Thank you!

As always, both Ideal and Ian from Minster Saddlery have managed to supply me with a saddle that fits the Andalusian breed of horse so brilliantly well. After spending so much money on other saddles and never finding that they have felt right on the build of the horse. They just perched on top of them like a basket on an elephant. Now both the horse and I feel truly connected in unison! It was super to be able to make it more bespoke and customise the design for such a small amount of money extra. I only wish I had found you sooner.

I would recommend the Impala 1450 as I have used it on a number of horses with great results. It allows the horse to move and jump more freely. It has improved muscle tone and strength in the horses back. It is also very comfortable and secure for the rider whilst still allowing you to move. All the horses I have ridden in the impala have benefited and improved.

I can't rate the Ideal saddles highly enough having used them for many years. We have used a whole range of saddles over the years, they offer great comfort for both the horses and myself and come at a very reasonable price. They keep my team very happy. We look forward to next year.

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!

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!

My horses and I are avid fans of Ideal saddles. We have the Jessica Dressage, Grandee, Working Hunter & a VSD. The saddles are comfortable for both horse and rider, and the leather is superb. I have other saddles but these stay in storage.... Ideal all the way for my boys. Paul

I’m very excited about the opportunity in working with the team at Ideal & WRS. They have stepped in post Barnsby and have offered me excellent technical support already. I look forward to working with them for many years to come.

I have just had the luxury of buying a brand new saddle, the Ideal Gazelle. Oh my gosh! I have never sat in a saddle so comfortable and fits my rather tricky shaped ISH perfectly. The quality of the workmanship is unbelievable and I am so very happy with it. I cannot believe that I have found a saddle that not only fits my horse beautifully, but also fits me, and at 6ft 4 with long legs that is no small feat! The schrumph seat and and knee roles are divine I am looking forward to many years of riding in my new super comfy Ideal Saddle.
