Saddle Fitting Solutions, Handmade in England

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.
