At EQ Saddlery, we pride ourselves on stocking a range of high-quality saddles for every discipline, including a broad range of premium show saddles. Show saddles are designed to show off the horse’s conformation, particularly the horse's shoulder. This means the saddle is typically a minimal design with a close contact fit and straight cut flap. Show saddles traditionally have a thin knee block and a flatter seat than a dressage saddle, however more recent designs of show saddles now have a medium knee block along with a slightly deeper seat.
When looking at purchasing a show 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 a show 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 dressage or show saddle pads from a premium range of brands such as Equestrian Stockholm, Fortworth, EQ Armour, Eskardron, LeMieux and more!
