Sensation Saddles

The saddle I bought – the closest thing to riding bareback! Sensation Harmony Element!

I have always loved riding bareback. Over the years, I have migrated toward lighter and softer saddles, eventually ending up with treeless saddles. In 2011, I tried my first Sensation treeless saddle. I bought it and became a sales rep.

Designed by Dana Johnsen, a long-time endurance rider and natural  hoof care specialist, the saddles are enjoyed just as much by my Mangalarga Marchador horses!!!  The fit is excellent for their build – round and short backed.  Their stride and ease of movement is better.

There are many different models from traditional to trail; English, Western, Dressage and Hybrids.  If you are interested in learning more about the saddles and why they are so different, please visit the entire Nicker’s Saddlery website by clicking HERE!

You can custom build your own saddle to your specifications.  Timing for that is up to 16 weeks (including shipping)
