David Kempsell (who is also a fully qualified SMS saddle fitter) combined his product design training with his passion for horse welfare and performance to revolutionise the way saddles are constructed. The result is the totally modular WOW™ saddle, made at our own facilities in rural Kent.
The unique modular construction means the fitter can select the tree, headplate and panels the horse requires for comfort and freedom to move; then add the seat and flaps to suit you and your discipline. All the components are interchangeable, so the saddle is supremely adjustable to match your horse’s changing shape as he develops or changes shape through the seasons.
At the core of the saddle is the patented Y-shaped tree. Its lateral flexion allows complete freedom of the horse’s shoulder. Add to this a choice of 21 headplates in the biggest range of angles and profiles on the market; 16 panel options in each of four tree sizes; Flair air flocking; and a wide choice of seat and flaps, and the options become almost infinite, allowing a perfect result for horse, rider and discipline.
Ensuring that perfect fit is a worldwide team of experienced Wow Saddle retailers, trained by David to provide an excellent service wherever you are. The icing on the cake is the choice of bespoke finishes. Patent, coloured and embossed leathers, coloured and patterned stitching, and decorative crystal options are available to make your Wow saddle truly one of a kind.
Our saddles are used across the world, from Grand Prix dressage arenas to trekking through forests and mountains, from world-class eventing to local competitions – everywhere riders value comfort and performance for themselves and their horse.
