Total Contact Saddle



About the Total Contact Saddle

Handmade using high quality leather by an English Master Saddler and English stainless steel for the stirrup attachments and English metalwork D-rings.

Total Contact uses the BALANCE of the rider to communicate with the horse. Changes in balance are communicated to the horse through the specially designed saddle which allows such subtle changes to be communicated rather than trying to do the same through several inches of plastic, leather, padding etc as seen in a traditional English saddle.

You will notice that the TCS saddle has no definable shape like an English saddle. To ensure the saddle remains stable and in place with supported spinal clearance, we recommend the EDIX saddle pads with 3Mesh inserts.

The saddle can be paired with a range of either English, Western or both, depending on your preference.


One size fits all.

Available in short or long billets – NOTE: Long billets require a dressage girth.
