The History behind Prestige

Prestige is an Italian Saddle Brand that has evolved over the past 40 years and is based on innovative ideas, highly skilled craftsmanship and a passion for horses. They aim to create unique and outstanding saddles that enhance the well being and performance of both horse and rider. Since the saddle is the main point of contact between the horse and rider, Prestige have always emphasized the need to create innovative designs that respect both. In the 70's Prestige were the pioneers behind the synthetic fibre tree and over the years have continued to create additional, stand out design features such as, colour personalisation for the trim and stitching and the use of rawhide leather to protect the cantle from being damaged.


Jump Saddles

Saddles play a key role in helping to achieve optimum performance. All Prestige Jump saddles are designed with the maximum comfort in mind to ensure freedom of movement for the horse's shoulders. The knee and calf blocks have been designed to enable the rider to maintain a balanced, secure seat and the calfskin used to create the saddles provide increased grip, helping the rider to stay in the correct position.
