MADE TO MEASURE SADDLES
Ryder saddles have been making made to measure saddles for thirty years and over time we have built up an impressive reputation for fitting saddles for those horses that don’t quite conform for ‘off the peg saddles', we fit all horses from thoroughbreds to Friesians, Andalusians to Haflingers, and even though we say so ourselves we have become quite good at it! This is because every saddle is individually made and we make sure that we use the correct tree type and panel size for your horse, this is the framework and foundations on which to build your saddle. Rider comfort is also important and we work hard to ensure that you the rider has a saddle that enhances your riding and makes you feel safe and secure.
We offer as standard a fully bespoke saddle making service, this is a truly customised experience that gives you the flexibility to personalise a saddle to your design. This ranges from the position of the knee rolls, the angle of the stirrup bars through to the colour of the leather or piping and even down to choosing the intricate detail such as the colour of the stitching. So now you can have a saddle made to match the rest of you and your horse’s attire or simply incorporate your favorite colour into your new made to measure saddle.
Ryder Saddles are still traditional saddle makers at heart and we know many of our clients want the benefits of a fully made to measure saddle fitting service but with a more classical look. We therefore carry a full range of leather, both in colour and leather type, as well as the piping (welting) and seaming available in any colour so you can make a choice which is unique to you. Ryder Saddles very rarely make two saddles the same!
