When considering a SMART™saddle, the thing that resonated with me was SMART™ Saddles’ Comfort / Performance / Welfare statements
We still have a very long way to go but, with the versatile SMART Native GP saddle, we are defiantly heading in the right direction - having completed our first 10k and entered a TREC pairs competition, something I thought we would never achieve.
I will never use anything other than a SMART Saddle now, and I truly believe it has made Pie and I become the competitive partnership that we are, helping to inspire people across the globe today.
We tried the saddle for a couple of weeks on rental and Holly seemed very comfortable. They have both built their confidence back up very quickly and are now flying again - we can’t wait for the Pony Club season to start!
I am so glad that I found SMART™ Saddles - I just wish I had discovered them sooner! The SMART™ saddle fitting experience was so easy and stress free, and the SMART Elite Jump saddle is a perfect fit for him.
Not only is it comfortable and secure for the rider, but it also gives her the freedom of movement through her shoulders
Jack became more relaxed and the biting and bucking stopped and six months on and I can honestly say that he is the most relaxed happy pony and my daughter and I are enjoying every minute with him.
"Thank you from the bottom of my heart, I honestly thought I was going to have to retire her & now I see a future again – my SMART™ Native Dressage saddle was worth every penny.”
Bobby has been ridden in a SMART™ Dressage saddle since April and has really developed through his back and paces since then.
Sue van Eyle, a SMART investment well worth pursuing. With online fitting advice and after only a couple of rides, that Skip was already much happier.
Rodney is a retired racehorse that we bought in August 2020 for my daughter Ruby. He was pretty much unschooled but so willing and sweet natured
We made the switch to the SMART Elite Dressage saddle; his whole front end came up and he was next level to ride. Long story short, I was mind blown!
I have been a practicing human and equine therapist for over 23 years. I noticed SMART Saddles many years ago. My opinions on anything equestrian
I now have a SMART™ PRO VSD saddle and the fit is great both for Ebony and for me, especially with the adjustable knee and thigh blocks
The SMAR saddle is amazing! It fits Hugo perfectly all the time, so putting on or losing the odd pound doesn’t matter and, as he’s changing shape
I finally got my first SMART saddle 2 years ago after having numerous issues with fitting a treed saddle to my cob; constant reflocks and needing a new saddle
SMART™ Elite Dressage saddle has radically improved my Warmbloods movement through his back. We have now been selected to represent Scotland.
After struggling for years of finding, fitting and funding saddles for the wide variety of horses and ponies we currently have at HAPPA.
This is Asbo, a 14.2hh, hairy chestnut cob. I bought him 2 years ago, a few months after he’d been backed - I’m a novice rider and he was a novice horse.
As a Ride with Your Mind Biomechanics Coach and Masterson Method bodyworker I appreciate the importance of correct rider balance and comfort for the horse.
"It is such a relief to ride out with the knowledge that my new SMART™ saddle is not restricting my horse’s movement or causing her any discomfort."
For years I have struggled with saddle fit for my ever-changing Haflinger. Eventually, our saddle fitter recommended we try a flexible saddle.
I have a 5-year-old part Dales x Clydesdale Gypsy cob gelding who I have had since a foal. He was backed by myself but he was forever changing shape
Robbie has started the 2021 event season using his new SMART Elite jump saddle. He really likes the feel of the close contact and his balance
After being told by a few saddlers that I would not get a saddle to fit Rona, my Welsh Cob x ID tabletop mare, I had all but given up trying to buy a saddle
I liked the idea of trying a flexible saddle that would allow my youngster to move freely whilst still growing, but also fit me well.
I was amazed at how secure and comfortable I felt while still being able to actually feel Wanda moving properly for the first time.
Being able to have a 'proper' saddle whilst not having to worry about it not fitting in 6 months time is a real bonus.
I would recommend SMART Saddles unreservedly for all aspects of riding, from happy hackers to high level competition riders.
Eat, Sleep, Ride CIC would like to say a massive thank you to SMART Saddles for making a product that will last our riding school horses a lifetime.
Louie is a Welsh cross, 15.2hh, 9 yr old gelding and I have owned him for two years. He has been a complete joy in every way.
I’ve always loved riding in a dressage saddle and when I bought my narrow four year old, I didn’t think it would be worth buying one for him
