PDS Carl Hester Collection

Sophistication speaks for itself and the PDS Carl Hester Collection is no different.

Carl was born and raised on a Channel island called Sark where horses were a part of daily life as there were no cars. At the age of 19 Carl left the island and made it to the mainland, taking a job at Fortune Centre located at Hampshire - a centre where adults with disabilities are given the opportunity to ride horses.

A horse from this Centre, Jolly Dolly was the horse to spark Carl’s dressage ambition going on to win Young Dressage Rider Championship with this mare. The rest is history and today you can benefit from Carl’s experience through riding in one of his PDS Carl Hester Collection saddles.

“For me, to find a brand whose saddle technology is coming to the fore, that I can move forward with and help train my horses to win more medals, is really fantastic” - Carl Hester MBE.

PDS Carl Hester Saddle Technology

PDS Carl Hester saddles have the X-Change system to allow the gullet to be exchanged to fit your horse.

What’s Master FitTM?

Master FitTM provides a customised saddle tailored for the shape of your horse - accompanied by the right top flap size for you.

The Master FitTM system utilises the revolutionary AMS® panels which can be customised to suit various horse conformations.

Why do I need AMS®?

The AMS® System utilises a special neoprene layer which provides a soft consistent layer to support the rider’s weight on the back of the horse.

This layer absorbs impact and distributes pressure evenly allowing for comfort plus optimal movement for your horse. Saddles with AMS® panels can be re-flocked and fitted to your horse, just like a traditional wool flocked saddle.

The distribution of weight with the AMS® System allows for the physiological requirements of the equine athlete.

What if my horse has a prominent wither?

Alto panels are designed to suit horses with a prominent wither and a greater wither

to back differential. Additional depth to the rear of the panel accompanied by a front gusset better suits a horse of this shape. 

What if my horse has a short back?

Corto panels have been developed for horses with well developed short coupled backs.

The panel is shorter and the rear gusset flatter - giving the optimal saddle for your horse with a short back. 

What about my comfort?

Top Flaps on the PDS saddles are available in different size options to suit the length of your leg.
