Best Fur saddle

The term fur saddle is generally used to describe saddles that are not made of stiff, hard leather, but of fur. The saddles are softer and more adaptable, more agile and warm. They are therefore more likely to be used during the cold months of the year. And wrongly so, because a fur saddle has many other advantages for horse and rider in addition to its temperature-regulating function. In therapeutic riding this old saddle form was a niche existence for a long time

Everything for animals: Fur saddle Video Guide

Hides and blankets served as seat pads when riding, long before leather saddles were so widely used today. The skins and blankets should cushion the movements between horse and rider, create a temperature barrier and protect the rider from contamination by horse hair. From this simple throw over slowly more complex seatings developed, which were fastened to the horse sometime (by saddle girth) and finally led to the today’s leather saddle. However, the fur saddle has experienced a renaissance in recent years and is being used again, in simple, simple designs as well as in very complex seats made of fur. Both the simple version and the smart version have their right to exist – depending on which horse and for which rider in which railing and over what period of time the saddle should serve.

A fur saddle strengthens the bond between horse and rider. Since the fur saddle is softer and the horse’s movements are more noticeable for the rider, riding becomes more of a shared experience. In addition, the fur-saddle is temperature-equalizing all year round, it cools in the Somer and warms in the winter. This happens on both sides, so the horse also benefits from these characteristics. The soft texture of the fur saddle means that the saddle adapts perfectly to any horse’s back and is guaranteed not to squeeze or rub. In addition, a fur saddle is noticeably lighter than a leather saddle. Therefore it is gladly accepted also by the horses and ponies, which reject leather saddles usually.

Like the leather saddle, the production of the fur saddle focuses on very different physical characteristics of horse and rider. Or, to put it another way, the saddle must fit. Just as there are leather saddles in different shapes, the same applies to the fur saddle. Thanks to the great flexibility of the fur saddle, almost nothing needs to be considered when choosing the right saddle. The coat is so soft that it simply adapts to the body shape of the horse or pony. Especially for animals with very weak musculature the fur saddle is of great advantage. The freedom of the horse’s spine is achieved with padding and a free air channel in the middle under the saddle. The different forms of the fur saddle are more about what riders like. When buying a saddle, you should make sure that the saddle is always comfortable and does not pinch anywhere

Fur saddles are so soft and pleasant that they score particularly well on longer tours in the terrain. During trekking, trail riding with horse, horse trekking and the like they spare horse and rider. Usually fur saddles are made of lambskin. They can be shaped like a simple seat cushion, but they are also available with pockets and galleries, removable cushions, natural and coloured. The Iberica Plus fur saddle from Christ, for example, is considered the winner of the comparison because its removable pads make it incredibly soft and comfortable. The movements of horse and rider are perfectly transmitted, so that you can experience yourself as a team with this saddle. The Engel lambskin saddle also scores with a very close feeling between horse and rider. This saddle is connected with cotton quilting elements and can be used as a saddle pad under a leather saddle. The Premium Plus fur saddle from Christ allows you to climb over stirrups and padded knees. The manufacturer HoluHorse offers a fur saddle with integrated fastenings for stirrups, which is so light that also young horses wear it without much protest.
