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 perfect for riders who spend all day in the saddle. The English Seat Saver fits easily over English saddles to reduce stress on the rider. 100% Australian Merino Sheepskin. Fits saddles 16.5" to 18". Black or Brown.

    English Seat Saver is rated 3.9565 out of 5 by 23.
    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

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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 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.

    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".
