Hybrid & Synthetic Saddles
Synthetic saddles are horse saddles made from synthetic materials rather than traditional leather. These saddles are typically made from nylon, synthetic leather, or a combination of both. Synthetic saddles offer several advantages over traditional leather saddles.
Firstly, synthetic saddles are generally more affordable than leather saddles. Leather saddles can be quite expensive, especially those made from high-quality leather. Synthetic saddles, on the other hand, are often more budget-friendly while still offering good quality and durability.
Another advantage of synthetic saddles is their low maintenance. Leather saddles require regular cleaning and conditioning to maintain their appearance and durability. Synthetic saddles, on the other hand, can be easily cleaned with soap and water and do not require special conditioning.
Synthetic saddles are also known to be lightweight, making them easier to handle and carry. This offers a benefit both to the rider, who can experience less strain on their body when lifting and moving the saddle, as well as to the horse, who may appreciate a lighter saddle on their back.
