Here’s Angela Jackson’s Stunning Welsh Section D Stallion “King” being ridden in his Glen working Hunter.
Aesthetic appearance is very important with a show pony as is comfort of the rider, so as with all saddles available from us a custom saddle can be designed for the individual customer/ horse or pony combination if required with a number of options including custom knee blocks, twist and flap length so we really can produce the perfect, comfortable saddle for yourself and to flatter the pony, as Mathew Lawrence says in our video ” Sometimes you have to sit in a class for 3 hours” so you need to be comfortable. We however recommend that you ride in a standard saddle for the 7 day trial before ordering so we can be sure the correct saddle is made as custom saddles are non returnable.
