Fit is Everything - Infinitely Adjustable for Optimal Comfort & Performance!

Saddle design for the well-being of your horse!

Even a horse with a perfectly fitted saddle will never be fully protected from long term damage if the saddle is not suited to the anatomical build and gender of the rider.
80 points of consideration for horse and rider are evaluated before our saddlers begin creating a customized saddle to your unique requirements.

Discover the features of a “female saddle”

Ergonomically designed ‘saddles for women’ allow female riders to sit properly balanced and comfortably positioned. The benefits:

  • Flexes with your horse’s lateral movement to improve connection and communication
  • Accommodates asymmetry at the shoulder to maintain saddle straightness
  • Rear-facing, shock absorbing tree points allow shoulders to freely rotate upwards/ backwards and prevent potential chipping of scapular cartilage
  • The unique panel design provides maximum weight bearing surface and pressure dispersal over the saddle support area
  • Shoulder relief panels free up shoulder for maximum movement
  • Wide channel clearance prevents damage to spinal processes and vertebrae promoting back freedom.

Testimonials

I have just had my first ride in my new Eagle saddle. I will preface this by saying I was skeptical about my spending this kind of money for a saddle. As I explained, I’m from the old school, and had always gotten by without much special attention to the saddle before – I guess I was just lucky that my previous horses did not have the problems that are apparent today. I’ve ridden off and on since I was 7, and am now 57. I took time off when having a family, but always found some way to at least ride “other people’s horses. I was hoping lots of work on the roads and in the fields would be enough to have him do H/J and equitation at least, but the kissing spine diagnosis most likely suggests that won’t be happening. But this morning, I just had my first ride in my new saddle, on the scenic back roads here in upstate New York. Bagavond was very happy. I always knew him to be a pretty smart fellow, who needs a job. He loves getting out. And I have never had a more comfortable ride. I feel now I can work with him safely, without exacerbating his problems. So today was the first day we had it all together – and my first day back to my life’s passion. I also appreciate the video on your website of the 93 year old woman. You see, my sister had a friend, Frances, up in Cazenovia, NY – and she rode until she passed away at 95. That is who I wish to be. There is nothing like having a horse in your life.
