Kent and Masters GP and Jump Saddles

Kent & Masters GP Saddles are fitted with three girth straps (billets), the third one being moveable.
This flexible girthing arrangement allows saddle stability to be optimised instantly.

girthing neutral 08 16

Begin by girthing in the neutral position using the second and third billet.
(NOTE: This is the same as girthing on the first and third billets on a saddle with a conventional girthing system)

girthing front 08 16

If you find the saddle slips forward, you can use the point (front) strap and the third strap

girthing back 08 16

If the back of the saddle lifts away from the horse’s back, move the third strap onto the floating balance position

girthing do not 08 16

NEVER girth using the point strap and first strap. This causes saddle instability and potential discomfort for your horse.

  • A pony tree with longer, swept-back points to support the front of the saddle and allow freer shoulder movement.

Series: Original
Conformation:             
High Wither, Standard Wither, Low Profile

This superior S-Series GP saddle offers a different feel to our Original GP and petite, slim riders or those with narrower hips may feel it suits them better. It is avilable in three panel options – low, medium or high wither. The seat is compact and neat, which means it a great option for the petite rider on a large pony or small horse. The cut is forward enough to accommodate a jumping leg position – making it a really versatile saddle.

All Kent & Masters saddles share the features below. This S-Series Compact GP benefits from superior craftsmanships and higher specification design details for a truly luxurious feel and appearance. It also features the following details:

  • A neat seat, slim rear gusset and a tree that is slightly flatter on the underside compared to our Original GP.

  • An alternative seat shape to the Cob GP which makes it a viable option for those who find the Cob seat doesn’t suit them.
  • Velcro knee and calf blocks under the flap which can be positioned to suit your leg length and position. Ghosted stitching on the knee pad helps it contour neatly around the block and ensures added comfort.
  • Changeable girthing arrangement which allows saddle stability to be optimised instantly (see girthing options below).

Changeable Gullet Bar

A changeable gullet bar allows you or your saddle fitter to modify the width of the saddle’s gullet to suit the horse’s wither profile as the horse changes shape with either exercise, muscle development, maturity or rest. There are 8 options in the short S-bar and 7 in the long R-bar.
