Young Riders' Saddles

We at the National Saddle Centre like to think we have something for everyone. Working with our manufacturers, we believe we have the most complete range of saddles available for the next generation. Developed with children and their ponies we have saddles for pony clubbers and team members a like.


Cygnet Dressage

Cygnet Dressage This is a new approach to close contact performance for young riders and there is nothing like it for fit, feel or function. Sold exclusively at the National Saddle Centre and Martin Wilkinson Saddlers, its main features include:

  • Unique tree design enabling the rider to sit closer to the pony
  • Large bearing surface allowing better freedom of movement
  • Manufactured with Supplex leather flaps and buffalo hide seat and pads
  • Reducing the need for 'wearing in'
  • Knee blocks on Velcro which are interchangeable and movable ensuring
  • Correct positioning for any length of leg
  • Deep seat allowing greater support and security for the rider
  • Made in a variety of sizes and flap lengths tailored to your requirements

Also available is the Cygnet GP, which is a more sophisticated GP that really does improve the balance, and stability that leads to increased rider security and parental peace of mind.
