At Schneiders, we offer cutback saddles and compatible cutback saddle pads. The Joseph Sterling® deep seat saddle uses a less bulky design for optimal comfort for the horse.

Dura-Tech® makes durable and well-designed saddle pads that are made to fit cutback saddles. You’ll also find a compatible Joseph Sterling contour shaped girth.

What is a Cutback Saddle?

Most horses can use a regular, standard sized saddle. However, certain horses that have conformational problems can be difficult to fit with a saddle. For these horses, the cutback saddle was invented. If a horse has especially high withers, a regular saddle can cause rubbing and discomfort, and sometimes, it can also restrict their movement. The cutback saddle solves these problems.

Joseph Sterling Cutback Saddle and Girth

The Joseph Sterling Millennium 4000 Deep Seat is a cutback style saddle endorsed by leading trainers and featuring close contact panels and extremely durable English tanned buffalo leather. This saddle gives you a very close feel between you and your horse. The less cumbersome and more streamlined design is also more comfortable for the horse and is designed for a closer fit. Their Millennium 3000 contour shaped girth is made from supple Sedgwick or England leather and features a wide foam padded belly band for optimal comfort. It’s easy to adjust and has stainless steel roller buckles. This girth is especially designed to be used with this cutback saddle.

They include the Kiesner close contact pad, made from wool felt and durable, soft Herculon fabric; the pro air pad, which is lightweight and durable; and the shock saver gel pad, which is therapeutic and shock absorbing.
