WARNING – IMPORTANT INFORMATION IF YOU ARE CONSIDERING BUYING A NEW SADDLE

WARNING

IMPORTANT INFORMATION IF YOU ARE CONSIDERING BUYING A NEW SADDLE

It is now mandatory in Australia for all sporting bodies that saddles have two safety features. 

One is that your saddle has the fender or stirrup leather mounted on a stirrup bar. This allows the rider to be released from the saddle in a fall and drag situation. 

Two is that your saddle has two girth systems so in the event that one fails, your saddle will not come off. 

It is extremely important that if you intend to use your new saddle at any sporting event, that you ensure it has these safety features and is “Sporting Body Legal”. 

I am finding an influx of people who have purchased saddles online or at various saddle outlets and then bring them to me for alteration to make them safe and legal. IT CAN NOT BE DONE. 

Please check with your Club or Association to ensure what is required before wasting money on these unsafe and unusable products. 

All saddles sold by James Saddlery are Sporting Body Legal.
