Safety First: The world’s first fully deformable jump saddle

Riding hats, body protectors, air jackets and frangible pins: all modern safety measures developed to reduce the risk of injury in the event of a fall - but what about your saddle?

The patented 100% flexible SMART saddle range responds to demand for safer saddles.

Pioneering SMART™ FLEXTech™ technology offers unrivalled safety for both horse and rider, thanks to its unique, fully deformable structure; constructed of multiple layers of high density materials, the SMART™ saddle range contains no rigid parts to cause additional harm in the event of a horse fall.  Whereas the frame of a solid and inflexible traditional saddle poses a real risk of exacerbating injury, particularly in the instance of a rotational fall, the compressible layers of a SMART™ saddle will flex and absorb impact, reducing trauma and injury. Important for any rider, whether you’re an elite eventer or a happy hacker, the advent of the RigidFree™ saddle offers remarkable levels of safety for all equestrians.


The fully deformable SMART™ saddle will flex and absorb impact,
reducing trauma and injury in the event of a fall.

Safety fears are strongest in the sport of eventing, where the frequency of falls is highest and where 1 in every 520 cross country starters can be expected to sustain a serious injury from falling*. The SMART PRO Jump saddle offers an inimitable option for riders looking for a premium jump saddle with safety benefits. Designed in conjunction with 4* Event rider, Simon Grieve, the SMART PRO Jump saddle exceeds all expectations of a modern jumping saddle: lightweight, close contact and fully adjustable to any horse that you ride. The SMART™ PRO Jump saddle allows flexion of the back and freedom of movement, enabling your horse to perform in balance, encouraging healthy back muscle development for long term soundness and continued optimum performance.

Not just for eventers, the revolutionary SMART™ FLEXTech™ technology is found in every saddle in the SMART™ saddle range; from pony club to dressage and everything in between. Handmade in the UK out of premium leathers for luxury feel and durability, the full range of SMART™ saddles are available to try through our nationwide network of Approved Advisors. Try-before-you-buy rental service as well as 0% payment plan options over 3, 6 or 12 months also available.
