Achieving the optimum fit

The team at the National Saddle Centre are constantly working to achieve the optimum fit.

Every horse and rider combination is unique!

We first take time to understand your individual requirements, the direction you wish to take, your targets and ambitions and the subtle changes that can affect the success of the horse/rider partnership.

A full physical assessment of your horse, his conformation and movement is made and recorded, not only for today but future reference. Your horse’s level of training and any issues encountered are noted as this can affect the balance, stability and straightness of your saddle.

Test rides and feedback are recorded to best determine appropriate seat size, seat width and leg position, and when combined ensure rider security and balance. The comfort of the saddle for horse and rider is essential for maximum performance and is a multi dimensional issue, which is relative to the discipline you are trying to excel in.


Our aim at the National Saddle Centre is to maximise biomechanical ability in order to reduce fatigue, and increase all round mechanical confidence, without compromise.
