    Hi, I’m Ken Lyndon-Dykes from Saddleworld, and I want to talk about all-purpose saddles today. Now, that can mean almost anything, say, all-purpose, general purpose, eventing or a saddle you can use for lots of different things. An all-purpose saddle is exactly what it says, you can do a bit of jumping, you can do a bit of flat work, you can do a bit of hacking. But like anythi...

    Hi, I’m Ken Lyndon-Dykes from Saddleworld and today we are going to talk about dressage saddles. Generally speaking, dressage saddles look like this. Sometimes they have skin on the seat and front other times they have soft hide, or not, it really doesn't matter. The thing about a dressage saddle that’s so important is that it’s very straight cut and allows...

    Hi, I'm Ken Lyndon-Dykes from Saddleworld. We will be looking at saddles today and various fittings but before we think about that, why do you need your saddle checked and what effect is it going to have on your horse? Now all of us have seen horses where you go into a stable, with a saddle in your arms and it runs to the back of the stable because it’s thinking ‘oh b...

    Hi, I’m Ken Lyndon-Dykes from Saddleworld and today we are looking at jumping saddles, some of which will be close contact which are much favoured nowadays and others that are semi-close contact. What do we mean by that? Well, first of all, if we are to look at perhaps one of the most famous jumping saddles in the world which is the Nelson Pessoa saddle. This has a thin panel...

    My name's Robert Lemieux. These are my pads the I have designed. They're Australian Merino lambskin. The great features of Merino lambskin are, the old Horseman used to say, they wick away the sweat and there's nothing better for a horse’s back than good old lambskin. The fibres hold 40 times their own weight in moisture. So of course, they keep the back very dry an...

    Hi, I'm Ken Lyndon-Dykes from Saddleworld. I've been asked to come and check a pony called Rio and it's Jane’s daughter, Chloe, who rides this pony. I've been told it's been very difficult to fit. So let's have a look to see what we think. Hi Jane, looking very pink today. How old is Rio? ‘Shes 11’ I do a lot of ponies and they often a...

    I’m from Saddle World and I’ve come to check the saddle today of this particular horse. He’s five years old, but I've already been told has changed a lot in the last year or so and of course, I would expect that with a five-year-old. Between four and seven they can be very big changes. Also in this particular case, the rider has changed. She was 13, she is now 15...

    Hi, I'm Charlotte Platt and we're home in West Sussex. One of the most important things for me is my saddle and equipment. We have their backs and settles check often and it's a really important thing. Today, with me is Joe Dylan, my saddle fitter. Okay, Charlotte. Have you been having any problems with this horse? Yeah, she gets quite sore in the back, she'...
