A second SMART saddle purchase - ensured comfort for every horse!

 

 

 

I have ridden in my SMART GP saddle for 6 years and it is as good today as the day I bought it. It has been used on everything from my number one horse, a 16.3hh chunky warmblood, to our little Highland my grand-daughter rode and a heavy Irish Draught cross. 

 

I am such a fan of SMART saddles; my horses move so freely, the saddles do not need reflocking or gullet bars changing and they adapt to fit different shapes of horses so are ideal for youngsters, or if like me, you have different horses of different shapes to ride. 

 

I have found SMART Advisors to be wonderful. The Advisor who came to me was patient and happy to give advice over the phone until I got the hang of the fitting - it is not difficult once you understand the principles. When I bought my first SMART saddle, I was taught how to fit it to my different horses and I was pleased to see the same fitter again when I decided to purchase a second SMART saddle. 

 

recently decided to buy a second SMART PRO GP saddle for a finer 16.3hh KWPN warmblood because I wanted both horses to have the comfort of a SMART saddle whoever was riding out with me – with each of my riding friends commenting that they do not realise that they are riding in a treeless saddle! 

 

I meet quite a few old-school riders who do not understand the principle of SMART saddles and it concerns me how closed their minds are. If nothing else they should consider the advantages: a flexible, soft, kind saddle which fits perfectly whichever horse you ride and the freedom from saddle fitters! 

 

I am not a competitive rider, more a happy hacker these days who may dabble in dressage occasionally.
