We want riders to get more out of riding, spending less time finding or selling their saddle and more time riding in one that’s right.
Take 2 saddles on trial for 5 days
Ride before you decide!
90% of riders take advantage of the Saddles Direct trial service.
Every trial comes with a free saddle consultation, so you can be confident you're trialing the best saddles for you and your horse.
Not sure where to start? The most important thing to us, is that you buy a saddle that fits your horse correctly. We don't just want you to buy a saddle online, any new saddle purchase should always be done with a saddle fitter.
THE SADDLE PEOPLE
Pioneers of the Saddle Trial, we’ve been here for riders and their horses since 2004.
We understand the importance of having the right saddle and the difficulty in finding one. So we offer riders the best choice and a personal service, providing friendly, expert guidance to help you find a saddle, and the professional support you need to feel confident that it is right.
