With a flat seat, a square low cantle, straight cut saddle flaps the Pony Saddle Company Barton show saddle gives a elegant, neat, traditional look with the addition of a soft comfortable seat, showing off the shoulder giving a close contact look and feel. The Barton comes in our rich dark brown colour and is available in full leather or part suede.
It is available in all widths, Tree and Panel options, whatever shape the horse or pony..13″,14,”15,”16″,16.5″17″ and 17.5″ or as a special order 18″ depending what is needed for the horse/pony and the rider. Suitable for all types of Native Ponies and horses the Barton also looks really good on Arab’s, Show Hunters,Hacks and is also available with a special panel for High withered, Thoroughbred horses. The flatter seat provides a lot of space for the rider making it particularly suitable for ponies and horses with short backs and a wider seat is available to accomodate larger riders or a judge.
All saddles come with standard four girthing straps to allow all ponies to be accommodated and with wide wool flocked or memory foam panels and a wide gullet.
Aesthetic appearance is very important with a show horse or 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 cobination 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 horse, 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.
