Ideal Ramsay on an H & C Tree

Having recently posted a “Saddle Story” from Tasmania with some lovely photos of two ponies who had Ramsays built on an H & C tree, I thought a few more words on the merits of this saddle/tree combination would be helpful!

To look at, you can’t tell the difference between a 100% Ramsay and one built on an H & C tree. They look the same and the differences are subtle, but significant. The Ramsay on the H & C tree offers a deeper, wider seat and unlike the pure Ramsay, can be used for prolonged periods. It is very comfortable for the horse/pony, is supportive for the rider and crucially accommodates judges!!!

Two very individual specs!

….made for customers in UK! Just a couple of examples of what can be done!

Firstly an Ideal Gazelle for a big man and a big horse. This is a 19″, deepest seat version of this comfortable & secure saddle in black and finished with white piping & stitching and silver D rings & fittings. In addition, it has knee blocks on velcro, longer flaps than standard, deeper rear gussets, wider front leg gussets, reinforced point pockets and additional felt lining to the panel.

Secondly. we have an Ideal Event Standard Seat, 17″ in London Tan with pale blue piping, including the stirrup leather keeper. This saddle has a comfort seat, narrower twist and slightly deeper seat than standard and is fitted with point & balance straps.
