What Our Clients Say

Just had my second chunky monkey saddle made for my other very fussy awkward mare, Once again Sam has done a fantastic job working just off of templates and photos she’s managed to get both saddles spot on and now we have two very happy mares and one very secure happy rider! I can not recommend these saddles enough, thank you Sam!

I've recently bought a freedom jump for my awkward Connie x warmblood - I've had him for nearly 5 years and often been told that nothing off the peg will fit him and how odd he is! I msgd Sam with some pictures of him and what I wanted as had been struggling to jump and sit to him in a straight cut saddle as a last ditch attempt to find something suitable. Basically I couldn't be happier, the saddle that arrived was only 1/4 of a width out and it's beautifully soft with supportive blocks! I'm sure that if he hadn't been out of work for nearly a month in between the pictures being sent and receiving the saddle that it would have been bang on. I was a bit wary ordering at first as knew that I was too far away for Sam to check it personally but she assured me that it could be changed if it wasn't suitable and was very helpful. Thank you, can't wait to get out jumping in it! Pictures to follow.

This saddle allows free movement in the shoulder area for your horse. Can’t stress enough the difference it has made to myself and my beloved cob. Just wish I’d had one sooner.

Would just like to thank Samantha Rhodes at Chunky Monkey Saddles for such a beautiful saddle. It fits like a glove and is lovely to ride in.

You are exceptional in your field of work and I can't recommend you enough.

He's such an odd shape to fit a saddle to yet you managed it with ease.

If anyone has a hard to fit horses I highly recommend saving those extra few pennies and having Sam out to do your saddle. You really won't be disappointed and neither will your horse.

Thank you so very very much.
