The Girth Strap arrangement is the traditional "V" military system, adjustable front-rear, but modified for extra safety

The saddles can be made in different colours; the cost will depend upon the colours required

 

 

 

If you give us the task we will endeavour to obtain a pattern or use yours to reproduce an item to your specification.  Price will depend upon the research required and the complexity of the job.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Saddle covers can be made which make a normal saddle look like a medieval or English Civil War Saddle. For pictures of Saddle Covers please go to the English Civil War Page. Price is £180

Saddles
These pictures show medieval Saddles made on a Universal Pattern Army Saddle Tree, very strong and very safe.  The pommel and cantle can be designed as required, and the depth of the flap can be varied to suit the horse.
Price from £550 dependent upon embellishments

The Saddles are built on a British Army UP Tree which is tough and can take weight. They also tend to fit a wide variety of horses
