Equaliser Western Drafter Saddle
Dear Kent Saddlery team,
My name is Sammy Ghent and I bought an Equalizer Western
Drafter saddle from you at the beginning of this year. I am writing to
commend you on your great work and attention to detail. I was away at
university when the saddle arrived, and the first time I rode in it was
at a draft, as it arrived at a time I was away at university. Having
never ridden in it before I was a little bit
anxious to see how it would feel and how I would go in it, especially at
a draft. To my relief the saddle felt as though I had been riding in it
for years, apart from the slight stiffness of the new fenders as is
expected with all new saddles I felt supported and comfortable. My 3
year horse must have thought it felt good too as he scored a 78 that day
at his first draft.

The thing I value most about your saddles is how
well they can fit a diverse range of horses and don’t damage their ever
so delicate backs. At some events my sister and I
have 6 horses between us and it’s amazing how we can just throw your
saddle from her horses to my horses without erratic padding changes. I
can spend hours in this saddle and never get sore from sitting in it. It
is great for mustering, especially in the valleys and hills. I really
enjoy riding in my Kent saddle and so do all of my horses and that is
always my main concern. I was also very pleased with your
service and correspondence throughout the making of my saddle; this is
paramount to getting the saddle you want. As our horse herd is
expanding I can see I will be looking to Kent Saddlery again in the
future to equip our horses.

“Exceptional saddle design”
I have been lucky enough to have ridden the Bicentennial Trail through
Queensland last year. The most outstanding aspect of the ride was
meeting the Queensland families in the hinterland between Rockhampton
and Maryborough. The level of hospitality, goodwill and friendship
offered was truly amazing. People went out of their way to show us their
country. It was truly an amazing experience for a southerner.
In April 2012, I had the good fortune to participate in the Jack Riley
Memorial Ride as part of The Man for Snowy River Bush Festival. This
ride was up and down ascents of over 1000ft and through lots of very
rough country, on the south west of Kosciusko National Park. Riley’s
Ride was a truly wonderful experience in some of the most majestic
countryside of Australia.
Ascending Hermit Mountain and plunging down to the Murray River, where
we travelled into lush gullies and ridges, was one of the greatest four
day rides I have ever experienced. The organisation was exceptional, we
were fantastically catered for and I met some delightful mountain people
(and some good sorts too!)
I have owned and used a Kent Saddle for over five years and have
enjoyed it greatly. The saddle has provided me with great service and
exceptional comfort. As a late comer to equestrian activities, I was
fortunate to have met Lyle who set me up with a great saddle.
Unpredictable horses can do unpredictable things, but
because of the exceptional saddle design I have managed to look good and
not hit the dust while using it. It is simply fantastic that after a
day’s riding the aches and pains that I feel cannot be contributed to
I enjoyed using the original saddle so much that I have since purchased
six other Kent Saddles for use with my family. A friend of mine, Peter
Cochran, who runs Cochran Horse Treks in the Snowy Mountains, has been
on horses all his life and he says the Kent Saddle is the best he has
ever ridden. That is something and I am grateful for his advice in
seeking out a Kent Saddle.
