Our stunning Florence saddles have been designed for those that need a little more knee roll without compromising the overall image in the show ring.
The saddle's most innovative feature is the removable knee blocks. As standard they come with a 1” knee block but you can purchase larger knee blocks giving even more support making it a perfectly versatile saddle ideal for Working Hunter … The front panel contours perfectly around the blocks giving the illusion of a perfectly straight cut saddle.
The tree’s are specifically for those broad, rotund show types making saddles that stay put, hard to find.
The saddle itself can be made in either full hide, full suede or a combination of both suede seat and knee rolls and hide panels.
The seat is memory foam & It is traditionally flocked with 100% lambswool, allowing for easy adjustment.
This benefits both horse and rider, as once a tree is determined to fit your horse and the saddle is made accordingly, the flocking can be adjusted to balance the seat from front to back ( for example: chair or bench seat), or it can balance a seat laterally that may be shifting off to one side. It can also alleviate pubic or seat bone pressure by rebalancing a seat that may not be perfect for a rider.
It can even make the saddle flaps feel more forward or more backward, depending on your need.
For the horse, flocking can do even more!
Most importantly it ensures even weight distribution over the surface of the saddle by keeping it level with consistent contact. This makes flocking the first and most accessible defence against pressure points and soreness caused by an ill fitting saddle.
But it goes beyond that! It allows a saddle to work for one horse much longer because it offers the flexibility to adjust the entire underside, as the horse changes. Flocking can also give you more flexibility in refitting a saddle from one horse to another, by adding or reducing wool where needed.

Perfect Ponies was born from my deep love of the humble horse and a passion for the Show Ring. My love affair started, as a young girl, obsessed with their kind and gentle nature, their wonderful calming scent and unconditional, precious friendship.
As a grown woman this developed into pursuing a career in farriery and surrounding myself in my love of all things ‘Equestrian’ … Our Brand has been developed by utilising my extensive experience and passion of biomechanics, gait analysis and comfort.
