Horseback Riding All-Purpose Saddle 16.5
Filtered by reviews Loading reviews…

it is very unsafe for you and your horse to buy a saddle that isn't properly fitted, using something like this could be very damaging to your horse's back and potentially give them lifelong back problems. PLEASE please get a saddle properly fitted by a professional saddler!!!!!


When it arrived, it looked amazing! My daughter and I were really excited to put it on her pony and see how it fits. It was pretty big, we had to put our girth on the tightest for it to somewhat stay in place. Her pony is 13.2hh and I thought it would do the job as she was doing very light schooling and hacking, I was wrong. The cantle of the saddle started to gain little crack in the synthetic leather and the stirrup leathers would not function(I couldn't get them to adjust as WAY too stiff). I am a professional rider and expected better than what we received. I do not recommend this product as it is a waist of money.


way cheaper than other shops but as good as 2000 euro saddles

Great Saddle -if not faulty!

Good value stop-gap/spare saddle for light hacking/ warm up/dreadful weather with flexible tree. Easy to clean and nice look, liked the material. Downside, tried 3. Issues -top layer of right saddle flap wrinkles up on use and then digs in knee when riding - obviously a manufacturing issue as left saddle flap didn't do it. Had this happen on two saddles. The other (3rd) saddle had stitching coming undone on first ride at front of right panel just below point of tree. Pity, as very comfy for horse and rider.

A great saddle.

I bought this saddle for my 16.3hh gelding, he is only 5 and I t hought this would be a good saddle to start training him with, I was a bit unsure because it wasn't a well known brand but it looks very smart on him.


Initially I thought this Saddle was small, but once you sit on it its absolutely perfect. Gives a very good grip and is extremely comfortable. I would definitely recommend this Saddle to everyone. Have been using it since 4 weeks now, and have used it for four hours straight at times. The quality of the stirrups is also very good.

Der Sattel ist echt super er passt meinem pony perfekt. Dascsitz gefüll ist auch super

Hammer, nur toll

Ein toller Sattel war echt überrascht. Hammer Sitzgefühl. Tolle Qualität. Weiter so

Sehr schöner Sattel, leider zu klein.

Ich hab diesen Sattel für mein Pferd kaufen wollen. Als er ankam war ich positiv von der Optik überrascht. Sehr gut verarbeitet und sieht hochwertig aus. Preis Leistung top! Leider ist er zu klein für mein Pferd gewesen, was der schade ist. Kammer zu weit und lag komplett auf. Weiterhin sind die Schultern sehr eng gewesen. Ich denke, es wird ein Pferd geben dem er top passt. Ausprobieren lohnt sich. Deshalb, würde ich den Sattel trotzdem das er nicht gepasst hat weiterempfehlen!

sehr schöner Sattel, passt aber leider nicht

Sehr schöner Sattel, leider ist das Kopfeisen nicht austauschbar. Somit passt er nicht auf unser Pony und kann auch vom Sattler nicht passend umgebaut werden. Sehr schade, ich hätte ihn sehr gern behalten. Selbst dem Sattler hat er von der Qualität her gefallen. Die Augen meiner Tochter haben gleich geleuchtet, als sie ihn das erste Mal gesehen hat. Super Preis und schnelle Lieferung :) Durch bessere Verpackung könnte er noch besser geschützt werden. Er hatte bei Ankunft einen kleinen Kratzer am Sattelkranz, weil er nur in Plastiktüte ohne Schaumstoff oder Luftpolsterschutz geliefert wurde und der Karton eine Ecke aufgerissen war. Hätte ihn aber trotz der kleinen Macke behalten.


Calidad precio genial
