AH Saddles Ltd supply high quality, traditionally handmade, English leather saddles. Our mission is to achieve an exceptional fit for the modern horse and pony, and our range of saddles are designed by Andrea Hicks who has specialised in difficult to fit breeds for over 20 years.
To create an exceptional saddle demands great care in the selection of materials and components, and skilful craftsmanship in its construction. Fundamental to the correct fit of a saddle is the design of the tree, which must follow the shape of a horse's back, and so a carefully selected range of tree shapes suited to the specialist fitting needs of wider and sometimes flatter breeds underpins our designs. We combine this with panels that are predominantly close contact as we have found this provides better all-round stability on wider breeds, and allows the rider to feel close to the horse. These panels are all wool flocked to allow adjustment to fit you and your horse. At AH Saddles we prefer wool flocking as it is breathable. This natural property of the fibre helps keep a horse's back cooler and provides a much more comfortable ride for both horse and rider. Our saddles also incorporate four strap girthing to further aid fitting these breeds.
