  • "I'm delighted with my Ideal saddle. It is very comfortable and perfectly fits me and my horse. It gives me a close contact and the feel that I need to ride the higher level movements!" - Hayley Watson-Greaves


When I got my first horse I tried a few saddles, but the best fitting one for me and my IDx with his elevated movement was an Ideal which I got second hand and I didn't even have a fall in over 5 years it was so secure and comfortable. Unfortunately my saddle was stolen and I was gutted! I got a Barnsby, but I never felt like when riding in my Ideal. I changed the Barnsby after a fall and got a Prestige which again was very nice and 'felt' a bit more like my original Ideal! I still use this but I decided to get another Ideal and it always feels more like I have close contact with my horse when riding. They really are fantastic value for money, but more important fit both myself and my horse!! Thank you for making them!
