Can’t I just import myself for less?

Unlikely. Our pricing is based on RRP plus freight and import fees. (plus you get to ‘try’ a saddle) You maybe able to import a secondhand saddle but there are tales of saddles being held up in customs and ‘irradiated’ prior to release. Irradiation is very destructive to synthetic – things like the webbing that holds the girths to the saddle tree. Depending on the quality of the webbing this can be a quick or slow disintegration process. None of my saddles are irradiated. I’m not having it on my conscience.
