Lovatt & Ricketts Elan™ Close-Contact Hunt Saddle

The Elan™ Close-Contact Hunt Saddle has become one of our most popular models over the last 30 years due to its versatility and elegant but functional design. It is a superb hunt seat saddle at home in the show ring and yet is perfect for jumping medium size fences.

Built on a European styled medium deep close-contact spring saddletree, but with a more open pommel to enable freedom of the shoulder; thus enabling the horse to move with more alacrity. Close-contact wool flocked panels make for superb comfort for your horses back. With a redesigned larger knee pad giving a closer feel for the rider and accommodating a choice of adjustable Velcro knee blocks that can be placed in the ideal position will help the rider obtain their optimum seat.
