Dressage Saddle

Designed to support the rider in a longer leg position with long flaps, prominent knee block and deeper seat.

  • Allows the rider to lengthen their stirrups with extended supportive knee blocks 
  • Available as both dual and mono flap 
  • Deep seated

See available Dressage Saddles

Jump Saddles

Supporting the rider in a shorter leg position with shorter flap length but much more forward cut with knee blocks. As a result the cantle is square and often flatter in the seat than a General Purpose (GP) saddle.

  • More forward cut 
  • Provides freedom for the horses shoulder
  • Allows riders to shorten their saddles and maintain a balanced position over fences 

See available Jump Saddles

Pony Saddles

A pony saddle is specially developed to give young riders a very comfortable and supportive seat for confidence in the saddle.

  • Designed specifically with the pony's size and conformation in mind
  • Increased safety for the young rider

See available Pony Saddles

General Purpose (GP) Saddles

For riders who like to do a bit of everything. Hence, the flaps are forward cut enough for jumping whilst being long enough for schooling and flatwork.

  • Suitable for so a number of activities – hacking, hunting, fun rides, low level jumping, riding club etc. 
  • Also know as All Purpose saddles
