About us

Sister’s Saddlery is owned and operated by the mother – daughter duo of Michelle and Molly.

Sister’s Saddlery is an online store, owned and operated by the mother-daughter duo of Michelle Rose-Clealand and her daughter Molly. The saddlery was inspired by the desire to have top quality equestrian gear affordable and accessible to every rider.

In an already expensive sport, gear is becoming more and more unaffordable with the prices of trendy brands being exponential. At Sister’s Saddlery we work to import good quality, practical and well performing gear, both new and second-hand into New Zealand from the UK and US. This beautiful equipment is made by fantastic craftsmen and has been immaculately created and cared for. By selecting top quality tack, regardless of brand we are able to keep pricing affordable so that every rider is able to enjoy our sport.

We stock saddles, bridles, cleaning products, accessories and so much more to come.

Michelle is also a saddle fitter and flocker, having worked independently and also as a contract fitter to some of New Zealand’s leading companies such as NSC. She is also able to adjust CAIR saddles, such as Bates. With years of experience and knowledge to share, Sister’s Saddlery has the added benefit of being able to match the right saddle to the right horse and rider. Michelle’s aim to help create happy and healthy combinations. Knowing the huge effect a saddle can have on a both horse and rider performance she is dedicated to offering the support required to fit and maintain well performing equipment.

While Sister’s Saddlery is an online store, Michelle and Molly are based in the Bay of Plenty, under Mt Edgecumbe on a gorgeous lifestyle block with a full-size arena at their disposal. This is a fantastic asset as Michelle is able to provide her saddle fitting services year-round. The duo are keen hunters and trekkers, as well as being a dressage enthusiasts. Mitch also runs weekly fun days for both adults and kids at her arena, and is also the owner of a much loved New Zealand product, Courage My Love, an all natural leather dressing.
