Emma Hyslop has become the latest high profile event rider to select a Sue Carson Saddle for the top horses in her busy Leicestershire yard and she joins a growing number of high profile international riders working with Sue Carson Saddles.
Leaving a very successful commercial career to focus on her passion for eventing, Emma became a professional rider three years ago and now has a strong string of horses to produce and compete for a variety of owners.
As a British Dressage accredited trainer, she also loves passing on her experience to others and has a practical approach that sees her pupils progress confidently up through the grades.
Explaining her enthusiasm for Sue Carson Saddles, Emma said: “I was initially attracted by their enviable good looks, then when I sat on one, I was impressed with how incredibly comfortable they are. However I’m like any other rider, always looking for increased performance and better marks, so it was the design excellence, manufacturing quality and fabulous fitting service that really convinced me.”
A Grand Prix Special dressage saddle has been fitted to each of Emma’s two three-star horses Uzermie 56 and Waldo III and along with a focus on qualifying horses for all of this season’s age classes and she is aiming Uzermie 56 at Burghley, which will be a debut for both horse and rider at CCI 4* level.
After fitting Emma’s new Grand Prix Special dressage saddle, Sue Carson said: “We are pleased to have Emma on board with us, as she is very enthusiastic about the product and has a good depth of horses and clients. We are really looking forward to working with her and her clients."
