What our customers say

What do our customers say about the Maratha

I already thought I had very fine saddles but the Empire saddles are one step more comfortable for both myself and my horses. I can ride the exercises even more finely because of even better communication with my horse. The workmanship and quality of the Empire saddles is also another step higher than I was already used to. For me, it is the Rolls Royce among saddles!

What do our customers say about the Maratha

I have been riding an Empire saddle for almost 3 years now. My horse, Bombay, shows very clearly when he disagrees with something. When trying on saddles, he was equally clear.

In the end, we chose an Empire Maratha with the TreeClix system. This ensures that the tree size of my saddle can always be adjusted. My saddle offers me a lot of support while riding.

In short, for me and my horse no other saddle than an Empire saddle.

What do our customers say about the Maratha

I came in contact with Empire Saddles and the TreeClix system a few years ago because I was struggling to find a well-fitting saddle for my horses. It brought much more than I ever expected and opened up a whole new dimension in the riding and movement of my horses. Recurring problems disappeared when my saddles supported biomechanically correct horse movements.

The saddles offer great comfort for both horse and rider. They allow me to sit freely and independently, but supported, which has contributed immensely to my sitting. Additionally, the TreeClix system has allowed my horses to positively develop their bodies, as it has been possible to adjust the saddle according to the changes in my horses over the years.
