Bespoke model.

Ergonomically designed with both the horse and rider in mind, made from premium materials.

Craftsman-made in France for a unique saddle that combines French saddlery techniques with the very latest advances in biomechanics.

Put together your own saddle to suit:

  • Your needs,
  • Your body shape and that of your horse,
  • Your technical and aesthetic requirements.

Each saddle produced is unique and designed especially for you, from the specific technical features right down to your choice of colours for the leather.

Product characteristics:

Bovine leather, carefully selected from the very best French tanneries.

Custom-made wooden tree from the Arçonnerie Française (10-year guarantee).

The size of the gullet is designed to fit your horse's withers and shoulders perfectly whatever its body shape, including draught horses, or those with high or low withers.

A seat to suit the horse as well as its rider:

  • Flat, deep or semi-deep
  • Made from latex foam (supple, comfortable seat with maximum shock absorption) or high density (firmer seat).

Special shaped panels to:

  • Mould to the shape of your horse's back,
  • Help the horse build strength in the back muscles (clear topline, free shoulders, no pressure points).

The flaps are shaped to fit the rider's position and the length of their leg, whatever the discipline.

Front knee rolls help the rider to balance without impeding the leg.

Technical panels comprising several layers of felt and latex and/or high density foam, custom made to fit your horse for maximum cushioning and excellent durability.

Pre-stretched leather girth straps for maximum durability.

Hand-stitched for strength.


Depending on your requirements, it may take several months to make your saddle.

Depending on your location, the saddle will be personally delivered and fitted or sent via carrier (free shipping).

A compulsory measuring appointment must be made (free service up to 100 km from the workshop – tours may be organised for longer distances).



    • From €3,750 (trail type saddles)
    • From €4,500 (sport/all-purpose saddles)

    Additional costs for optional extras will be added to these base prices.

    Artisan pledge :

    - Free panel alteration for 2 years after purchasing the saddle to ensure it continues to fit young horses.

    - Saddles are numbered to ensure after-sales support, service and guarantees still apply even if the saddle is sold.
