Citori Saddles with their unique design and fit, allow the horse significant freedom of movement. This enables the horse to be ridden in comfort, usually bringing about improvements in muscle condition, performance, movement, work attitude and behaviour. Most horses under a correctly fitting Citori Saddle usually show a marked improvement, while allowing the rider a natural correct position of balance.

Citori Saddle System

Our Saddling Fitting System, Monitoring System, Padding System, and Redevelopment programme are our own design to address, what we consider, the many short falls within the industry. We are not affiliated with any other saddlers’ association. Citori Saddles are designed to work with our Saddling System for horses that are asymmetrical or have muscle atrophy.   The Saddling System allows for redevelopment, enabling the horse to regain and maintain a natural back shape. Citori Saddles and Accessories are manufactured in New Zealand, Australia, South America, and Europe.
