What is the HooBee?

An extremely close contact saddle that should fit any horse. It is easy to use and a comfortable and affordable saddle. Without going into too much science stuff the saddle is based on a reduced ½ tree. The tree we have fabricated for us, to our specific design, and it allows complete movement through the shoulder as we have eliminated the need for points, while still benefitting from the safety of a modern ½ tree and the flexibility of a new design.

The principals behind the design of the saddle are:
  • No matter what time of year, winter or summer, to have 1 saddle to do the job of 2 was a priority.
  • If you horse had been enjoying the lush grass of summer or been on box rest for 6 weeks the saddle would still fit
  • No matter how many horses the rider rode that their saddle would fit all of them.
  • To sit on your horse and to really feel it underneath you and not to feel like you are perching on top.

The saddles can be purchased in Leather, Suede or a combination of the the two and come in Havana or Black.If you have any unusual colour requests 9 out of 10 times this can be catered for, possibly at a slight additional cost. To date the Hoobee has been used on more than 50 horses, ranging from 13hh Cobs to a 18hh horse and everything in between and has been used for Show jumping, dressage, eventing, hunting, team chasing, pony racing, pony club activities, riding club activities, endurance and much more. It’s your saddle, tell us what you want!!!!
