Hi and welcome! My name is Dianne Pascoe and I am a qualified equine sports massage therapist and saddle fitter (A.C.A.T.T. 2004). I
have run a busy equine sports therapy business; Holistic Equine Sports Therapy (H.E.S.T.), in the Hepburn Shire and Macedon Ranges of Victoria, since July 2004.

As a result of many years treating sore backed horses, due mostly to ill fitting saddles, I decided to find a way to deal with the source of the problem rather than continually dealing with the result.

After almost 10 years promoting and selling treeless saddles, I became frustrated by the limitations of the particular brand that I was selling. Saddle instability was the greatest source of annoyance for myself personally. However, treeless does make a lot of sense and does work extremely well for many horses and riders.


In early 2013, I discovered Kuda Flex Saddles and after many, many hours of testing, concluded that these saddles would indeed be the perfect compromise between treed and treeless saddles.

Kuda Equi-Fit Flex Saddles are made in the USA. They were originally designed for Gaited horse breeds such as the Missouri Fox Trotter, Rocky Mountain Horse and the Paso Fino and Peruvian Paso.

However, Kuda Flex Saddles are also now made to suit all horse breeds from high withered Thoroughbreds to super broad backed Quarter horses and of course the notoriously short backed Arab! The entire range of Kuda Flex Saddles are much shorter, front to back, than any other Western saddle on the market.

If you have been dreaming of a saddle with the security of a Western or Half Breed but still want to feel close to your horse's back as you do in a Dressage saddle, then look no further! Kuda Flex Saddles are just what you've been waiting for! They offer the rider a perfectly balanced head-hip-heel (HHH) position which of course, makes the rider a much easier load for the horse to carry! This is paramount if you want your horse to remain sound into his or her later years.

The Kuda models range from gorgeous light weight Western saddles with or without a horn to stunningly comfortable and versatile Endurance saddles. There are also two beautiful English models to choose from.

Our customers enjoy the security of a 10 day return policy on all new Kuda Flex Saddles purchased. Please read full details on the return policy page as some conditions do of course apply.

You will also find top quality saddle pads, such as the Gorgeous Mattes Saddle Pads from Germany and the famous 5 Star 100% Virgin Wool Felt Pads from the US. We also sell extremely high quality (Hermann Oak Leather) US made Sidepulls, Headstalls, Reins, Mecate's and much much more!

There is usually a good quantity of stock on hand but some items are special order items only. All Mattes items are custom ordered and take 6-8 weeks to arrive. I guarantee they are well worth the wait!
