Butet is known for their beautiful, minimalist saddles that aim to bring horse and rider as close as possible, and every saddle that leaves their workshop is the epitome of close contact, lightness, and harmony.
Founded in 1986, Butet continues to make their saddles out of their workshop in Saumur, France (where they were awarded the prestigious label of French Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant) where they use leather of exceptional quality to ensure decades of harmonious riding from every saddle.
Butet saddles typically offer a flat seat for the greatest freedom of movement while jumping, combined with a soft, calf leather flap for security, though you’ll also find Butet saddles for sale with a half deep seat, deep seat, in a dressage cut, and their unique “practice saddle” which removes all of the extra “bulk” of a normal saddle so the rider can work on their balance and position.
Butet saddles retain their quality and value for well over a decade, so they are a great investment if you are looking to buy a secondhand Butet saddle for sale online. Their saddle fitters are also happy to help you fit and adjust your secondhand Butet saddle so you can get the perfect fit for you and your horse.
Along with their saddles, Butet also makes a range of other tack such as dressage girths, stud girths, reins, bridles, fly veils, saddle pads, martingales, stirrup leathers, and more.
