Main component
The Synthia saddle is made from Lorica®, a leather-like synthetic material that is more durable, waterproof and breathable. This material is well suited to horse riding as it is resistant to abrasion without causing the horse to overheat.
Injected-moulded polypropylene offering a good level of flexibility, meaning that it perfectly distributes the rider's weight whilst respecting the horse's muscle structure.
Gullet angle
from 32cm for the 18', from 30cm for the 17'5, 16'5 and 15'.
The deep seat is very comfortable. This helps the rider feel comfortable in the saddle and makes it easier to learn.
100% natural washed wool allows ergonomic adjustment of the saddle on the horse's back.
Knee rolls
Front and rear knee rolls to help keep the leg in the correct position.
The polypropylene billets are highly durable. These can easily be replaced or changed.
Easy maintenance:
The synthetic Lorica® can be easily cleaned with clean water. It can also be cleaned using glycerine soap to remove any remaining dust or dirt. .

Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Good value stop-gap/spare saddle for light hacking/ warm up/dreadful weather with flexible tree. Easy to clean and nice look, liked the material. Downside, tried 3. Issues -top layer of right saddle flap wrinkles up on use and then digs in knee when riding - obviously a manufacturing issue as left saddle flap didn't do it. Had this happen on two saddles. The other (3rd) saddle had stitching coming undone on first ride at front of right panel just below point of tree. Pity, as very comfy for horse and rider.
Comfy, good fit, nice stirrups, light, wipe clean
Has three - all faulty so returned sadly.
A great saddle.
I bought this saddle for my 16.3hh gelding, he is only 5 and I t hought this would be a good saddle to start training him with, I was a bit unsure because it wasn't a well known brand but it looks very smart on him.
