This is the GP saddle for you if you have a horse with large shoulders, big shoulder movement or asymmetric shoulders due to muscle imbalance or wastage. The cut is forward enough to allow for jumping, hunting, schooling and hacking.

All Kent & Masters S-Series saddles share the features below, while this S-Series Anatomic GP also benefits from the following details

    • The patented panel design eliminates the part of the panel which can restrict the shoulder and replaces it with a versatile double-block system. The horse does not have the panel restricting its shoulder, so is able to move more freely.
    • On a conventional saddle, pressure at the front transmits to movement at the rear of the saddle. Without this front pressure, the saddle is able to stay still even during big shoulder movements.
    • The Velcro support blocks on the underside of the flap come in two different depths and are easily interchangeable. So using a deeper block on the side with less shoulder muscle can allow a rider to sit symmetrically on a horse with asymmetric shoulders.
    • Knee and calf blocks provide support for the rider’s legs.
    • Ghosted stitching on the knee pad helps it contour neatly around the knee block and ensures added comfort.
    • Knee and calf pads are hide covered.
    • A universal open-headed tree and broad panel design that interfaces well with most conformations.
    • Changeable girthing arrangement which allows saddle stability to be optimised instantly (see girthing options below).

All Kent & Masters saddles benefit from the following features:

changeable gullet barsChangeable gullet bar

A changeable gullet bar allows you or your saddle fitter to modify the width of the saddle’s gullet to suit the horse’s wither profile as the horse changes shape with either exercise, muscle development, maturity or rest. There are 8 options in the short S-bar and 7 in the long R-bar.

Campaign for Real Wool100% British wool flocking

Wool is a natural fibre and provides superior softness and comfort for the horse because it moulds and settles quickly, giving optimum panel contact with the horse’s back. Two reinforced flocking slots make it easy for your saddle fitter to do any necessary adjustments to fit on-site

WE ADVISE SADDLE FITTING IS ALWAYS CARRIED OUT BY AN AUTHORISED
KENT & MASTERS SADDLE FITTER

Kent & Masters GP Saddles are fitted with three girth straps (billets), the third one being moveable.
This flexible girthing arrangement allows saddle stability to be optimised instantly.

 

Girthing Neutral PositionBegin by girthing in the neutral position using the second and third billet.
(NOTE: This is the same as girthing on the first and third billets on a saddle with a conventional girthing system)

 

Girthing saddle move forwardIf you find the saddle slips forward, you can use the point (front) strap and the third strap

 
 

Girthing saddle move backwardIf the back of the saddle lifts away from the horse’s back, move the third strap onto the floating balance position

 

Girthing DO NOTNEVER girth using the point strap and first strap. This causes saddle instability and potential discomfort for your horse.
