Innovative Panel Systems

Ava Saddles offer a choice of filling in their panels.

1. Foam and felt panel system (diagram A)

This foam and felt is a useful alternative to air:

  • super soft, smooth panels
  • never lumpy or bumpy, no uneven wear
  • never needs flocking
  • low profile, close contact feel
  • minimal maintenance

2. Traditional Flocking

A traditional filling system:

  • Uses super soft wool flock
  • Balances saddle for the rider
  • Adjusted for minimal shape change
  • Creates even weight distribution

2. Foam and Flair airbag system (diagram B)

A combination of foam and four Flair airbags has many unique benefits:

  • unrivalled fitting capabilities, even the most awkward shapes
  • easily adjustable when horse changes physique throughout their lifetime
  • unique communication and feel through rider’s seat
  • super soft, flexible panels that mould to each individual horse
  • allows great range of movement through the back
  • the most versatile and comfortable saddle panel available

Both girls have got a Saddle for life now though, definitely a worthwhile investment! Fantastic quality and great looking saddles! Thank you so much Claire Fitzmaurice! Highly recommended!

Thank you Claire Love my new calfskin dressage saddle with crystals. My 4 year old goes so well in his Ava jump saddle so thought I would treat him.

After 5 saddle fitters before her, we finally we met Claire with the fabulous saddles that can be adjusted in so many ways to suit both Horse AND Rider.

Debroah Howson, Doncaster

Great saddles & an excellent knowledgeable fitter - even with big (17.3) high withered sport horses - i will never use any other saddles or fitters now and great value for money!

Thanks to Claire I now have a saddle with a narrow twist to allow my hips to drop and since riding in it for only a few weeks I’m amazed that my hip hasn’t done its collapsing trick once.
