Testimonials

“I rode in your saddle (with the flaps on, sorry I am old fashioned). I was pleasantly surprised, it has an excellent seat, somewhat behind the middle, which I like (you want to sit towards the back, not on his shoulders). The seat has enough room also. The horse seems to be comfortable in it although I obviously have no basis for comparison. The part where I thought it would be springs with the 4 shock absorbing points it seems to rest on is not the case. It is resting on the panels and is stable as you said. I would totally recommend the saddle from what I felt.”

I’m an equine and human massage therapist with certificates in many modalities as well as a rider. I’m doing body work as well as riding 6+ horses and working on 8+ people a day. I have issues from many years of riding young horses. All the horses have been switched to RP and EQ saddles and their myofacial networks, muscle systems and my own systems are much improved for the change. Including my very difficult to fit short backed Hungarian. They must be fit properly like every saddle, but unlike a standard saddle can easily be altered to accommodate development in real time. Highly recommend purchasing an impression pad so adjusting the saddle has hard evidence and shows you what you may be missing. FYI we’ve made switch over 10 year period to everyone going in one.

Mika McKinney 1995-2018 loved the stability of the EQ Flapless saddle, which let her ride symmetrically while she fought a rare form of bone cancer - and lost. RIP, Mika.

My new EQ Saddle Science saddle has literally changed my life. No longer do my lower back, neck and hips hurt after riding. Erik feels like a different horse, after only 4 rides. He is seeking the contact, in front of my leg, quiet in his mouth and HAPPY. I cannot say enough good things so instead I will shout from the rooftops that it is 🌟BRILLIANT🌟!! Thank you to Meg Hilly for fitting us and Stefanie Moses for introducing me. These saddles are game changers.

I have done the custom built saddle before and have found it to be very hit or miss and I do not live where it is easy to have saddle fittings done. I have ridden in the RP system for over ten years. I know my horses have benefited. If they change their shape, I can make the adjustments. If I need help, Carmi is always available. I have the pressure pad that allows me to see the problem. It has been wonderful to participate in the evolution to the Tribute and then the Flapless saddle and I am thrilled to be allied with the first saddle maker that I know is taking the huge step of trying to scientifically establish the saddle’s benefits.
