The Ellipse™ Dressage Saddle


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.
