Black Country Saddles Sponsor Ridden Hunter Championship at Equifest 2017

Equifest 2017 will once again see Staffordshire-based Black Country Saddles sponsoring the Ridden Hunter Championship, following the success of last year.

Well-known for supporting leading names including Katy Carter, Kirstine Douglas, Jo Bates, Robert Walker, Sarah Parker and Simon Reynolds, Black Country Saddle’s Classic Show Saddle has become hugely popular amongst riders.

Equifest takes place at the East of England Showground, Peterborough – August 9 to 13.

Said John Hartley of Black Country Saddles: “Equifest is a brilliant event and we are thrilled to be sponsoring the esteemed Ridden Hunter Championship again, particularly as Equifest celebrates its tenth anniversary this year.

“Attracting a host of competitors and spectators each year, from all over the UK, we are delighted to be sponsoring one of the championships.”

Many leading competitors now ride in the Black Country Classic Show Saddle  delivering style and elegance when in the show arena.

This saddle is straight-cut to help accentuate the horse or pony’s shoulder, but has a subtle knee roll to help keep the rider in the ideal show position.

The low cantle helps provide a flatter seat for a neat appearance with the close profile of the saddle helping to show off and improve the overall picture, so important in the world of showing.

Made using pre-oiled vintage leather, this saddle offers an exceptionally comfortable seat and is flocked with pure wool to allow for greater bearing pressure and fitting adjustment.

Over 25 years of expertise has been combined to produce the saddle, using the very best materials available today.
