Meet the Team
My name is Victoria Delasalle and I am the founder of Delasalle Saddlery!
Having grown up with horses, I have a strong passion for their wellbeing and show this through my work.I am SMS Qualified saddle fitter and have saddle flocking qualifications. I pride myself on working closely with other professionals and experts such as your vet or physio to ensure both yourself and your horse have the confidence to go ahead and perform at your best in whatever your chosen discipline.
My name is Ellie Delasalle and I am currently in training to become a saddle fitter. I have flocking qualifications and carry out all of the repairs, strip and re-flocking of saddles and even make my own leather products such as belts, bags etc.
I have ridden and worked with horses all of my life and I’m looking forward to making the most of this opportunity given to me by my mum, Vicki!

“We had our first visit from Victoria on Monday and she is great.
She really managed to squeeze my horse in between her busy schedule which was great. Very knowledgeable and knows her job, she will explainyou every little detail if your saddle doesn't fit and helps you understand what's best for your horse.
nothingtroubles her, Victoria provides great and friendly mannered customer service.
For me 10/10really looking forward to the next appointment so my horse can finally be comfortable and move free without any discomfort.”

“Can not recommend Victoria enough.
She is kind, funny and knows her stuff.
I suffer with anxiety but without her knowing this made my experience so enjoyable and was a pleasure to be with.
I was booked for March but due to changing circumstances she made all the effort to fit me in early on short notice!
I needed one of my saddles reflocked and it was done the next day.
I have an Arab and saddlers I have tried in the past have been put off by this but Victoria has so much experience with them and took her for how she is in temperament and conformation. To know that both ponies are comfy and happy in their ridden work is a load taken off my mind. If by any reason she can’t fit you in short notice she is worth the wait!
A big thank you!”

“Vicky has the best eye for saddle fitting I've experienced in a long time. She has a patient and calm approach when fitting a wide variety of horses and she is very precise in reading both horse and rider's needs. My ponies have never felt better!”
