Jan Timmer – Sales Manager

(English, German, Dutch)

Hi I am Jan Timmer,
I’ve been working with horse since the year 1998, and it is still my biggest passion to work with horses and help their riders to accomplish the most. I think it is important that every horse can do his work for the rider without any pain. That’s why i like working for Ihesta Saddles to be able to deliver an high quality saddle witch is totally custom made for both the rider and the horse.

I am Lia ter Braake. Living in Iceland for almost 2 years. I have Icelandic horses for 15 years. Riding and breeding both. Of course I have my own horse now on Iceland. And then you start for searching for a good saddle. My son is a saddle fitter and maker. So he makes me a good saddle. It fits me and my horse. Through this, I saw how important it is to have a good fitting saddle. Both for rider and horse. And I decided to do the course for Master Saddle Fitting. This starts next year. At this moment I can help you to find a good fitting saddle. I can do some little repairs on your saddle. Next summer I can also do flocking your saddle and more repairs. I represent Ihesta saddles in Iceland. This brand is new for the Icelandic market. It is developed for as much as possible freedom for the horse and rider. The quality is very high.
