Dressage English Saddles For Sale

Dressage saddles have a more upright deeper seat and longer flaps than other English saddles. They also have longer billet straps and are approximately 1/2" to 1" larger than close contact type saddles.

Close Contact Saddles

Close contact saddles keep a rider as close as possible to a horse's movement and are specifically made for a jumper rider. The stirrups and saddle skirts/flaps are more forward and shorter in these saddles, and most feature a minimal knee block.

All-Purpose Saddles

These saddles are designed for all types of English riding, including trail riding, jumping a course of fences, or doing flatwork.

Cross Country/Eventing Saddles

These saddles have a deeper seat and a bigger knee roll which provide more stability.

Endurance Saddles

Endurance saddles have sufficient padding for comfort but are lighter, in order to decrease the stress of riding 50 to 100 miles in one day on the horse.

Pony Saddles

Pony saddles fit the stockier body of a pony, and also can fit the tiny seat of a child. Made of leather or synthetic materials, they offer an inexpensive entry into the sport of riding.

English Saddles Fitting & Sizing Information

English saddles are available in sizes ranging from narrow to extra wide, and we even carry XXX wide saddles.

English Saddle Care instructions

Temperature extremes of hot or cold can damage synthetics as well as leathers, so it's a necessity to keep your saddle at a proper level of moisture. You should keep it free of debris and dirt by wiping it with a clean, soft, slightly damp sponge after every ride. Leather can be cleaned with glycerin gel or bar soap, or saddle soap paste, and can be followed up with 100% pure neatsfoot oil. Special synthetic saddle cleaners can be used with man-made materials and faux leather. Conditioners are also important. Try Vaquero rawhide cream or Skidmore's leather cream.
