Kent & Masters saddles are developed using Pliance Pressure mapping to ensure pressure is evenly distributed, encouraging freedom of motion. The saddles are hand-crafted in Walsall, England using traditional techniques and high-quality materials. Three unique panel profiles offer fitting solutions for low, medium, and high-withered conformations. Each Kent & Masters saddle is flocked with 100% British wool and is compatible with a changeable gullet bar system, allowing the rider to easily adjust the width of the saddle at the pommel as the horse grows, develops, or changes shape.
These changeable gullet bars are available in seven sizes from Narrow/Medium to XW/XXW. The changeable gullet system allows the rider to quickly and easily adjust the width of the tree at the pommel as their horse grows, develops, or changes shape after time off.
An eighth size, XXW, is available only for saddle models compatible with “S,” or short-length bars.
Kent & Masters saddle models are offered with 3 different wither profile designs for low, medium, and high withers. The saddle designs for each are based not only on wither height, but also on other fitting concerns unique to each conformation type.
Kent & Masters saddles are fitted with 3 billets, with the 3rd one being movable. The flexible girthing arrangement allows you to modify the billet position to optimize saddle stability quickly and easily.
Kent & Masters stirrup leathers are covered in top-quality hide leather with a non-stretch webbing core. These leathers are double stitched for strength and durability and feature stainless steel buckles. Available in black or brown. 48″-64″.
