As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

    English Seat Saver is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 30.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Folds itself down the middle Because of the way it attaches, as I was riding, it folded lengthwise down the middle and felt as though I was riding on a seam. Very uncomfortable. In fact, it made the problem I was trying to solve worse.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved my butt! I have been riding with one for the last five years. I've never had the need for full seat breeches because this keeps my butt in place. I replaced this item because the elastic was stretched out and it was pretty flat after five years use. I'm so happy that it arrived right before a Judged Pleasure Ride competition. A rider was bucked off and had to be taken to hospital by ambulance, everything backed up. What is usually a 4 hour ride, became a 7 hour marathon ride. But miraculously I was NOT a bit saddle sore because of my brand new seat saver! This fit my 17.5 Dressage saddle perfectly. (Yes, I ride trail in my Dressage saddle!) Not only does it keep my butt in place, it is super cushy and it's well made. So it is worth every penny and I'm recommending it to everyone. If you spend a lot of time in the saddle, you need this.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice and comfortable! I have only ridden in this once, but I have to say it is super comfortable and didn't move an inch when I was riding. Attaches easily to the saddle too. Can't beat it for the price! I have a 16.5 HDR saddle and the fit was great. I can't speak to it's longevity but I'm sure it'll be fine.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from didn't fit I purchased this seat saver to replace one that I have ridden for 25 years. I returned it because it did not fit my dressage saddle or my forward seat. It wanted to bridge the seats rather than conform to shape of the seat like my old one does. It has fit every saddle I have ever put it on. This seat saver is well made....just not made for me. I would recommend it with the "fit reservation". I might note it DID NOT come with return shipping as advertised. I had to pay the return postage. No big deal, just not what was promised.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it for my little girls hard saddle. Made her much more comfortable. Wish it came in pony saddle size but the regular size does work on our pony saddle.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from English Seat Saver Works great, stays in place. I'm really pleased with the product.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Way To Small The item description says it will fit up to an 18" seat. I have a 17.5" and it was not even close to fitting properly. It looked to be good quality material and I probably would have liked it had it actually fit my saddle properly.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from So-so seat saver While this seat saver is very comfortable, it does not stay on my saddle very well. The elastic that is supposed to go under the the panels doesn't stay in place. The part that goes over the cantle also doesn't stay in place. There are strings attached to the pommel area that I can't figure out how to secure so I wrapped them around the stirrup bar. I use seat savers to save the wear and tear on my saddle so I use it on a daily basis. This one is a disappointment...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So comfy!! I bought this after cracking my tailbone in a fall off my horse and needing a little extra padding for my bum, I love it!! I was able to sit the trot and not be in pain:) its a little small for my saddle (19 in) but it still worked just fine, love it!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well Purchased the seat saver for my husband's saddle to provide extra grip. We ride endurance and his horse is still relatively green. The seat saver fits his english style endurance saddle well, is very cushy, and helps provide extra "stick" for those quick spooks when moving down the trail. We especially like the velcro strap that attaches thru the underside of the saddle. It provides an easily adjustable, yet firm attachment to hold the sheepskin in place. The thickness and quality are nice. We have only had it for one month, so durability will see over time. So far, it is excellent.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Weird Fit I bought this product to help reduce the wear on my saddle's pommel. I have a 17'' Devocoux and this product doesn't fit it well; it is too small through the seat and cantel. Also, I recommend buying felt or some other soft fabric to put on the underside of this; the underside of the fleece scratches the leather when you sit in your saddle. The quality of the fleece, however, is very nice.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice and soft, thick, but it doesn't fit well on my english saddle-keeps slipping off
    Date published: 2012-06-06
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay Seat Saver I bought this seat saver thinking it would have more cushion, but it doesn't. If you are looking for just a seat saver it's perfect, fits well and stays put.
    Date published: 2012-05-01
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value! I wasn't sure what kind of product I would get for only $36, but I am very happy with this seat cover. It does take a little getting used to, but is quite comfortable. FYI, you might have to shorten your stirrups a hole when using this. No biggie, however.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from English seat saver This sheepskin seat saver is thick and springy enough to do the job I wanted, namely, to help chafing caused by a saddle whose twist is a little too wide for me. I wish it had more of an attachment in the front, because it shifts a little, but it does increase my comfort.
    Date published: 2011-10-04
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from The seat saver was great except for the back strap. I sewed on a new strap and it worked much better.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too Small to Help MY Back I prefer a larger pad because I had hoped to cover most of my saddle to help cushion my bad lower back.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from makes an old saddle feel new! I loved my old jumping saddle but the seat was really hard. It was designed before they started making the new cushy seats they do now. This seat saver is a great buy that fits and works great. I thought it would be made cheaply because the price was so reasonable, but its not. Its really nice!
    Date published: 2010-04-28
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product I purchased this product mainly to protect my saddle from everyday scratches and scrapes. It fits well. I was concerned that it would slip and slide while jumping, but to my surprise it stays in place very well. It is very comfortable and an added bonus is that it keeps your seat warm during winter riding.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must buy for long trail rides I bought this because someone elce at my barn had it and recomended it, it is nice and thick excellent for long trail rides. It moves around a little but other than that its great a must have!!!!!
    Date published: 2009-07-26
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great value This seat saver does everything it's supposed to do. It fit my 17.5'' dressage saddle nicely, doesn't slip or bunch, and provides good cushioning. It's a great value for the price.
    Date published: 2009-06-02
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Had to have this! I owned/used a similar product 15 years ago, in cream, and it was so comfy. Lost it to the barn critters. Thought about buying a newer saddle with more cushiness but decided to go back to what I liked before and spare the expense of a new saddle. This is so soft, the loose horse hair brushes right off, I bought black to match my black saddle pad. All the fittings ie. elastic around cantle, velcro strap that runs through the gullet, and dee ring ties keeps this securely in place. And I am not sore after my 1-2 hour trail rides. The saddle I use this with is a Crosby Prix des Nations 17".
