What to consider when buying a saddle?
Finding a saddle that fits both you and your horse well can be challenging.
There are three things to consider when you’re purchasing a saddle: your style of riding, the saddle materials, and the fit.
Your style of riding will dictate the type of saddle you need.
What is the best saddle to buy?
The M. Toulouse Aachen Dressage Saddle is the best horse riding saddle for those just starting out in the discipline or competing at the highest levels.
It offers supreme fit for the horse and ultimate comfort for the rider, all while placing the rider in the correct position on the horse’s back.
What is a saddle made of?
They are made from high-quality wood, fiberglass, steel, iron, or synthetic materials and are the base on which the whole saddle is built.
Usually, saddle trees should be built to fit the horse for which it is intended, to ensure the proper fit and comfort are taken into consideration.
How long does the saddle last?
For an amateur rider, we suggest a saddle change every 15,000-20,000km (9,300-12,400 miles).
This doesn’t mean the saddle is not usable after this distance, but the performance of the padding and the shell will start to deteriorate.”
