Collection: All Purpose Saddles
At EQ Saddlery, we pride ourselves on stocking a range of high-quality saddles for every discipline, including a broad range of premium all-purpose saddles.
What are all purpose saddles?
All purpose saddles, also known as general purpose saddles, are a cross between a dressage and a jump saddle. All purpose saddles have a longer flap than a jump saddle, yet a slightly more forward cut than a dressage saddle. This allows the rider to have versatility in the saddle and gives the rider comfort during flatwork for jumping.
When looking at purchasing an all-purpose saddle there are several things which need to be considered. These factors include colour, material, brand, design of the saddle and size. The most important consideration when buying a saddle is to ensure it not only fits you but it also fits your horse's shape as well. Having a saddle that is fitted to your horse is of the utmost importance as consistent use of a saddle that does not fit can lead to an unhappy, sore horse.
Prior to purchasing an all-purpose saddle from EQ Saddlery, we highly recommend taking your potential saddle/s out on a professional saddle fit with one of our independent saddle fitters. This allows you the opportunity to ensure the saddle can be fitted to your horse, but also allows you to have a sit and feel how the saddle fits when aboard your horse. This gives the customer the peace of mind that when they are purchasing a saddle from EQ Saddlery that both themselves and their horse are confident and content with the saddle.
Where there are saddles, a saddle pad is the best accessory. Saddle pads allow you to express your own style through your riding. Whether you are plain and simple or all class, shop the range of EQ Saddlery’s all purpose saddle pads from a premium range of brands such as Equestrian Stockholm, Fortworth, EQ Armour, Eskardron, LeMieux and more!
