Skye Stenning finds the Equipe Viktoria perfect for horse and rider.
Skye Stenning recently purchased an Equipe Viktoria for her lovely Warmblood mare, National Babe (aka Nat).
I purchased the Viktoria as my horse is quite compact, said Skye.
She has big shoulders as she is still developing and being a mare, she is very sensitive. I wanted a saddle that I could feel secure in and wouldn’t disrupt my horse’s movement and block through the shoulders.
Skye found that the Viktoria was the perfect choice – the Viktoria fitted Nat best for her horse’s build and she instantly loved riding in it.
As we all know, saddle fitting isn’t all about the horse – the rider also needs to be comfortable when riding.
I’ve found the knee rolls to be supportive and without restriction, and the Viktoria has a deep seat making every ride enjoyable, explains Syke.
The quality of the leather is beautiful, it really has minimal wear and tear considering I’m the second owner. The saddle is very light weight because of the carbon tree and the panels are small, making the Viktoria a great fit for my small Warmblood. I would recommend this saddle to anyone who is having trouble finding a saddle that fits.
