Delivery and payment terms

These delivery and payment conditions are part of the General Conditions of:

TIBO Equestrian, Poligono 27, parcela 5, partida fraca, 46600, Alzira, Spain. +34682521260. tiboequestrian@gmail.com. VAT: B98949233

Delivery

A personally tailored saddle will be delivered within 8 weeks after the fitting date (with the exception of holiday periods, in which case the term can be longer), unless otherwise discussed between the client and TIBO Equestrian. An appointment with date and time of delivery will be made by e-mail or telephone. In case of delay of delivery, reported by the customer, due to illness of the horse or rider, TIBO Equestrian will ask for a deposit of 50% of the purchase amount.

The saddle will be delivered properly fitting by TIBO Equestrian.

Appropriate advice for maintenance will be given on site.

However, TIBO Equestrian cannot guarantee a permanent fit. A horse’s back can change due to all kinds of circumstances. TIBO Equestrian advises clients to have the saddle checked once a year.

Flocking

The flocking will settle down naturally and requires re-balancing. On purchasing a new saddle it is recommended to be checked and re-balanced after approximately 12 weeks dependent upon the use of saddle.

The best saddle fit has been done to your (old or new) saddle on your horse. However, the flocking on your new saddle will settle as your horse can change over time. The season, age, training method, injuries, change in environment; eg livery yard/stabling, feeding regime, medication may be of substantial influence to the day to day well-being of your horse. That is why we advise that you check your horse yourself regularly for pain, discomfort and weight, and to have your saddle fit checked periodically. We recommend having the saddle fit checked once a year. This can help you and your horse ride in comfort and with confidence.

If you choose to use a different saddle on your horse, or use the saddle which was sold by TIBO Equestrian on another horse (without it being checked by us) we accept no responsibility for any subsequent issues which may arise.

Please note that if you fail to observe the recommendations and advice given at the time of the original fitting of a new saddle /re-flocking of a new saddle /flocking of an existing saddle, we cannot be held responsible for any issues which consequently arise concerning any injuries or issues to the horse, saddle, rider or third parties.

Temporary provision of saddle (in extreme exception)

If TIBO Equestrian provides a saddle to replace a saddle that is taken into repair, to bridge the period until the delivery of a sold saddle, or otherwise, this will be done either on loan or under rental, such as by TIBO Equestrian to be determined when making that available. Ownership of the rental saddle remains with TIBO Equestrian. To this end, an agreement is drawn up and signed by the client and TIBO Equestrian.

The saddle is made available for the period up to the delivery of the saddle sold by TIBO Equestrian or the return of the repaired saddle, unless stipulated otherwise at the time of making available, without prejudice to the provisions below.

TIBO Equestrian is in all cases entitled at all times to terminate the provision without stating reasons.

The person to whom the saddle is made available is liable for all damage to, and loss or theft of, the saddle, all this as stated in the rental / loan agreement.

Upon termination of the availability, the saddle must be returned to TIBO Equestrian without delay, in the condition it was in at the time it was made available. If TIBO Equestrian has received a deposit when it is made available, this must be repaid at the same time as the saddle is returned, after deduction of the amount by TIBO Equestrian for the damage caused to the saddle during the availability. Damage is also understood to mean the costs of returning the saddle to the condition it was in when it was made available, regardless of whether that condition was better or worse.

The person to whom the saddle was made available is not authorized to give the saddle to a third party for use.

If the saddle falls out of control of the person to whom it was made available, the latter must immediately notify TIBO Equestrian.

If no damage description of the saddle has been drawn up between the parties, the saddle will be deemed to have been made available in an undamaged condition.

All the aforementioned provisions also apply to goods other than saddles if temporarily made available by TIBO Equestrian.

It is possible to rent a saddle from TIBO Equestrian. It is determined by TIBO Equestrian whether the client is eligible for this. Specific conditions apply to rental saddles, which may differ per person and situation.

The client must report problems with regard to fit and manufacturing defects within 2 weeks after delivery. These then fall under the warranty period. If the client has complained within 2 weeks and TIBO Equestrian agrees with the complaint, 90% of the purchase amount will be refunded and the saddle taken back. The 10% pr production deposit is non-refundable.

If the client complains within 3 months and TIBO Equestrian acknowledges that the product does not meet the requirements set by the client and TIBO Equestrian, the depreciation percentage of 20% applies.

Death of the horse is not a reason for TIBO Equestrian to take back the saddle and refund the purchase price.
