Felicity Coulthard Endorses The Saddle Company

UK based disabled dressage rider Felicity Coulthard, is endorsing the Saddle Company who have supplied her with their Verona Dressage Saddle. Felicity suffered a career-threatening fall during training over 2 years ago after which her elbow was held together for 12 months by a plate being bolted into place. 18 year-old Felicity told us " this along with my cerebral palsy has made the right hand side of my body weak. Unfortunately, this has meant that over the past 12 months I have had to virtually learn to ride again!"

The Saddle Company offered their support to Felicity after learning about her fight to get back into the saddle. "The Saddle Company have been brilliant," said Felicity. "The Verona Dressage Saddle that has been supplied to me was specially made with detachable front and back knee rolls which I can alter to assist my leg position. What I really like most about the Verona is the soft feel which makes me feel closer to the horse than I have felt with other saddles. In fact, I feel it has improved my overall balance and riding position".

The Saddle Company is small privately owned company designing and manufacturing saddles in Walsall, England. Using David Johnson's "Tree Tec" synthetic trees, The Saddle Company produces a full range of saddles of superb quality at very affordable prices. The Tree Tec tree in all of their saddles carries a 10-year guarantee. Therefore, using a mix of leather and synthetic materials as well as an all-synthetic range, their saddles are certainly designed to pass the test of time. “The materials that the Saddle Company use produce a quality saddle that far out-shines others saddles that cost two or three times the price” explains Felicity who went on to say “ everyone who has tried my Verona saddle has loved it. In fact most of them gone to the Saddle Company to replaced their existing saddles!”

The Saddle Company, have worked very closely with saddle fitters, retailers and riders to produce a range that meets with all their requirements. As they are also keen riders, they know how important fit and comfort are to both rider and horse and this has been paramount throughout the development and design of the range. They listen to their customers and take their feedback very seriously.
