The HM Vogue is HM Saddles flagship model. The SoftTree is a revolutionary design unlike any other saddle on the market. Vogue saddles have no rigid parts, other than a small cantle support, which cannot be felt by either horse or rider. It is not like fully treeless saddles that are very thin and do not provide a ‘twist’ for the rider, instead our saddles allow the thighs to drop and legs and hips do not feel straddled. The SoftTree enables the saddle to flex with the horse's back, giving great freedom of movement, with no restriction of the horse's shoulders or back. Prices start from £1599.
The HM FlexEE Finale saddle is a high-quality saddle at an amazing price! It is built on a leather ‘tree’, a very old method of making a flexible saddle. The FlexEE Finale, as with all Heather Moffett saddles, is ergonomically designed to allow the rider, even a total beginner, to sit in the correct ear/shoulder/hip/heel alignment with ease. The Finale is made with the finest soft European hide and the panels are flocked with pure Jacob's wool. The price is £849 and each saddle comes with a full set of gullet plates, now including up to 4x. FlexEE Finesse saddles may be ordered online or please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org or +44 (0)7877 202 950 to purchase or for fitting advice.
The FlexEE is a hand-made saddle, including the leather tree. Unlike a ready-made wooden or plastic tree, the leather tree takes up half the manufacturing time to make, so adds considerably to the saddlers time taken to make a saddle from start to finish. A leather tree also takes more skill to incorporate into a saddle, as unlike wood or plastic which is solid, leather being flexible, moves the whole time the saddle is being made, adding greatly to the difficulty. The lead time can also vary as we are sometimes waiting on materials imported from the UK which can get held up in customs either end. We hope that you will bear with us, as our manufacturer and ourselves, can only do our best in the face of import and export challenges, and that occasionally lead times will be extended in the case of such events.
The Finesse is being replaced with the FlexEE Finale, so numbers of this saddle are limited and what we have in stock for each size is now listed in the online shop. The FlexEE Finale is now available to order!
HM Saddles also carries a range of products that complement the saddles - stirrup leathers, wide-tread stirrup irons, girths, saddlecloths and pads, and much more. We also have a range of DVDs and books, including the best-selling "Enlightened Equitation" by Heather Moffett.
