A badly fitting saddle can cause the rider a lot of pain especially in their back due to compensating in an un balanced saddle.

Bespoke Saddles and Bridles
At Kruger we specialise in tailor made saddles for all disciplines. We know that every horse is unique and finding a saddle off the peg that fits well isn’t always possible. We have no production line here. All our saddles are hand built by individual craftsmen which is why we are able to offer you our custom made service. We come out, measure up and select leathers and discuss design ideas just give us a call.
We know how difficult it is to find a perfectly fitting bridle when your horses head is in-between sizes or is very big or very small. Its no problem to us to come out and measure up for you a bridle.

Kruger Saddlery is a traditional saddler's workshop based in Old Snydale, near Pontefract, West Yorkshire.
We are working saddlers that specialise in custom made saddles for all disciplines. Here at Kruger we take great pride in making the perfect saddle for you and your horse.
We use only the best grade English leather and British standard trees to make our saddles with. Each and every saddle is made by one individual craftsman from start to finish to ensure the standard is maintained at the highest level throughout the process.
The majority of saddles manufactured today are made on a production line with several people involved with their manufacture. This is where we are different! With comfort and performance in mind, we understand the importance of the impact a correctly fitting saddle has on the partnership between horse and rider.
The saddle is what connects you together and must configure to the horses bone structure to enable perfect harmony. The saddle must also accommodate the rider’s needs as well so this is why we insist made to measure is the way forward!
