KM Elite Products are proud to be the UK Distributors for Stridefree Saddles, Handmade in Australia by Peter Horobin Saddlery.
Peter Horobin Saddlery is celebrating their 35th anniversary 1985-2020. They have grown from humble beginnings as a small Australian family business to an international brand that manufactures saddles for both the equestrian and racing industry. Once upon a time, operating from the back shed on Peter’s home property in Tasmania, to now distributing saddles across five continents, Peter Horobin Saddlery has grown into a global success story, with Peter Horobin earning himself the reputation as being one of the best saddle makers in the world.
Peter Horobin Saddlery strive to be as sustainable as possible in the manufacturing of our saddles from the leather we use, tanned from sustainable factories in Germany, Italy and France to the thread we use to hand make our saddles, the brass fittings from suppliers who manufacture using top quality materials along with high standards for ethical manufacturing, right down to encouraging the purchase of pre-loved Peter Horobin saddles to maintain longevity and adopting the philosophy of reduce, reuse, recycle and repair. Our revolutionary StrideFree® saddle tree design and the quality design and craftsmanship of our saddles, ensures a comfortable ride for both horse and rider, focusing on biomechanics, equine back health and rider safety. When a horse is properly fitted with a StrideFree® saddle, it moves freer, has lengthened stride and no signs of soreness. This remarkable change in the horses’ performance, has equestrians all around the world impressed, and with this, the global demand of StrideFee® saddles has put Peter Horobin Saddlery onto the world map.
The StrideFree® Elite is designed for close contact with the horse. It has the option of having either a stitched in knee roll, a removable velcro knee roll or a screwed in knee roll.
The StrideFree® Kanga has been refined for ultimate close contact. The stirrup bar alignment supports the mobility and forever changing gravity of the rider, to suit their position. It has the added benefit of back blocks to ensure the riders legs don’t move too far backwards with higher jump. The StrideFree® General Purpose saddle is the perfect saddle for the discerning everyday rider. Suitable for all ages that offers support and comfort, and for pleasure riders who would like something that caters for various disciplines. It combines the lightweight forward cut design of a jump saddle with the slightly deeper seat of a dressage saddle.
On each continent where there is a PHS Representative, we ensure that they are properly trained and they uphold the core values and philosophies of the Peter Horobin Saddlery brand, providing the customer with the most memorable and rewarding experience when purchasing a Peter Horobin saddle. Once you ride in a Peter Horobin saddle, you will ride in one for life.
