Product Description

Allow 4-5 weeks for delivery as these saddles are made to order in England. We often have a couple in stock, so be sure to check on this site for those. 

SUPER STICKY LEATHER is the latest improvement on this saddle. The Lovatt & Ricketts Beaufort Calfskin Cutback Saddleseat Saddle from the notable high quality saddle manufacturer. This saddle fits the rider better than any other saddle on the market with the thicker padding yet a narrower seat for a natural rider fit. The tree is more comfortable for your horse with its straight channel down the underside middle to prevent rocking & pinching. The lateral flex tree is just enough to move with the horse. It also features a patented 5-way adjustable bar, which has now been recessed into the tree to reduce bulk. The updated saddle features a narrower seat for a more familiar feel. Also unlike the Shively or Freedman, the Lovatt & Ricketts tree incorporates spring technology to allow just a bit of flex for the horse, not so much that it changes the rider's experience but improves the fit and comfort for the horse. This saddle, unlike the traditional Buffalo hide Lovatt & Ricketts saddles, has much softer sticky Calfskin throughout with beautiful grippy flaps and seat (stickier panels starting in 2016 for an incredibly secure ride). The finish and attention to detail is the nicest we have seen in the saddles we sell. Best of all is the fit. Lovatt & Ricketts specializes in fit, so we are offering three different tree sizes. The Medium tree is standard and fits most Saddlebreds, Morgans, Arabs, and Walkers. The Narrow tree is available by special order for exceptionally narrow horses. The Wide tree is also available by special order to fit Friesians or other heavy breeds. We have found this saddle to make even the fussiest horses happy. The Beaufort model is available in sizes 19, 20, 21, 22, 23 and in Havana or Black Flat or Deep Seat (fits much like an MMX).  All Black saddles will be made to order and non-returnable (although we are happy to consign them for you). Right now, please allow up to 4-5 weeks delivery of new saddles as they are being made to order. We will stay in touch with on the progress of special order saddles.  Flat or Deep Seat.
