This Seasons Top 10 Jump Saddles Unveiled

An excellent collection of jumping saddles has evolved over time to keep pace with the ever-changing influences of horse training competing and breeding. So, without further a-do, this week we bring to you the top 10 best jumping saddles chosen by leading professionals, the staff here at Saddles Direct HQ and the buying behaviour of our customers old and new.

K2 Jump

Arguably the most desirable saddle on the market, the K2 Jump continues to be in popular demand this season. Distinctively designed and made from traditional leathers, the K2 Jump Saddle is ideal for the competitive rider with its super soft seat, closer leg positioning, large knee and thigh blocks and Ajdusta tree technology. The K2 Jump is as comfortable for you as it is your horse.

If you’re looking for a slightly deeper seat with a supportive leg, you will love the K2 Jump saddle.

SD Hunter

Crafted in the UK and made from English leather on a traditional wooden tree, the Saddles Direct Hunter is amongst a range of popular jump saddles we proudly have to offer. Designed to be economical, so gentle on the purse strings, the SD Hunter is a prestigious saddle to purchase without compromising quality, comfort or fit!

Featuring luxurious calfskin covered skirts and flaps, padded stitching, moveable front blocks, a square cantle, cognac piping detail, forward flap projection and protective leg wear, the SD Hunter ticks all the boxes and guaranteed to turn heads in the ring.

Black Country Wexford

The Black Country Wexford is a deep-seated jumping saddle and compared to most traditional jump saddles, has a wider seat offering optimum comfort.

With it’s large supporting knee and thigh blocks, short front gussets and 3 middle girthing system, the Black Country Wexford offers rider security and an extra forward flap option for the taller rider too. The panel and tree combinations also allow for a multitude of profiles – a superb saddle for the novice jumper or for those of us who like an “arm-chair” ride!

Ideal Impala 1450

Launched in 2006, aimed at providing a saddle with lots of panel surface area to accommodate fit and well-muscled competition horses, the Ideal Impala 1450 jump saddle is the perfect choice for a medium to high withered horse with a flat back and atrovy or sloping topline.

You would choose the 1450 mpala jump if:

-Your horse has sloping topline or slight atrovy in the back
-You want a flatter seated jump saddle and leaning back cantle for rider freedom
-You want a large knee and thigh blocked jump saddle for a more secure seat
-Your horse needs more panel support with front gussets and a drop panel

Amerigo DJ

Highly desirable, particularly amongst short backed horses and bigger warmbloods, the Amerigo DJ saddle is also highly recommended and used by professionals all over the world in a variety of rider disciplines, especially jump.

The knowledge gained over 20 years of designing top class saddles, has gone into the creation of the Amerigo saddle line, a saddle line created for performance and that has been developed to benefit horses’ natural biomechanics to achieve optimal potential.

SD Duel Jump

Made with love here at Saddles Direct, we wanted to create a saddle that ticked every box and we have done just that. Over a decade, we’ve worked tirelessly to develop and innovate and dynamic range of high-quality saddles that fit horse of today and importantly, saddles that our riders love to ride in!

The SD Jump offers all the attributes required in a jump saddle, while offering more support with a deeper seat, adjustable front and rear knee blocks and also features a wooden spring tree, rider security, a luxurious leather grip flap and skirt, full front gussets and woollen flocked bearing panels.

Equipe synergy

If you’re looking for a much lighter saddle, the Equipe Synergy could be the one for you!

With a synthetic tree, the Equipe Synergy is much lighter than most and has a single flap for closer contact with pre formed panels and wide gullet. This model also comes with a square cantle and anatomically shaped knee rolls.

Made from the finest Italian Calfskin leather, the Equipe Synergy is super comfortable, supportive and offers the freedom you need, a highly desirable saddle, guaranteed not to disappoint.

Black Country Solare

We are proud to introduce you to the new Solare Jump Saddle – ideal for those riders looking for an innovative highly quality saddle.

Made with vintage leather, the Solare offers excellent value for money, combining cutting edge design, technology and the ability to achieve close contact. The forward-fitting seat also offers freedom of movement and is suitable for the majority of rider disciplines.

Bates Elevation

This saddle achieves unprecedented close contact, perfect balance and stability.

For the horse, it features an anatomic tree that reduces any inclination for the saddle to lift. With t

The Bates elevation is also completely customisable and the leading panel system is renowned for unparalleled impact, absorption and comfort. The saddle also features an anatomically shaped tree which enables greater comfort and room the horses shoulder, whilst retaining a close contact for you, the rider. It reduces the occurrence of lifting at the back and the precise cantle angle encourage you to find your central position with ease.

The seat is also shaped to maintain breadth behind your seat, ensuring comfortable landings, whilst thinning it right down where your leg drops on to the horse, so that the transition is ultra-narrow and seamless.

Falcon Adler VSS

And last but by no means least is the Falcon Adler VSS.

This traditionally-styled combination jumping saddle is built on a medium deep, square cantle tree with flaps which are forward-cut with soft air-flow knee-pads and large knee-rolls to give maximum grip when jumping.

The panels which are flocked with pure wool will also help provide the perfect fit.

This saddle would suit you if you are just starting jumping, do not need a large forward cut flap or if your horse needs some support (with this saddle having a drop panel and full front gussets this would give you the support you need)

This saddle also features movable front blocks and fixed back blocks, making it suitable for a variation of riders.
