I started to understand the cavity that the SMART™ saddle has the opportunity to fill. With SMART™ FlexTech technology you start to create true synchrony and synergy between horse and rider. Where the saddle excels is in the support and secure close contact feel while offering the horse true freedom over the fence.

After trying the latest range of SMART™ saddles on all of my horses I was really impressed. One of the event horses felt as though his good jump became even better and our retrained ex-racehorse felt so much more uphill in the SMART™ Dressage saddle. Another of the horses’ paces, particularly canter, felt really good, so I now can't wait to get him eventing again. He has improved so much since I started riding him in the SMART saddles, so I am very excited about the season ahead with a SMART Jump!!

I am so excited to join the team as a SMART™ Ambassador. The SMART™ Elite Dressage Saddle is probably one of the most comfortable saddles I have ever sat in. I love that I can make little tweaks to help my position on the horse. Where it is flexible, I can get a really good feeling of what is going on underneath me, and it gives such a close feeling to the horse. With three horses out competing in British Dressage, from Novice to Advanced/Prix St George, only having to put one saddle into the lorry for the three of them is such a massive bonus and saves so much lorry space.

I've ridden lots of horses, in lots of saddles, having gained my BHSI qualification almost 15 years ago. I'd never go back to using treed saddles and my Warmblood competed at Inter 1 in my SMART™ saddle too. Most of my riding school horses go in SMART™ saddles and I plan to increase my collection so that all my school horses are ridden in them.

"I love the SMART™ Elite saddles. They allow the flexibility to use it on any horse, including the narrower stamp. It gives me a close contact feel and my horses all the freedom they need."

"I love the SMART™ saddles because my horses love them. They have made riding comfortable for students and horses, our equine massage therapist commented how much better our horses' backs are, the horses are moving and jumping better, the students are happy, and it's made saddle fitting so much easier without the need for expensive appointments and constant readjustments.
I am so thankful I found SMART™ Saddles!"

SMART™ saddles have offered us the perfect solution as they can be fitted and used on a variety of different horses, meaning every time we bring a new horse into ridden work we don’t need to invest in a new saddle or have a saddle fitter out. The saddles are also easy to fit using a variety of different shims and pads. The SMART™ Native range is designed for cob types, which makes up for majority of the horses we have in at the centre.
