As riders that face many weather conditions, keeping ourselves and our saddles dry is always a challenge. Although we could make do with a quarter-sheet, dismounting is always a problem. There didn't seem to be anything we could find that met our needs, so we designed it! The result is a highly wind and water repellent riding skirt that protects our expensive saddles from rain and snow while riding.
The Discovery Trekking Outfitters Saddle Skirt is breathable, stretchy, and stays in place even in windy conditions. The garment anchors to the legs of the rider with adjustable elastic and completely covers the pommel or horn. The highly technical fabric is very water and wind repellent. The soft fabric doesn't rustle or make noise like other protective sheets. As a major bonus, you can get on and off your horse while wearing the rain skirt, as it does not attach to your horse in any way.
The Extended style was developed at the request of endurance and eventing riders and has an adjustable, retractable rump rug. The extended version can be cinched up to fit just behind the saddle, or extended to cover the rump of the horse to keep their muscles warm. The extended saddle skirt will cover the rump of larger breeds such as Warmbloods. It is approximately 78" from front to the rear when it is fully extended. If measuring from the rider's back, it is 52" to the end of the rump. The width is 58" across in total, or 29" from the rider's center back, down over the riders legs.
Skirts can be custom made in many colors, but we generally keep black (heavier weight with a fleece backing for fall and winter riding) or blue (lighter for rainy climate, not as warm) in stock in both styles. Please send a message if interested.
