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 thus The Arabian Saddle Company was born.

“I never imagined riding could be so comfortable”

Originally, my only concern in looking for a saddle was finding one that fit my sensitive Arabian and would not cause any discomfort in my horse when ridden. I tried a bunch of saddles at the Arabian Horse Show and knew as soon as I sat in the Ellipse that it was the saddle I wanted. When I learned that Steve would come and fit my horse and offered a trial, I was sold. The first time I rode my Arabian in the Ellipse saddle, I could have ridden for hours! It is the most comfortable saddle I have ever been in. My husband thought I was exaggerating until he tried it and couldn’t believe how comfortable it was! Unfortunately, I was riding in his western saddle and had to cut our ride short! The Ellipse is akin to riding atop soft pillows; I never imagined riding could be so comfortable. More importantly, I feel secure no matter what crosses our path. No more uneven rubbing and no more tender spots on my horses back, no matter how long the ride, or how often I ride. This saddle, because of the quality, and because of the care and concern that both Steve and Janet have for you and your horse, is worth every single penny. I can’t imagine riding in anything else ever again!
