Custom Made Saddles 8

Yesterday Kent Saddlery completed a 30,000 km first service on my Kent Saddle, which is now 16 years old. Congratulations to Lyle and Helen Kent for producing a 100% Australian made saddle which has survived the harshest treatment – including being run over by a tandem wheel trailer. The saddle has never injured a horses back and never hurt a rider despite being tested on a large range of horses under extreme conditions.

Having tested my friends ‘Kent Saddle’ I was hooked and knew it was the perfect one to carry me safely and comfortably out on the trails. I have covered well over 1000km in my Kent Saddle and never get saddle sore. Fantastic purchase, worth every cent, and still looks brand new.

Receiving one of your beautifully handcrafted saddles has been a long-time dream since using them on Killarney Station in the Northern territory some years ago …. It’s been a couple of months now, and I couldn’t be happier with the fit. In between rides it lives in the lounge-room (As all good saddles should!). Thank you again so kindly ….
