This brown Premier Equine saddle is an elite leather close contact jump saddle engineered for precision riding and performance over fences.

The Lyon Leather Close Contact Jump Saddle has been crafted with supple German European leather and engineered with a copolymer tree which is highly durable, extremely lightweight and has exceptional stress crack resistance. Synthetic fibre wool flocked panels offer a balanced system of pressure distribution, allowing your horse to move freely and without restriction.

The close contact design features a forward-cut padded knee roll which aids correct leg positioning, and the understated styling offers a traditional look with a solid leather flap. Stainless steel safety flick stirrup bars covered by a leather skirt provide an easy and safe way to apply and remove your stirrup leathers. 

A medium depth seat and specifically designed square cantle supports the natural rider action over fences and polished leather girth straps allow for custom girthing options. Front D rings have been added for the attachment of training aids and martingales. 

We offer an affordable solution with a high level of anatomical expertise in the development of our innovative range of discipline-specific saddles with customisable fitting options. For the ideal fit, we advise the purchase of the PE Gullet Gauge to provide you with a guide to the best size PE gullet for use in your Premier Equine saddle. 

We understand that various factors can affect your horse such as health, fitness, exercise regime, age, and condition. These factors may contribute to changes in the shape of your horse meaning that you may need to reassess the fit of your saddle. Our PE Interchangeable Gullet System allows for quick and easy customisation of the fit of the saddle, without the additional cost of a new saddle. 

This saddle comes fitted with the medium gullet as standard. You can purchase the individual gullet widths here.

To measure the suitable size gullet for your horse use the PE Gullet Gauge.

Care Instructions

Using your saddle for the first time:

Premier Equine have carried out all necessary treatment processes before delivering your saddle, so you can use it as soon as you receive it. However, for optimum softness and protections, we advise you to apply a good quality leather conditioning balsam and leave for 24 hours to allow for full absorption, out of direct sunlight. Buff with a soft cloth to remove any excess. 

Beware of the risk of staining white clothes, especially during the first few uses.

Store in a dry place away from direct sunlight or heat. Regularly clean your saddle and apply a good quality conditioning balsam to preserve the suppleness and colour of the leather. 

Store on a saddle hook/saddle stand that provides even pressure. 

Day-to-Day care:

  1. Remove any dirt and debris from the surface & girth straps by wiping down your saddle with a damp, soft cloth after every use.
  2. Wipe over with a dry, soft cloth to remove any excess moisture. 
  3. Allow the saddle to dry naturally in a well-ventilated area out of direct sunlight and heat. 
  4. Once dry, apply a high-quality leather balsam. Take care not to over-saturate the leather and in particular; the girth straps*.
  5. Allow the saddle to dry naturally in a well ventilated area out of direct sunlight and heat. 
  6. Once dry, apply your saddle cover for protection. 

If your saddle has come into contact with water, allow it to dry naturally out of direct sunlight or heat. Once dry, apply a high-quality leather balsam and store your saddle in a dry place. 

  • Do not place dirty accessories over the top of the saddle.
  • Do not clean the saddle with products containing solvent or glycerine soap as these substances will damage the integrity of the saddle.
  • Do not treat/grease a saddle that has not been cleaned first as this poses the risk of letting dirt penetrate the leather, damaging it.
  • Please note: During the summer months, you may need to increase the frequency in which you treat your leather saddle as the sun and higher temperatures can dehydrate the leather.
  • *Warning: over-saturation of the leather & leather girth straps can cause over-absorption which can deteriorate the leather. Do not over-saturate your saddle and girth straps. 

For optimum performance and longevity: apply a high-quality leather conditioning balsam at least twice a month to maintain the suppleness of the leather.
