Tradition and technology

It is no coincidence that the very finest quality saddles are made from traditionally selected hides, laminated wooden trees and assembled by skilled craftsmen. However modern shock absorbing, lightweight hi-tech materials and memory foams are now incorporated for specific purposes to improve the fit and comfort of saddles.

The team at The National Saddle Centre are constantly working to enhance their own knowledge and keep abreast of technological developments such as the production of the pliance pressure system which measures the dynamic pressure distribution between the saddle and the horse using a thin elastic sensor mat and the Genesis tri-form tree that forms the basis of Albion’s unique fitting program.

We have undergone extensive training and are able to make major alterations to many of the saddles we provide without sending them back to the manufacturer.
