The Horse's Voice
Where Horses Choose Their Own Saddles!
The Horse's Voice Saddling
Horses communicate in all sorts of ways… with their posture, positioning, movement, muscular tension, behaviour, facial expressions and attitude to name just a few.
Our approach to Saddling is based on giving horses the opportunity to choose their own saddles and educating owners how to recognise and understand their horse’s unique ‘voice’ relative to their saddling needs. This approach combined with the wonders of ‘Functional Saddling’ can completely transform problems with behaviour, schooling, muscling, posture, attitude and performance.
Riders are often amazed to discover new levels of partnership and a horse who is much easier to ride!
What we do
What is Functional Saddling?
Functional Saddling is a profound method of saddling which promotes and supports health, well-being and self-expression in horses by ensuring comfort and accommodating changes in back shape/width that occur naturally during biomechanically correct movement.

What makes us
Horses’ bodies can change quickly, as a result of seasonal changes, physical demands, injuries and so on, but it’s not usually practical to have a saddler visit this often, so what can be done to ensure a saddle doesn’t go out of balance and start to cause problems/discomfort for the horse when these changes occur?
The Functional Saddling approach includes a Padding System which enables riders to easily fine-tune the balance of their saddle every time they ride, ensuring its always in perfect balance and comfortable for both horse and rider. We believe in empowering riders to take care of their horse’s daily saddling needs, whilst always being there if you ever need extra help and support.
