How does SIGNUM help you decide on the right saddle?
You are asking yourself "Which horse saddle suits me?" When it comes to saddles, we accompany you from the first try on to the finished saddle. Our mobile saddle service offers the possibility of a non-binding saddle fitting. You will have the opportunity to try out our different saddle models on your horse in motion. You can test which saddle concept, which saddle model, and in particular which options for the seat and which knee rolls are optimal for you and your horse.
Our service offer gives you the opportunity to get to know our saddle concept without obligation. Regardless of whether you would like to buy a new or used saddle, whether it should be a confection ready-made saddle, a partial custom-made saddle or an individual custom-made saddle.
Custom-made saddles for horse & rider
According to our philosophy, these are the criteria for a good riding saddle: The saddle construction and the individual saddle components of a custom-made saddle are made according to the anatomy and needs of the horse. The lightweight saddle tree is built in individual size and shape to fit the horse's back. The adjustable gullet plate sits high above the ram's instep. The gullet width and the angle above the ribcage can be adapted to the horse and changed at any time. This means that saddle panels can be aligned parallel and to the horse's back at any time and lie evenly on the horse's back from front to back. The flat and soft saddle panels have a filling of shaped panels or upholstery wool that is adapted to the horse's back and the saddle lies close to the horse.
The concept of our custom-made saddles allows the rider to create an individual composition for a seat tailored to the rider: this includes the seat size (measured in inches), the shape of the seat surface, the seat width and the seat depth. Furthermore, the choice of the thimble on the rider's leg. Of course, the individual design must not be missing from a custom-made saddle. You can choose the shape of the saddle flap, the colours and combinations of the leather, decorative stitching or individual embroidery, as well as rivets or sparkling decorative stones as highlights.
Which saddle fits my horse?
When looking for the right saddle for your horse, our custom-made saddle concept offers countless possibilities. The construction of the custom-made saddle is specially adapted to the needs of the horse. It does not matter whether the saddle is made for a Spanish horse, a pony or a cold blood. Every saddle is as individual as your horse itself. With a new custom-made saddle, the special features of the horse can be taken into account individually. The individual elements of the saddle are made to fit the horse's back and the position of the saddle. In this way, solutions can be found for "difficult" backs or existing problems, regardless of the saddle model.
The large contact surface with the soft padding offers a pressure distribution that is gentle on the horse's back, even for particularly sensitive horses. Due to the adjustable gullet plate and ribbed stirrup bars, the saddle panels fit narrow as well as wide horses. When the measurements are correctly adjusted, the padding always lies parallel to the horse's back and provides an even distribution of pressure on the horse's back from front to back when riding.
The saddle tree is individually shaped and opens in the front area over the shoulder. This provides solutions for wide horses with a strong shoulder as well as for horses with a lot of swing, horses with a short back or high withers. For horses with high withers, a specially shaped gullet plate at the front allows sufficient space high above the withers. The great spine freedom, withers freedom and shoulder freedom offer the horse maximum freedom of movement.
The extensive adjustment options provide ample room for changes in young horses or changes over time due to illness, training or the horse's age.
To find out which saddle fits your horse best, you can test all our models on your horse during a saddle fitting. You benefit from our many years of experience in custom saddle construction and we are at your side for all questions regarding the right saddle for your horse.
