All our saddles are made on spring trees, from laminated wood. Each tree is made by hand and tested to ensure that it sits evenly on the horse's back. The leathers used are all full-grain and vegetable-tanned to W&H Gidden's exacting specifications. These fine saddles are available in the same colours as our range of bridles, ensuring full co-ordination of all your equipment.
