We understand. Buying, selling or having a saddle fitted isn’t easy.

Choice? Too much or too little. So many questions but where do you go for the answers? As riders ourselves, we’ve arrived at the same hurdles.

We understand that every rider and every horse is unique. So we make it personal.

We’re the people to help you get it right. To make you feel confident with your saddle. And as a result, feel more confident in the saddle. We also save you time and hassle. Because we know, like us, you’d rather be riding.

Our Story

Started in 2004, Saddles Direct was born after years of trials and tribulations when trying to purchase preowned saddles for her own horses, Sarah Lavelle Huxley reached the end of her tether with poor advice and online marketplaces.

Before Saddles Direct, the only way to purchase a saddle was brand new from a saddlery, or second hand thorough risky auction sites and private sales.

In the event that something went wrong, the customer had virtually no comeback and often ended up out of pocket and feeling abandoned.

Roll on almost 20 years, Saddles Direct is now recognised as the UK’s biggest saddle retailer, offering unrivalled choice and customer satisfaction.

"My greatest horsey achievement is probably re training a beautiful racehorse called Herbie, we learned so much together and eventually made it to the regionals and just got pipped making it to the BD nationals."
