How to try a saddle Gaston Mercier
Book your test ride
Find your saddle
The choice of a saddle is not improvised.
It is a patient and measured process. We discuss together in order to select and/or manufacture the equipment adapted to your horse/rider couple as well as to your practice.
As riders ourselves, we understand your expectations and your questions and we are committed to providing you with a personalized service according to your needs:
A 10 day trial saddle
) If you would like to take the time to try one of our saddles, we offer you the opportunity to receive a trial saddle. You will be able to use it in real conditions for several days while benefiting from a follow-up from one of our GM experts.
For this option, we work together following an established procedure including photos/videos and a measurement sheet. We then select a saddle to send you for a 10-day trial period. This will allow us to determine the characteristics of your future saddle, or to validate the purchase of a used or demo saddle.
A home visit of a Gaston Mercier technician
You would like to meet with one of our representatives in order to test saddles while being accompanied.
At GM, we understand that some of our customers prefer to have an expert come to their "home", which is why we also offer this service. With this paying option, a Gaston Mercier technician comes to your home in order to let you try our saddles and receive a clear expertise report for your next saddle order.
