How long does an Albion saddle last?
The lifespan of an Albion saddle will depend on various factors such as how often it is used, how well it is maintained, and the environment in which it is stored. With proper care, an Albion saddle can last for many years.
Can I use a dressage saddle for other disciplines, such as eventing or jumping?
While a dressage saddle can be used for other disciplines, it is not ideal for jumping as it is not designed for the added security needed for jumping. Eventing is a little more flexible as dressage and show jumping is part of the discipline, but cross-country would not be ideal with a dressage saddle.
How do I care for my Albion saddle?
Albion recommends cleaning the leather regularly with a gentle leather cleaner and conditioning the leather with a leather conditioner. The saddle should also be stored in a dry, cool place to prevent damage from humidity and temperature changes.
What types of products does Albion offer?
Albion offers a variety of equestrian products, including saddles, bridles, stirrups, girths, and more. These are not sold at Our Saddlery.
