I'd just like to say I was shopping for a saddle & finally decided on a Ian Saunders. Ian was amazing to deal with. Very patient, not pushy. I felt like I was a pain or just indecisive when completing my order. Ian helped me along the way. I didn't want anything flash just a good saddle thatI'd have for life. Ian let me try his Dove which I loved but I just couldn't decide so ended up going with a standard fender. More than six months down the track I'd just like to say I love the saddle and would highly recommend him as a saddler. Great saddle and great to deal with through the whole process. Thanks again.

“The Dove Special”

Hi Ian,
Just wanting to thank you for making such a great saddle... I love riding in it & now find it very hard to draft in anything else. My little mare that I had all the trouble getting a stock saddle to stay sitting on when she cut out has been getting 24 camp scores & won a big cut out at Adaminaby Draft.. & thanks to saddle I stayed in place!!!
Thanks again

I have just taken delivery of my third saddle from Ian, I find them to be great saddles to work & compete in. I looked at a lot of saddles but found Ian's saddles to suit me and my horses both at work and campdrafts. Also to be exceptional value for money. Thanks Ian & Des

Saddle arrived Friday and I haven't got out of it. I love it. (Just have to save up for a work one now!!!) Thanks Leonie

 What impresses me most about the "Dove Special" is that it is made more for the horses back in mind. It's not only light weight and covers the horse's back evenly it is also a very comfortable tub to ride in.

I strongly recommend the "Dove Special".

I could not be happier with my Ian Saunders 'Dove' saddle. It sits you in the ideal position for training and competition with your seat and legs always in the right spot. Having a deep pocket in the seat your bodyweight is centred perfectly, keeping your weight off the front of the horse and out of the way of its movement.
