With pro and amateur riders becoming more aware of saddle fit and the associated comfort for both horse and rider it’s hardly surprising that saddle manufacturers are now looking towards the Junior and younger rider market.

Buying a saddle is always a big investment but buying a saddle for a child is even bigger as the child grows up, so they grow out of their saddle. childeric 1

Innovative company Childéric Saddles are now offering junior riders (Under the age of 16 years) the opportunity to replace their Childéric saddle as they grow out of it for a brand new saddle at the cost of just £500.

The bespoke saddles are always fitted to both rider and horse, highlighting the importance of getting the perfect fit for both, so as the child grows, his or her proportions outgrow the design of the saddle, as Senior Saddle Technician Tricia Bracegirdle explains:

“As a mother I know how quickly children physically develop and also how expensive this is! For parents who invest in their children’s choice of sport, offering this new option gives them peace of mind that as, if and when their children outgrow their Childéric saddle, we will replace it with another completely bespoke saddle fitted specifically again to their child and pony”  

EWW looks forward to see the next generation of event riders out in their Childérics!
