Spencer Sturmey Profile

Spencer Sturmey
United Kingdom

Spencer Sturmey is an established and successful event rider, International commentator & equestrian personality in the United Kingdom.

Spencer's 4 legged friend Simon is a very large and powerful moving chestnut. Simon tends to bend on one rein. Spencer tells us he is always struggling to feel freedom of movement under saddle. The StrideFree® Melbourne Monoflap has given Simon forward movement and the ability to bend and flex more freely under saddle in ways which Spencer has never felt before.

Spencer says, "The horses back health and welfare are extremely important to me and over the last little while, I have been learning and working with Peter on how saddles should fit and the biomechanics of horses under saddles. I have been so surprised about the extent of knowledge Peter has; both for saddle design and saddle fit and I can truly say that his StrideFree® concept is a revolutionary first for saddle ideas in the U.K. I am eager to not only allow riders to ride in them and offer the luxurious experience of a Peter Horobin, but I am also learning about how to adjust them as well. So the after-service will be there alongside the product. After travelling the world commentating events I have found the equestrian community in the U.K are all about trusting a brand more than anything before they buy. I am with Peter Horobin Saddles 100%."

Spencer Says

“Peter Horobin Saddles are a new concept to the UK and I'm excited to be able to provide riders with the opportunity to ride in these beautifully crafted saddles from Australia. They are fully adaptable, super comfy and provide complete freedom for my horses”
