  • Classic Show Saddle

    This new saddle is straight-cut to help accentuate the horse or pony’s shoulder, but has a subtle knee roll to help keep the rider in the ideal show position. The low cantle helps provide a flatter seat for a neater appearance, with the close profile of the saddle helping to show off and enhance the overall picture which is so important in the world of showing. The Classic Show Saddle has been developed with leading show rider and producer Katy Carter, to provide the perfect show saddle for both pony and rider. Says Katy: “The new Black Country Classic Show Saddle is simply the best saddle available for show ponies. Soft leather makes it comfortable to ride in from day one and the design and craftsmanship help to put the rider in the correct position, to produce the perfect winning picture.”

    The Black Country Classic Show Saddle is available in a range of width fittings, sizes 14in to 18in, colour dark brown.

A wide selection of trees and panel options allow the fit to be adapted for all types of horse.

  • Hartley Show

    Endorsed by show pony producer Kate Carter. The Hartley show saddle has become a huge success. Designed with a considerable amount of input from the showing world, emphasis has been on creating a saddle that has a close profile on the horse or pony.

The low cantle gives a flatter seat allowing flexibility in a multitude of rider sizes.

This saddle does not have a knee block, giving a very neat appearance from the from.

The style of this saddle also lends itself well as a general purpose saddle but with a flatter seat allowing more room. Working particularly well on cobs and native breeds.
