About the Felt Saddle

With loving attention to detail

Our felt saddle is exclusively produced in manual labor in Germany. The felt for the upper side can be chosen in a mottled or clear color. The bottom side also completely consists of felt which is dirt resistant and washable. Because our felt is a completely natural product there can be color variations. There are six different standard colors available. But we’re able to satisfy nearly every possible color request. The inside of the felt saddle is filled with several foams that don’t get flattened even after a very long usage. Like that shape and firmness stay warranted. The straps are made out of Biothane, which’s got an extreme firmness and is very easy to wash. For an extra charge you can also purchase the saddle with leather straps. The garnish strip in the middle of the saddle is out of easy-care alcantara and brings the appearance down to a round figure.

With loving attention to the horse

A long time we’ve been searching for a joint between horse an rider which gives the possibility to feel the movements of the horse at the same time to protect it’s back from the bones of the rider. As we couldn’t find anything, we started to work on it ourselves and are proud to say that we managed to produce such a thing. The result is a light, comfortable, flexible and accommodative saddle which is perfectly suitable for the lane and fields as well for dressage and just riding for fun. With a special combination out of several layers of felt, foams and upholstery we created a felt saddle with an excellent fit for the horse and a very high sitting comfort for the rider. The big advantage is, that our saddle has even without a tree and head iron a saddlelike sitting area. This helps the rider to get into a position, in which the leg falls loose and the hip is able to follow the motions of the horse in a relaxed way. The unique construction relieves the spine of the horse and keeps it free. The appropriate elaborated space helps that even horses with a very high wither are able to be ridden with this saddle. On purpose we left the saddle without stirrups to avoid punctual pressure on the wither.

Exact influence, fine assistance

Our felt saddle is designed like that that it allows the finest weight help from the rider and enables more sensitive riding than a conventional saddle. This way the horse can be guided with very light assistance and for the rider it’s even easier to balance the seat independently. With the felt saddle you’re also able to learn three characteristics of a good seat or rather improve them: The first is to not disturb the horse in it’s movement and to tolerate it’s motions, second is to feel the reactions of the horse better during you’re riding and last but not least is to influence the motions of the horse selectively to improve the balance in all speeds and gaits. The felt saddle supports the abilities to empathize into the movements of the horse, to develop an independent seat and to feel what’s going on inside the horse. But of course you can just simply enjoy the proximity of your partner, the horse!
