The English Saddle is a saddle designed specifically for the equestrian disciplines of hunting and dressage. It differs from the Western or Australian saddle in that it has less padding and a horn, which is absent in these saddles.

 

The horse's movement is unfettered, with stirrup leathers or girths running to the front of the saddle and not over the highest part of the back as in some Western styles.

 

If you are an English rider, or just want to immerse yourself in the style of riding then this is the saddle for you. Featuring a deep seat but still allowing freedom of movement for your horse, it is made from good quality leather that is soft and flexible, ensuring comfort for both horse and rider.

 

What type of material was used in the construction of the English Saddle?

English Saddle for sale in English riding style. Animal leather is used for all panels, seats, and flaps. Woolen flock is still desirable on higher quality saddles. Synthetic materials including foam are used on lower-priced saddles.

 

Built on a solid tree, the English saddle is based on the same four basic points of support as the Western saddle but differs in its shape and size. An English saddle is comfortable to ride in once the rider has acclimated to its bulkier design, which can sometimes feel clumsy when compared to a Western saddle.

 

A traditional English saddle is a firm seat, with very little padding. The double rigging allows adjustment of the seat position with two sets of side girths and two sets of stirrup leathers. Because of the double rigging and solid tree, English saddles are often more comfortable for some horses than western saddles. They come in both jumping models and dressage models.
