Hastilow Competition Saddles is a family run company which produces bespoke and custom saddlery. Started by Frank Hastilow in Walsall in the early 1960’s both boys; Ian (now president) and Andrew (master designer and saddle maker) grew up to be Master Saddlers. Ian moved to southern England and in 1980 opened Haslemere Saddlery. Andrew and Frank followed him to develop Hastilow Competition Saddles. This lovely saddle has a 17ins seat, with a medium width fitting which we measured to be 4.5ins. The gullet has a generous width at 3ins at the waist of the saddle.
