Arc De Triumph

When I started to hold camps and clinic in 2009, once of the biggest challenges I faced was to teach kids to balance in saddles that were poorly made and unbalanced.  Unfortunately your top quality english saddles like the Butet, Antarres, CWD start at over $4000.  It is difficult for most families and kids to buy this expensive saddle.  I first began to advise them to look for a really good saddle that was used.  My first saddle was a really worn Butet that I pruchased for $1000.  I now ride in an Arc De Triumph classique.  A good used saddle is much better than a new poorly made saddle.  Riding in a well balanced and well crafted saddle made out of good leather makes a huge difference in how easily you can balance well in that saddle.  I began to look around for other options.  At one of my visits to AETA I met the owners of Arc De Triumph.  Arc De Triumph has produced exceptional bridles for decades.  They are the preferred bridle for many top professionals.  They recently also started making french saddles.  The cool thing thing is they make an entry level saddle that starts at $1800. In addition, their semi custom starts in $2400 and their fully custom saddle starts at $3400.  All of their saddles are very well balanced and are made out of french leather which breaks in quickly.  The leather care be upgraded to calfskin, which is a very nice super soft leather that is “grippy”.    An investment in a good saddle is an invaluable investment for any rider.  The Arc De Triumph saddle line now makes owning a well made and designed saddle a “little more affordable”.    We now carry the full line of Arc De Triumph saddles at the Taiji shop.   All Arc De Triumph saddles are custom fitted for the horse and rider.  We are available to do a saddle fitting at all of our travel destinations.  To schedule a fitting contact: Annette at 814-574-1880.  You will love your Are De Triumph saddle!  Lizzy
