About Saddle4You

Sue Rudler Saddle4You New Zealand

Founded 18 years ago by Sue Rudler, Saddle4You provides quality riding equipment to passionate horse riders and cares deeply about finding the perfect fit for both rider and horse. With our 'Made to Measure' Harry Dabbs and Jefferies Pony Saddle Ranges at competitive pricing, we are committed to helping our customers find the right saddle for them. We like to work closely with our clients on an ongoing basis, and we're certainly not in the business to just sell saddles. We work on a 'quality not quantity' basis and work hard to educate our clients so that they understand the how and why the saddle fits, or not!


Our mission is to provide comfortable, safe saddles that create an enjoyable riding experience for every rider and their horse or pony, with expert saddle fitting, superior quality products and exceptional service.

Meet our team of Saddle Fitters


Founder and South Island Fitter, Marlborough based

Sue Rudler Saddle4You

I have been working as a saddle fitter for nearly 20 years now - looking at horse and rider in a holistic way. I really enjoying working with well respected FEI / Olympic level Vets, Manual therapists, Farriers, Osteopaths & Massage therapists, trainers and other saddle fitters at the top of their professions, we have to look at the horse as a whole – it's a constantly changing being! 

Personally, I trained as a BHSII, until moving to Marlborough was a List 4 Dressage Judge - but I am riding more now! I competed in the UK to Intermediate Horse Trials, Foxhunter level Show Jumping, and worked in both Eventing & Showjumping and Hunting and racing yards in the UK before moving to New Zealand 23 years ago.


I now have 2 Dressage Horses, both by Anamour, competing at level 3 and one training level 5.

 I have many years experience as an Energy Healer & with Aromatherapy for horses, I love exploring natural ways of helping our beloved horses.


North Island Fitter, Raglan based

Vanessa Saddle Fitter Saddle4You

After a number of years working with us in the Waikato / Raglan area, Vanessa has unfortunatley had to resign from working with the harder physical saddle fitting for health reasons, but has found a great alternative with Solutions Treeless saddles, which are lightweight & do not require heavy equipment & flocking etc. This will help her alot moving forward. We wish her the best for a new venture & will also have a Solutions Dressage Saddle available to try for interested clients.
