Their range of saddles offers unrivalled choice in quality, design and style for the discerning rider. There is also a special ‘design to order’ service, as well as manufacturing all models in a range of fittings from very narrow to extra wide. The Ideal saddle range was considerably extended in 2007, to include several new dressage models, which are now becoming some of the most popular saddles for serious riders.


A fairly new and already very popular model in the UK. Ideal state “ The tree in this saddle has been technologically designed to allow room for the muscle mass found at the thoracic part of the trapezius (base of wither)” …. so we can see that some serious thought has been put into the design of this excellent saddle.  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

A superb design of dressage saddle, which has been become a favourite with saddle fitters, due to the contemporary panel design which suits the well-schooled dressage horse. Nice deep seat and large front knee blocks make this a top seller in the UK.  Great value too.

A similar saddle to the Suzannah, but specifically made for the petite rider, with the tree having a narrower waist. Great English hand-made quality at a bargain price.

A modern lightweight close-contact single flap dressage saddle, with deep seat and finished with soft leather. Knee blocks applied to the flap, and soft wool-flocked panel

One of Ideal’s oldest models and still held in great esteem by riders in many countries.  A classic dressage saddle design, now built on a tree with a wider gullet to give a broader bearing surface, and with the benefit of large front blocks for rider comfort. Fabulous value.

An evolution of the original Jessica model, with an even fuller panel and larger bearing surface.  Also slightly larger kneerolls with decoratively stiched kneepads.


The newest jumping saddle in the small Ideal range, a neat traditional design with square cantle, and removable knee and calf blocks on velcro mounts.  Ample flocked panel and saddletree well suited to the high-withered horse.

A very smart looking jumping saddle, with well padded flaps and soft kneepads. Velcro removeable thigh blocks to suit the individual rider’s leg position.  A great saddle for the cross-country rider, hand-made in England, but at a fantastic price.

A good simple saddle, at a very reasonable price, featuriuring a broad panel area, cupped knee blocks and Velcro adjustable back blocks. Our saddler states that This model is best suited to the Throughbred type horse.  Also available as an Eventing Monoflap saddle.

A close-contact  jumping saddle, with blocks on the outside of the flaps, with ornate stitching to the flaps.  Wool flocked, and available in many sizes, including template fit.

A modern monoflap saddle developed in conjunction with top riders to fulfil the need for closeness to the horse but without compromising on fit, and has a close contact panel.The tree has a flat rake cantle for the more open seat, ideal for X-Country and with a free swinging girthing system it allows fitting flexibility. It comes in luxurious all covered Mocha hide with matching girth and leathers.
