Here at Highland Saddles,


Saddle fitting in a way that combines science, experience and feel, such that both horse and rider are comfortable, balanced and able to work in synergy with one another. We are passionate about listening to the horse and what their behaviour indicates about their comfort, both on the ground and under saddle. We strive to eliminate tension, resistance, soreness and atrophy by accurately assessing the horses shape at rest and at work to ensure we match them with the appropriate brand and model of saddle to suit their individual needs.

We believe that integrity


Of any good working relationship and as such, we are and will always remain without any official brand affiliations. It’s important that we are able to offer any brand of saddle a customer may require, as the needs of one are often quite different from the needs of another. We are happy to offer a large selection of used Saddles but also a variety of new custom options including: Equipe, Frank Baines, Lovas Equestrian, KenTaur, Ikonic, and Ideal to name a few.

Our goal is to educate riders about saddle fit and the issues that poor fit can cause. In doing so, we provide our clients with as much knowledge as we can to help them understand the process and work towards the happiest, healthiest horse possible.

Testimonials from our customers

We believe that nothing speaks more about a company than the words of its customers.

My experience with Highland Saddle/Katrina was phenomenal. Katrina was so knowledgeable about saddle fit and explained everything thoroughly to me. She found the perfect saddle for my hard to fit thoroughbred and the difference in his attitude toward saddling is incredible! He moves so much more freely with his new saddle. There was never any pressure from her to purchase, she never rushed me and answered all of my questions. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone that needs help with saddle fitting! Thank you so much Katrina!

Katrina was a life saver for my saddle fitting issues. She was able to get me set up with what I needed and find a new home for my old saddles really quickly! I would highly recommend getting her to help with any saddle fitting or consignment - she's the best!

My hubby and I recently bought our CWD saddles from Katrina. Not only is she professional, knowledgable and friendly but most of all patient. She took the time to ensure that our saddles did not just fit us but our multiple horses... You hear that a good saddle can change your ride, I had no idea how much until now. My leg/ seat positioning has changed drastically making for a more efficient ride and happy horses... We were even lucky enough from this experience to score Katrina as our coach! Thank you for everything!
Tracy Mechbach
Katrina is highly knowledgable in getting the "perfect" fit saddle for horse and rider. I highly recommend her!! She goes above and beyond to fulfill the needs of her clients, me being one! It's just not another sale with Katrina. She genuinely cares for horse and rider and respects that we all can't afford to have $5000 saddles. She will take her time finding that perfect fit within the budget. I can honestly say, Katrina is one of the most honest, caring, reliable, knowledgable (in many areas) people I know! She always has the best interest of the horse and rider and I love her for that! When I've had any When I've had any concerns or questions, Katrina has always been available to help me.

I found Katrina after purchasing a used saddle that ended up not fitting my horse, she helped me sell my saddle and find one that worked for both me and my gelding and I couldn't be more happy. Thanks again for your help Katrina!!!

I recently purchased a saddle from Katrina. She was very professional and spent an amazing amount of time ensuring the my saddle fit perfectly. Her high level of knowledge was obvious. I loved how she took her time with my horses and ensured they were comfortable and relaxed to get the best possible fit.

Katrina is absolutely amazing. I inquired about finding a saddle with her and not even 48 hours later she found one. Stuck with me through the entire process and still keeps in touch to insure my saddle is still perfect for my horse and I. Highly recommend her!
Ashley Empey
Katrina made the process of finding a saddle for my hard to fit boy, so easy. she did everything possible to make him and myself comfortable. With her help, my horse and I are jumping courses with out turning issues like we used to have. He's happy and it was the best experience I have had with a saddle fitter.
Hannah Riach
Couldn't be more thrilled with the service and purchase with Katrina! She brought out at least a dozen saddles to the barn and conducted a thorough fitting for the horse. After weeding out the ones that didn't fit, we then moved on to what was right for me. I tried 4 saddles, often swapping back and forth to pinpoint the exact match. She did not try to exceed my budget, never was there any sense of rushing or sales pressure- she took time to explain every saddle, it's features and benefits, why it might work and assessed my position and seat under saddle. Not only is she an expert in her knowledge of the saddle but an absolute pleasure to deal with, plus I learned quite a bit about my horses conformation and back in the process! I would highly recommend/brag about my experience to anyone looking for a saddle on the island!!
Sasha Laurin
Katrina was extremely friendly and helpful in assisting me with finding a saddle to fit my challenging to fit mare and my issues also. I learned a lot about the CWD saddles in particular. Not once did I feel pressured to buy any of the saddles, regardless of brand or that we were on some sort of time limit that day. As it was, I ended up with a saddle that both my horse and I love thanks to Katrina!
Nicole Gibby
Katrina is absolutely amazing at saddle fitting. She's in it for all the right reasons: all about the comfort of the horse and rider. She is such a life saver for myself and my super hard to fit OTTB. Before, we couldn't canter without him throwing a fit and bucking but now that we have a saddle that fits us both, my gelding is so much happier and hasn't bucked since. Katrina is super easy to talk to and will work within your budget with what you and your horse needs. I will always recommend her when I hear about someone who's searching for a saddle. She is fantastic!

Katrina took all the stress and concern out of finding a saddle that fit our mare. She is VERY knowledgeable and caring. She spent three hours with us making sure that everything was perfect. Thank you again Katrina. Moving forward, please consider us long term clients.

Katrina is amazing at finding the 'perfect' saddle for you and your horse. You can finally go riding and be comfortable in the saddle, plus she finds amazing deals for saddles. She is also great at selling a saddle you need 'out of your hair.' I had two saddles that she sold in just a few weeks, and she found the perfect saddle for my 'hard fitting' horse. She is fantastic to deal with, and makes 'saddle shopping' way less stressful. I strongly recommend her for everyone in the 'horsey' community!!

Julie Reid
After a few months of trying to sell my own saddle on Vancouver Island/through Facebook groups ect I had no luck. Katrina came to the house picked up the saddle and had it sold in less than two weeks!!! She was very professional from her sales contract to the prompt payment in my hand within 24 hours of my saddle being sold. I highly recommend her business. If fact she's picking up one of my clients saddles that's been on the shelf to sell some time this week!!! I'll let you know how that goes. Thanks Katrina

I have been looking for a saddle for 4 months, done 5 trials, and finally Katrina saved the day. Her knowledge of fitting and caring about her work is exceptional! I will be referring and using Katrina for all saddle purchases. Also, her prices are great!!!
Jill Narstrom
Katrina is super professional and helpful. I have nothing but good things to say about the process of selling my saddle through Highland Saddles. I had a new saddle that I was eager to sell, and she helped me sell it quickly within the 4 month contract that we had. She answered all my questions in a timely fashion and kept me in the loop the entire time. If I ever have to sell another saddle, I would definitely do it through her again. Thank you so much!!!
