Daniel Hammond BHSI, International Dressage Trainer
"I have ridden in a SMART™ saddle since 2003. Every horse, without exception, has performed better than in a traditional saddle. I believe that if we wish to ride horses, we have a moral duty to make them as comfortable as possible, not only to achieve the best performance from them but also to promote their general wellbeing. SMART™ saddles make this possible."
Karen Redfearn BHSII
“Riding many different horses (some short term for backing, some longer term for competition), I was finding it difficult and expensive to make sure each horse had a saddle that fitted well. SMART™ saddles proved to be the solution and I haven’t looked back since.”
SMART™ Saddles Ambassador, Penny Lawn BHSI
“I love both my SMART™ PRO saddles. My lovely little Thoroughbred has always tried his hardest at dressage but never found it easy. With the SMART™ PRO, all of a sudden, sideways is as easy as forwards... Fantastic!It is SO comfortable! ...and if I'm comfortable my horse has to be more comfortable!”
“I LOVE my SMART™Jump saddle! I have used it on many different horses over the years & always had fantastic results.”

"Focusing on the holistic well-being of horses and their riders and the outstanding results that riders are able to achieve with SMART™ saddles s truly rewarding."
"As an ambitious and competitive BE rider, I worked my way through many and varied saddle fittings, which proved to be unsuccessful, before finding the SMART™ saddles for my Event mare. I understand the importance of taking the holistic approach to competition horse health, since having to treat chronic ulcers and complicated musculo-skeletal problems which contributed to foot balance issues as a result of ill-fitting saddles."
Ann Marie Marek, trainer for Intelligent Horsemanship and an accredited Ride with your Mind Coach
“I found SMART™ Saddles in 2006 when I had three very different sized horses who all needed saddle; SMART™ Saddles allowed one saddle to fit all three horses. I regularly see behaviour and physical problems with horses which can be tracked back to poor saddle fit. The flexible saddle system has allowed me to demonstrate to owners how much their current saddle is contributing to the poor performance or behaviour of their horse. I really appreciate how much freedom my SMART™ Saddle gives my horses and when their shape fluctuates through the year it is so easy to accommodate these shape changes with small adjustments to the fitting.”
