Workhorse Saddle Chairs: Improve your posture and well-being

Created by Workhorse Saddle Chairs

The way we sit is simply wrong. It’s leading to a range of health issues such as back pain, spinal degeneration, muscle aches and strains, headaches and poor circulation among many others. The Workhorse Saddle Chair has been scientifically designed by a Chiropractor to comfortably maintain the body in it’s ideal sitting position. It's time to quit the way you sit, for better health, performance and quality of life. If you missed the Kickstarter campaign you can still pre-order now and save.

The Workhorse is finally leaving the stable
9 months ago – Sat, May 18, 2019 at 08:27:43 PM

Hi Everyone

Well the chairs are finally leaving the factory for their lives around the world - changing the way the world sits one chair at a time. It has been a huge challenge for all concerned but I am so proud and thankful for all the support of so many to make this all happen. I apologise for the delays and thank everyone for their patience I genuinely thought this would have been a simpler process but how naive I was. But we certainly couldn't have got there without the professionalism and commitment way over and above the norm by our tireless factory specialists and Eric our logistics guru. At the end of the day I am thrilled with the product that you are all about to receive.

We will keep you abreast of all the information as we get it but this is the estimated shipping and approximate arrival schedules. For tracking we will provide as much information as we can and feel free to contact us at info@workhorsechair.com and we will try to help. Thanks for the support over the journey so far and I hope you are half as excited about receiving your Workhorse Chair as we are about getting it to you.

Shipping Update Workhorse Saddle Chair
10 months ago – Sat, May 04, 2019 at 09:17:45 PM

Hi Everybody

Sorry this has all been a longer process than I anticipated but boy its been a massive learning curve. Getting a new range of products ready for distribution is seemingly a University degree in itself in terms of the new ground you need to cover. Finally we are ready to start getting the task of shipping and logistics initiated.

We are hoping after final checks on every chair before it goes in its box is completed they will start leaving the factory this week or next. It will be staged with the sea freight to US and Australia going first then Canada and Singapore. The European chairs now will be delivered by courier so you will receive yours much quicker than would have been the case if sent via sea freight. Sea freight to Europe while much cheaper was problematic for me. All the rest will be sent out hopefully over the next 2 weeks. I say hopefully because if there is one thing I have learned in this process it is that small delays can occur completely out of my control that I need to deal with.

We will keep you updated when they leave and any tracking details offered by the shipper/courier so you can keep an eye out. Thanks again for your patience, sorry for the delays but I am sure you are going to love your chair when it arrives.

kind regards

Shipping Update Workhorse Saddle Chair – Further Delays
10 months ago – Mon, Apr 15, 2019 at 10:19:15 PM


Hi all,  another update on shipping as we work through our first production run.  Unfortunately we have encountered more delays as we work through the operational side of manufacturing and shipping the Workhorse Saddle Chair and ensuring we deliver you the highest quality product possible.  While the delays are of course not ideal and we’re extremely sorry about the wait you are experiencing, it’s the reality of manufacturing and international shipping that we are learning and would like to thank you for your patience. 

Revised Date Update

I’ve spent a great day at the factory on Saturday with the manufacturing team and the shipping agent working through the challenging task of sending over 500 chairs to over 40 different countries around the world.   We’re almost there and I plan to spend April 27,28 and 29 doing the final quality control checks personally for every chair as they are packed. No stone is being left unturned to ensure they are all of the highest quality and standard and give you all many years of great service improving your health and posture.

Once all boxes are sealed depending on destination and mode of delivery they will be staged in their shipping to their various destinations. Talking to the shipping agent it is a little like planes, trains and automobiles!  Rather than continuing to commit to delivery dates for each region – I will keep you updated regularly and advise when the chairs have left the factory and when you can expect your chair to arrive depending on your region.  At this stage we estimate the chairs to be leaving the factory from May 1 through May 15.

We are shipping a full container by sea to the US and Australia and a part container to Singapore and Canada and these need to fit into shipping schedules outside our control. It is still possible these dates change a little but it is very close and I will keep you well informed when they leave the factory and will give you a schedule of their approximate intended arrival date.

Thanks for your patience and we look forward to improving your health and posture.

Workhorse Saddle Chair Production and Shipping Update:
12 months ago – Fri, Mar 01, 2019 at 05:03:54 PM

It’s been a busy month working with our manufacturer and shipping partners with over 450 chairs going to 40 different countries.

We’re a little overdue for an update so thanks for your patience as we work through the production and shipping stage of our first commercial production shipment that we couldn’t have achieved without you.     

Production Timing 

Production is progressing well, and we are due for all chairs to be completed and ready for our first shipment to leave the factory by the end of March. 

We have spent an enormous amount of time negotiating the most cost-effective method of delivery for each global region, so delivery times to your door will vary depending on your location.  For customers from the US, Canada, Australia and Europe we have managed to consolidate enough orders to allow us to ship the orders by sea then distribute internally via courier. Most Asian ports are by direct courier with airfreight being used for most other ports.

Delivery Timing

Appreciating that we plan for all chairs to leave the factory by the end of March, guides on delivery to your door timings are:

US and Canada: Early May (4 weeks shipping + 1 week clearing and domestic distribution)

Europe and UK:  End of April (3 weeks shipping + 1 week clearing and domestic distribution)

Australia: Mid-April (2 weeks shipping + 1 week clearing and domestic distribution)

Asian Ports Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan, Japan, Korea, Singapore, Malaysia should receive their chairs in early April.

All other ports of which there are many, will be airfreighted and can expect to be received a week to 10 days after leaving the factory at the end of March depending on customs clearance in your country.

This is our current expected production and delivery timings and we will keep you updated with progress along the journey of our first commercial production shipment.    

It’s exciting to finally realize our mission of changing the way the world sits, with our chairs going across the globe to offices, homes, health and medical clinics, hairdressers and even bars with 8 of our Slide models going to the Longreach Tavern in Australia’s outback!  

We can’t wait to get you your chair/s and hear your feedback as you change the way you sit for good.
