of standard leathers or fenders (We recommend the use of Barefoot Leathers or fenders with buckles at bottom)
  • Damage to zips due undue force being used (Please take care when exchanging pommel inserts and ensure inserts are inserted fully before attempting to zip up pommel).

In case of emergencies i.e leathers caught in a gate, undue pressure put on one bar in falls or horse spooking, leathers will not release so might tear off stirrup bar or even worse tear saddle. This is not covered under the warranty.
