Saddle Pads



All our swinging fender stock saddles are built on trees with stirrup bars unless otherwise requested. They are made on a composite moulded tree or can be customized on a wood/fibreglass tree.

The fender saddles come with three seat options:

• a hard seat,

• an inlay seat which is designed with a soft layer under your pin bones

• or a full soft seat version.


The Dove Special is a cross between a swinging fender saddle and a cutting saddle, with a specially designed pocket in the seat which supports the rider. It also has stirrup bars to allow plenty of movement.

The tree has excellent weight distribution and allows maximum shoulder movement for the horse.


Our reining saddles are designed to be:

· Comfortable for both horse and rider

· Support the rider during manoeuvres particularly the spins and the   stops

· Be a good fit on the horses back and allow freedom of movement   for the horse.



The cutting saddle is designed with four main principles:  

For the rider:

  • to provide a flat spot in the back of the pocket for getting stopped
  • to lay the riders leg so that their toes are turned without effort  and to keep you knees out of the way for the rollback.
For the horse:
  •  it allows plenty of freedom for the shoulder movement
  •  the tree has excellent weight distribution and is well balanced on the horses back.
