SADDLE TEST RIDES…

As horse owners and horse lovers, at Natural Horseman Saddles we know that looking after their health and wellbeing is of paramount importance.  Buying a new saddle is an investment, but also a HUGE decision.  That is why we offer our Saddle Test Ride Program.

We have helped thousands of Horse lovers into saddles all over the planet, who ride all breeds:

– Broad-shouldered/broad backed horses (whether they be Icelandic, Quarter Horses, Percherons, Cobbs, Haflingers, Shires….)

– Short-backed Horses of all sorts.

– Gaited horses who need all sorts of extra shoulder-swinging room

– Arabians (and even Fresians) who have “hourglass torsos” with narrow shoulders and broad backs

– “Hard-to-Fit” horses of all sorts: those with deteriorated physiques, asymmetrical issues or just plain “not yet successfully fit with a saddle”…for whatever reason.

Whether you ride Western, English, or anything in between, searching for a suitable saddle can be expensive, time-consuming and let’s face it… Frustrating!

We want to ensure you make the right choice the first time.

You and your horse/s deserve equipment that not only looks good but feels great too. After all, saddles that free your horse’s body will also free their mind. The end result? Enhancing your relationship rather than detracting from it.
