Ryder Saddles are British saddle makers who have been making, retailing and fitting top quality made to measure saddles for over 30 years. All of their saddles are hand made on an individual basis by one of their qualified saddle makers. They understand that people and horses come in all different shapes and sizes and most of our saddles can be made to suit your individual requirements. They fit and make saddles for Olympians to pleasure riders.
Ryder Saddles are made from the highest-grade premium leather, ensuring that your saddle will last for many years. They use only 100% British wool from Jacobs’s sheep, we never use synthetic wool as over time this will become compressed and ball up to cause pressure points.

A deep seated monoflap saddle with external blocks, the saddle is available in a full block and half block options. It is a lightweight monoflap saddle and incorporates the double SS panel which is a unique saddle design to Ryder. The panels are shaped in a way to allow the horse to work through his back and shoulders; there is a wide channel to ensure there is no tightness in that area and plenty of spine room.
This is the ideal saddle for horses that have shape to their wither but are very wide at the base of the wither. The saddle, even though made for wider horses, still maintains a narrow twist for the rider.
This Baroque saddle has been specifically developed by Ryder Saddles for the warmblood and other such types. It particularly suits Friesian horses. The tree has exceptionally short points so as not to impinge shoulder movement and cause the horse to curl back at the rider. Made especially for horses that are wider around the wither area but have shape in the wither area. The tree used in this saddle is unique to Ryder Saddles having been developed by Glen after seeing the issues affecting these type/shape of horses over the years. This saddle has a moulded knee roll for support and a medium to deep seat and puts the rider in perfect balance. The girth straps have a balance strap (V girth) to help to keep the saddle secure for the warmblood's big movement. Available in all the Ryder options and a dual or mono flap model.
