The Marple Working Hunter Saddle…
This Working Hunter Saddle is suitable for showing and working hunter classes but with the comfort and knee support for everyday riding.
Off the peg price £999.00. Custom build price £1099.00. UK saddle fittings can be booked at a cost of £100 + fuel expenses.
This saddle is “covered all over” in beautiful, soft, English cow hide.
Designed for use in the working hunter ring, this saddle is straight cut to show off the horse’s shoulder and has knee rolls for stability when jumping, hunting or hacking.
The Marple has neat “Pencil” knee and thigh rolls but can be made with just the knee roll or totally plain for an ultra neat look. If you would like 2 different knee rolls, of different sizes, on Velcro, that option is £100.00 extra. This offers great flexibilty in being able to switch from a smaller neat knee roll or even no knee roll at all for showing, to a larger one for other disciplines such as Dressage.
We realise that not all our customers wish to own a saddle for every discipline they partake in, so the saddle shown, first picture, has longer flaps to show it’s potential for Dressage too. We will make the flaps the usual length for customers who do not wish to use this saddle for this discipline.
The Marple has flocked panels and we offer close contact Latex foam panels too.
This saddle has a thigh pad on top of the the flap for those of you who prefer that look and want the extra security. It can be made without this for a plainer look if you wish.
This saddle has a stitch on the knee pad but this can be left plain if requested.
Round cantle or a square cantle is available (choose from drop down list above).
Point and balance straps as standard.
Suede options are available on request.
