RYDER JUMP SADDLES
An Introduction To Our Jump Saddles
The jump saddles you see pictured below are our most popular current range of saddles at present. We do however keep all of our old patterns from the past so can still make those models. All of our saddles can be mixed and matched, so you can have the blocks from one saddle and the seat from another for example. Our jump saddles are also all available with bespoke or velcro blocks. The options are endless so if you don't see what you are looking for please call or email to discuss further as at Ryder we know horses and people come in all shapes and sizes.
One of our most stunning saddles ever…. This saddle has all the features and ride-ability of a french saddle. However as with all our saddles the utmost care and thought has gone into the design of this saddle. The panel is designed to ensure the saddle fits your horse in the best possible way to give the best performance. The features of this saddle are a close contact seat, blocked knee pad and a Double SS wool flocked panel which is unique to Ryder. The concept and design of this saddle is to put the rider as close to the horse as possible. The saddle pictured is made in French calf and pig print hide, the full Ryder leather range is available.
This saddle is the monoflap version of the Riveria saddle. It has all the same features as the standard Riveria - The panel is designed to ensure the saddle fits your horse in the best possible way to give the best performance. The features of this saddle are a close contact seat, blocked knee pad and a Double SS panel which is unique to Ryder. The concept and design of this saddle is to put the rider as close to the horse as possible and to allow the horse plenty of freedom and movement through its back. The saddle pictured is made in full French chestnut calf, the full Ryder leather range is available.
This is the perfect flat seated saddle for riders who want the ultimate close contact feel. It also enables the rider to ride with a shorter leg position as the flap is very forward cut. The panel of this saddle is designed to allow for freedom in the horses shoulder while a wide channel allows plenty of room for the horses spine .This saddle is now available as a monoflap and a dual flap saddle. The front knee roll is gently moulded in soft leather allowing you to be more flexible on the position of your leg. Finished in best quality french calfskin or a solid leather for longer wear in your choice of colour and trim.
The Saywell Jump saddle is a traditional jumping saddle designed by Andrew Saywell in conjunction with Ryder Saddles. Andrew is an accredited coach with the British Show Jumping Association, jumped internationally for Great Britain and has produced horses to a high level including Roulette who Ben Maher competed at the Beijing Games 2008. www.jakesaywell.com
The Saywell Saddle is made on a traditional French tree giving perfect balance at all times. The panels are our own SS panels and are flocked with Jacobs wool to really allow the horse complete shoulder freedom and flexibility at all times. The Saywell saddle has a small roll on the panel and is available as a duel flap saddle. All bespoke Ryder options are available.
The Bellagio tree is a slimmer and flatter tree than most other jump saddles are made on giving the rider a close contact feel. The Knee rolls are unique to the Bellagio and mould perfectly to the rider’s leg. They are not as forward cut as the Trophée rolls are so are more suitable for someone who likes to jump with a slightly longer leg or someone who is not so tall. The panel is designed to allow for freedom in the horses shoulder while a wide channel allows plenty of room for the horses spine. The girth straps on the monoflap version are placed just behind the point of the tree and the rear strap is a balance strap. Available as a mono or dual flap saddle and in any finish of your choice.
The Volante saddle gives a safe and secure feel to the rider. It has a forward moulded flap that sits over the knee block and provides plenty of room for the rider’s leg and security for the rider. This saddle is available in both a mono and dual flap. In the Mono version the girth system lies neatly between the flap and the sweat flap allowing us to position the girth straps as per the horse’s requirements. On the dual flap saddle the rear roll is placed on the flap and on the Mono version it is visible on the outside flap. This saddle has 100% pure wool flocked panels. Available in 15 inch to 19 inch size. Images show both the mono and dual flap model.
The Virage is one of our most popular jumping saddles to date with both the professional, amateur and child rider. People love how secure the front and rear exterior blocks make them feel. The close contact flap and low profile panel allows for the rider to have great communication through the seat with the horse. The anatomically shaped thigh and calf blocks can be positioned according to the length of leg of the rider. This saddle is also available as a dual flap. As with all our saddles this can be fully customised in a choice of leather, colour, piping and stitching and is available as both a mono and a dual flap saddle.
The Zara saddle is the ideal saddle for the rider that wants to do a little bit of everything - jumping, pleasure rides, cross country, hunting and schooling. The Zara is also a prefect saddle for junior riders and people who are shorter in the leg. It is made on a slightly deeper tree to offer security and comfort, it is a dual flap saddle and has moulded knee rolls as well as a rear block to keep the riders leg in a secure position. The Zara features 100% pure new wool panels and is made on a traditional tree. It is a very neat saddle with a short panel so is also ideal for shorter backed horses.
