Paypal’s Pay in 3

We can offer you Paypal’s Pay in 3.

So (for example) with the deposit paid with an order and then the balance paid in 3, this will spread the total cost over 4 payments. Timescale is 4-6 weeks (to make the saddle) between the first and second payment and one month between the second, third & fourth, these being the Pay in 3 payments. The maximum you can Pay in 3 is £2000 so we will need to bear this in mind when planning your pattern of payments.

Ideal Sienna Dressage Saddle – a rising star!

…..and the word is spreading!!!

The Sienna Dressage Saddle is a brilliant & ground breaking new design from Ideal. The Sienna combines a wide and forgiving fit for a well-muscled and/or bigger boned, broader shouldered type of horse with a narrow twist & seat for the rider. The design also puts the rider in a fantastic position, over the horse’s motion, not behind it.


Developed by Rob Lugsdin, the owner of Ideal, chief designer and the force behind this successful company. This saddle will suit professionals and amateurs alike. The word is spreading! 


We currently have several Sienna’s on order for clients, so more feedback in the weeks ahead!

We recently send this one to Jackie in the USA:

Jackie says: THE SADDLE IS AWSOME!…..and then went on to say ” I’m very pleased with the feel of the saddle, it puts me in a great position. My horse seems to be moving freer through his shoulder already since wearing his new saddle, and he’s very particular about saddle fit! It’s also as beautiful as it could possibly be!!”

“So in love with the saddle”

“Because I’m so in love with the saddle please see pic attached. Thank you again.”

The pic is of her Palomino for whom Julie, from Australia, wanted a Suzannah. Julie already had a Suzannah, a black one, which she loves too but wanted a brown one for her Palomino in a colour a close match to an image she sent to us.

This is the pic re colour that Julie sent to us:

and here is her saddle!

“In the flesh”, the colours are almost identical!
