Albert Einstein 1897-1955

An Idea Forms:

In 1990 an idea germinated in the offices of Lovatt & Ricketts Saddles® Walsall England, a novel idea; a range of saddles designed specifically for the different activities enjoyed by the Arabian horse owner. Over many years we had built saddles for every breed and discipline owned and practiced by horse owners but never devoted a whole range for one particular breed of horse. During this particular period Stephen Lovatt, the managing director  of the company, had been spending the weekend with his very dear friend the well known and highly acclaimed Equestrian author Elwyn Hartley-Edwards and they paid a visit to a mutual acquaintance who owned a local Arabian stud. The conversation evolved regarding the difficulty of finding a good fitting saddle that was designed to accommodate the particular characteristics of the Arabian horse, so digesting this later the story unfolds.

The Ellipse dressage saddle not only fits my horse but is a dream to ride in as well!

I have an xwide quarter horse mare that is very difficult to fit.  Janet Lovett at the Arabian Saddle company was able to locate the Ellipse dressage saddle that not only fits my horse but is a dream to ride in as well.  And since it was made several years ago and had not been bought I got an excellent price.  The leather is so soft and supple too – no break in period.  My mare is moving beautifully in this saddle.  This is my 4th L&R saddle I have owned over the years and have never been disappointed.  I still have my L&R Elan jump saddle and it has held up so well.  The quality of these saddles is unsurpassed.  Working with Janet was a great experience – she went above and beyond to find me a saddle to fit.  I highly recommend reaching out to L&R Saddlery for your next saddle.
