I love my Lovatt and Ricketts Sylvan saddle!

My Morgan mare is small (15h) and was hard to fit, and we tried practically everything on her.  Nothing fit her like the Sylvan, which fits her perfectly.  It does not restrict her shoulder movement, like almost everything else we tried did.  Riding her in the Sylvan allows me to ride and not think about keeping my balance.  The buffalo leather is soft and supple, and required no break-in time.  I’m extremely satisfied with my Sylvan!
