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.

The Arabian Saddle Company was very helpful and easy to work with!

I would encourage anyone struggling to fit a wide-backed, broad shouldered horse to try the Ellipse by Lovatt and Rickets. This saddle changed my cross-bred Friesian mare’s attitude completely, by freeing up her shoulders and relieving pressure points. Although she had always been ridden in an extra-wide saddle, it was not a hoop tree, and that made a crucial difference. She no longer stops after being asked to do lateral work and is willing to canter. The saddle is well made and immediately comfortable for the rider. Janet at The Arabian Saddle Company was very helpful and easy to work with.
