Should the saddle be checked periodically?

Does a specific product exist to clean saddles and accessories?
Selleria Equipe has created a special range of cleaning products for all needs:
- Soft Clean
- Soft Care
The specific detergent and moisturising substances are to be preferably applied with a lambskin glove or alternatively with a soft cloth.
All these products are designed and specifically prepared for the care of the natural hides and leather used in the manufacturing process of our saddles.
It’s very important to carry out the treatment regularly, including greasing for leather nourishment.
How can I understand if my saddle fits well on my horse?
The first thing you have to ensure is that the arch of the tree don’t touch the withers.
Then you should checked that between the withers and the opening of the saddle there is the space for 4 fingers (approx. 7cm)
Passing the hand under the tree will be meeting a suitable resistance. If the hand passes too easily, the saddle is too large. If the hand passes with difficulty or doesn’t pass at all, the saddle is too tight.
As far as the horse’s back is concerned, the kidneys must be absolutely free.
The last step is putting the hand under the saddle (under the arch of the tree) where you have to try to figure out if the support of the panels creates an uniform and moderate pressure on every part of the back, where the saddle sits.
If it becomes necessary can we modify an Equipe saddle?
Naturally, it depends from the model and typology of the saddle. Therefore, you can fill out the form on our website in the section “contact us”.
Where can I find the serial number and the production year of my saddle?

Why does every saddle have a serial number?

How can I understand the size/ measure which suits better for the purchase of an Equipe saddle?
First thing when you are sitting on the saddle you must have the end of the knee in the flaps and close to the knee-roll.
Then it’s necessary to sit well in the saddle, with four fingers fitting easily behind the rider’s lower back.
For more info you can ask to our authorized distributors.
