Our Saddles

High quality and traditionally handmade English leather saddles.

Saddle Range

Sapphire Saddles 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 is designed by Andrea Hicks of AH Saddles Ltd. in Great Britain, who has specialized in difficult-to-fit breeds for over twenty years.

Skillfully Crafted

Creating 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. A carefully designed range of tree shapes, specific to the needs of wider, shorter, and sometimes flatter-backed native breeds, underpins the AH designs.

We combine this with panels that are predominantly close contact, providing better stability on wider breeds and allowing the rider a softer connection with the horse. The panels are wool-flocked: a sustainable material allowing adjustability and comfort for both you and your horse while providing natural shock absorption. Each saddle is fitted with a four-strap girthing system to further aid in the achievement of the perfect fit.
