My name is Sandra van den Hof. Together with my partner Oscar Aerdts we represent Specialized Saddles in the Benelux. It all started years ago in my personal search for a saddle that would fit my gaited horses. I am a strong believer that a ‘gaited horse saddle’ does not exist. A saddle that fits the individual horse, that is what we need to be looking for. On top of that, the rider should be placed in a centered seat. As Centered Riding Instructor Level II, that is something I value a lot as well.
As a horse breeder and trainer I needed a saddle I could adjust myself to fit each individual horse. I ended up with a Specialized Saddle and soon my students also discovered the advantages of this unique fitting system. For both gaited and non-gaited horses Specialized Saddles offers unique options and is light weight on top of it. Finally sore backs and pressing spots are history. We invite Europeans to take a look at our website or make an appointment to visit us and see for yourself.
