 “He felt super!”

"I believe a SMART™ saddle is what everyone should be using!"

 “Following the purchase of my SMART™ GP saddle, I am a huge fan of SMART™ saddles; it is like magic; the way you feel part of the horse when riding, and with such soft leather it feels like you are moulded to the horses back.

Having completed a horse physiotherapy course, I think they are the way forward and believe a SMART™ saddle is perfect for horses with spinal issues; when you look at a horses spinal column, a SMART™ saddle is what everyone should be using. I feel passionate about the science behind the SMART™ saddles and how beneficial they are to supporting injured or difficult-to-fit horses.

Thanks to a friend, I was able to ride in her SMART™ saddle before the Solution Saddles Advisor came to fit to me and my horse at a test ride. Not only did we get on so well, but she had a great understanding of fitting for the welfare of the horse and avoiding back problems.

Thank you Solution Saddles!”

Lady Beauts wins her class at Derby College Hunter Trial in her SMART™Native Jump saddle.

“Before trying the SMART™ Native Jump saddle, I was sceptical about changing to a treeless saddle, as all those I'd sat in moved and were not suitable for jumping.

However, I had a trial in the SMART™ Native Jump saddle and couldn't believe how comfortable it was; it rode and looked like a traditional treed saddle but was rigid free. All saddles I had tried previously struggled to fit the wide shouldered / flat backed native but this fits like a dream and doesn't move at all.


 Beauty is much freer in her shoulders and has not had a single back issue in the five years I've owned the SMART™ Native Jump saddle.

Hopefully, we will have many more years of razzing round cross country courses.”

SMART Customers review: "Super-pleased with our new SMART™ Pro Dressage saddle"


"We are super pleased with our new SMART Pro Dressage saddle. The first time we went to a competition with it we came third! At nearly 17 year old, 'Dude' is a little set in his ways but he is moving so much more freely in his new SMART Pro Dressage saddle."
