Used Beval Saddles
At the time, American saddles were fit to the rider, with little consideration for the comfort of the horse. Bev sought high-quality strap goods that were equal parts functional for and tailored to horse and rider — without compromising classic beauty. Sourcing materials directly from England, land of the world’s finest leather goods in those days, Bev created the Gladstone line. The first line set a lasting industry standard with his triple-fit model: fit for the rider, fit for the horse, fit for the job. A signature of the Gladstone saddle was a “numbered tree” system that accounted for changes in a rider and horse over time by adjusting the saddle, not the horse.
