The Team

The Aiken Tack Exchange Team are all lifelong equestrians who understand the needs of our customers and consignors.

We appraise saddles, prepare saddles for the sales floor, photograph saddles for online listing, package saddles for trial and purchase all over the country, match riders and horses to well fitting saddles, advise customers on appropriate attire for showing and everyday riding, and are dedicated to continuing our own education. 

When not at the store, we play in many rings and wear many hats ranging from foxhunting to managing a performance horse breeding program to playing in the sandbox with dressage. Whether you own/lease or take lessons, have owned horses your entire life or are new to the horse world, we are here to help you find what you need!

Aiken Tack Exchange owner, Arielle Ostrov is an Independent Certified Saddle Fitter with years of experience in saddle fitting, appraisals, and selling saddles of all brands and styles worldwide.

Her encyclopedic knowledge of brands, styles, and types allows her to match horses and riders to their perfect saddle.
