Luxury Saddle Collection Launched

One of the UK’s leading saddle makers has launched a new range of luxury saddles for 2016.

Frank Baines Saddlery Limited, one of the UK’s foremost hand-made saddle makers, has developed a new range of saddles called Symphony. These new saddles are aimed at customers who value traditional craftsmanship using only the finest materials and expect exceptional performance from their saddle.

Garry Baines, production manager at Frank Baines Saddlery, explains: “Using valuable feedback from our customers and working closely with our team of saddlers, we reviewed every single aspect of our saddles to enhance even further the fit and performance of the saddle in each equestrian discipline.”

He added: “The Symphony range is a contemporary look that delivers exceptional performance with added luxury which embodies what a rider expects from a Frank Baines saddle.”

The company has launched two new models in their Dressage collection and one in each of their Eventing and Jumping collections with further models available later in the year.

The new models are:

Dressage: Adagio and Sequence

Jumping: Galliard

Eventing: Virtuoso

The new designs utilise core elements from their most popular saddles with added enhancements to provide closer contact between horse and rider, added stability and grip in seat and block areas through the use of Intelligent Grip System (IGS) Fabric, inclusion of the EXP system used in their Classic range, and development of a hybrid tree.

Additional options are also available including coloured welting around seat and cantle, cantle insert, rear facing and matching stitching as well as Swarovski Elements.  All new Symphony saddles include a deluxe cover, numnah and pot of saddle care.

The new saddles are hand-crafted at their workshop in Walsall and are available to order from retail stockists world-wide. As Frank Baines saddles are all hand-made, there is a typical 4-6 week lead time.
