Stubben

Renowned for their quality and longevity, Stubben bridles are made in Germany from the finest, most supple leathers and you will not be disappointed with these beautiful products – you can really feel the difference, and so will your horse.

From the most affordable Leitrim bridle (which is softly padded on the headstall, noseband and browband) to the luxurious, super smart Switch bridle (a double that converts to a snaffle) to the best selling Stubben Freedom bridle which has no poll pressure, avoids all the major facial nerves and allows the horse full sight, we offer the full range and more. We also offer a 14 day trial on the Freedom bridle and the wonderful Equi – soft girth. The fact that we have virtually no returns speaks volumes in itself.

  • Stubben items are a bit more expensive than others I have seen - are they worth the money? 

    • Whilst we feel that all the items we sell are very good, for leatherwork Stubben is really quite exceptional. Founded in Germany on March 15th 1894, Stubben have always been renowned as master saddle makers and saddlery suppliers, using the finest quality leathers and materials to create their range. Once you have had Stubben items, you will always use Stubben.

  • I would like to try a Stubben Equi-soft girth as I have heard they are really great - can I do this? 

    • Yes, no problem. Here at Elite Saddlery we decided to offer you the chance to convince yourself of the benefits of the Equi-soft girth, so offer a trial for 14 days to see if you (and of course your horse) like it. Simply purchase it as normal and if after the 14 days are up you cannot see the benefits then simply return it to us and we'll refund you less a small trial fee (as we can't then sell it as new of course) More than just another girth – it's a unique experience The sophisticated and exclusive system made of elastic strips allows a perfect girth-pressure-distribution. As a direct consequence, the horse’s complaints when being girthed are reduced significantly (e.g. kicking, biting, refusal of the girth). Its special design allows the horse to expand its chest when needed during exercise. The elastic rings expand and contract with the rib cage, maintaining a uniform tension. A comparative study of various girths certifies: "All horses, without exception, maintained lower heart rates when using the Equi-Soft-girth". Important advice: To correctly use the girth, the centre of the girth must be positioned symmetrically on the horse’s centre. Never adjust only one side. The tension needs be equal on both sides. This product managed to be a finalist at the Spoga Horse Innovation Award 2012. The unique design allows the girth cover to be changed within seconds. The Equi-Soft-girth is available in black, ebony and tobacco. The lengths vary from 40 to 150 cm and the girths pads are available in Vachette leather, neoprene or lambskin.
