Leathers

The type of leather of your saddle can change the appearance a lot. The type of saddle you purchase is made of certain types of leather as standard. It is possible to have the sweat leaf, the seat and/or the bends in a different type of leather than the standard. All leathers are tanned and treated in such a way that they immediately feel supple.

Leonie Evink

I was looking for a saddle that was comfortable and also offered me strength. In addition to my wishes, the saddle also had to fit my horse well. Ezelien then pointed me to the Fryso saddle, and since then I don't want anything else.

Lora Burger

A suitable saddle is very important. On advice we bought a new Fryso saddle. Our horse immediately started to finish her movements better. I would recommend both the filling service and the fitting service for a new saddle, they are real professionals, come from the sport themselves and see very well what the horse and rider needs.
