A saddle pad
goes under the saddle to give more comfort to your horse. It distributes the pressure of the saddle even better, absorbs sweat to keep the leather clean and adds a soft layer between the horse’s back and the saddle to make riding extra comfortable for your horse. And of course, saddle pads are highly addictive and collectable. So lucky for you, we have a giant range of saddle pads in all sizes, shapes, cuts and colours available at Epplejeck. There’s the perfect saddle pad for you, your saddle and your horse in that range as well, we’re sure of it. Or maybe even like 10 perfect ones, if you believe that saddle pads should be living in herds.
Besides saddle pads, there’s also half pads
and therapeutic pads
which help relief the back and can be a temporary fix for ill-fitting saddles. If your saddle is fitting correctly, there’s no need for a half-pad. Half pads can however be a good solution if your horse is still growing or changing shape quickly. We do however advise to have a professional saddler come look at the horse and the saddle if you’re in doubt of the fit and whether you should use a half pad or not.
Girths, stirrups and more
Different saddle types call for different girth
types. Here at Epplejeck we have a girth for each saddle. Next to the typical short girths for dressage saddles and long girths for jumping or all purpose saddle, we also stock other girths – with fur, with rings for help reins or with belly guards. A saddle would of course also not be complete without stirrups
and stirrup leathers
– unless you want to make it very hard for yourself (but #nostirrupnovember every day sounds like hell to us). Stirrup leathers should obviously also fit nicely with your saddle, so we sell them in black or brown and even with some extra bling-bling, if that’s your thing. There’s loads of different stirrup styles available, including the popular Sprenger Bow Balance
, which are super safe and help with knee problems or similar issues.
