Black Country Saddles Sponsor Ridden Hunter Championship at Equifest

Equifest logo1Staffordshire-based Black Country Saddles has announced an exciting new sponsorship at Equifest 2016 and will be supporting the Ridden Hunter Championship.

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

Said Wendy Hartley of Black Country Saddles: “Equifest is a fantastic event and we are delighted to be sponsoring the prestigious Ridden Hunter Championship on the Thursday evening.

“It is now such a popular show and bearing in mind that last year our stand was so busy we decided we wanted to support the event by sponsoring one of the championships.”

Many leading competitors now ride in the Black Country Classic Show Saddle which  offers 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 neater appearance with the close profile of the saddle helping to show off and enhance the overall picture, so important in the world of showing.

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

More than 20 years of expertise has been combined to produce the saddle, using a specialist tree and the very best materials available today.
