VSD WH and Show Saddles

VSD WH and Show Saddles

VSD is slightly more forward cut than the Dressage Saddle. This allows for more versatility, especially if you don't feel comforatable riding uber long. WH is a traditional saddle with a shorter flap and often a flatter seat. Show Saddles are straight cut and often have a more open seat. Our saddle makers have access to a huge variety of trees and panels so we can work on the ideal solution for your needs. From tree shape and panel shape to seat preferences and knee roll.

Secondhand Saddles

Every so often we have demo saddles that are no longer needed that we can offer at great prices. We are constantly ‘tweaking’ our demo pool to ensure we have something for everyone. These demo saddles come with a 7 day trial period to see if it is a match for you and your horse. We prefer that you send through a template and photos to see whether the saddle is a possible fit candidate. Please note: Not all our demo saddles are listed on the website. Please feel free to call us if there is something you are after.

We also take selected saddles on consignment. These are saddles that fit our saddle fitting guidelines are a great way to source something without having to go new.. Consignment Saddles must be paid in full prior to shipping to you. If you have a saddle to sell - check out our "Saddle to Sell" page

Berkeley Open Seat Dressage Saddle

The Berkeley Open Seat Dressage Saddle gives the rider more room in the seat than the regular deep seat model, this will give the feel and fit of a saddle half an inch larger without moving up to the next seat size. This model proves useful when fitting a horse with a shorter back or for the rider who prefers the classic shallower seat.

This Open Seat is available in both the Exterior or Concealed knee roll versions; all of the specifications of the deep seat models are the same.

Our hand made wood and spring steel saddle tree has a unique shaped pommel and swept-back points give wither clearance and complete freedom of shoulder movement and a newly sculptured waist to allow the hips and thighs to fall naturally for a more comfortable leg position.

We have incorporated our Lovatt & Ricketts® stainless steel swing stirrup bar that eliminates any pressure on the horse that is a common problem in this area were the stirrup leathers are attached. The stirrup bars are made of the highest quality stainless steel and crafted to be unobtrusive to the rider’s thigh. Our panels are lined with French Calf skin and flocked with pure 100% English lambs wool to give a soft and supple profile that is the ultimate in comfort for your horse. With our unique quick change billeting system  the rider has the flexibility to move the front billet to two positions, coupled with the rear billet being attached to a balancing ring; helps to achieve the perfect girth line.

The Berkeley is crafted in the finest hand finished English and French leathers to facilitate a “no breaking in” period, giving a wonderful close-contact feel even on the first ride.
