Services at Wadswick Country Store
Hat & Body Protector Fitting
We have a large and diverse range of hat and protective riding equipment at Wadswick. Several of our staff members are fully qualified to help fit these items for you.
Our fittings operate on a walk-in basis. When you arrive at the store, please make your way upstairs to our Equestrian Safety Zone. Please note that due to the length of time fittings can take, the last fittings of the day will be at 4pm (3pm on Sundays and Bank Holidays).
We recognise that for many people and many reasons, hat and body protector fitting can be difficult. Our fitting areas can get busy so if you feel you would benefit from a quieter or longer service, we would recommend visiting during the week when the shop is quieter. If you have any specific requirements, please do let us know in advance by calling the shop on 01225 810700 and we will reserve a private appointment for you.
Covid-19: All fittings will be Covid compliant. We ask that all customers please wear a mask for their fitting and wash/sanitise their hands. Our staff will of course do the same.
Several of our staff are qualified to advise and sell Equine and Companion Animal wormers to you in store. Please ask at the counter and we will find a qualified member of staff to help you.

Horse Feed Advice
We have two qualified Saddlers at Wadswick. Chris, a Master Saddler, and Charlotte, our Saddle Fitter.
You are welcome to arrange an appointment with Charlotte to come to you and check your saddle or she can bring some saddles to you for trying and purchase.
Charlotte manages her own diary so you can contact her directly.
Contact Charlotte – Saddle Fitting:
September 2021 update: Please note that Charlotte will soon be going on maternity leave and her diary is now looking very full. During this time, we advise that you take a look at the Society of Master Saddlers website to find other local qualified saddle fitters.
Chris Harper is able to adjust saddles and carry out repair work but he does not usually visit yards for general saddle fitting.
