A saddle that fits you and your horse well
“Custom made” and “handcrafted” are terms used quite loosely at times. What does it mean to buy a handcrafted custom made Kent Saddle? It means the saddle is handmade in our workshop to suit the unique requirements of each individual customer.
We offer any combination of rough and smooth leather and a wide range of Saddle Options >
The customisation information required about horse and rider is detailed in our guide to Fitting A Saddle >
