Approximately a year ago Silva made the choice to start riding in Stübben saddles, a saddle company which is rich in history, and who has recently added an amazing line-up of saddle designs to their offerings. Stübben recently introduce Biomex technology into their saddle design, a technology in rider and horse comfort that truly addresses back pain and discomfort.  Since making these enhancements to their saddle design, Stübben's sales have been on fire!

Per Stübben's website:

"Stübben has partnered with Biomex* Technology Center at Klinic Gut, a leading hospital for orthopedics and sports medicine in Switzerland, to create an innovative seat design that can greatly reduce a rider’s back pain. Introducing the Patent Pending Stübben Biomex*... it will revolutionize your idea of a comfortable saddle."

"Build your own Saddle with the company that has over 100 years experience custom fitting saddles to horses and their riders. With the number one focus being the horse's comfort, Stubben saddles are built on the exclusive flexible spring tree.  Why? The flexible Spring Tree allows for optimum movement and therefore performance."

Silva recognizes the benefit of the flexible spring tree to her horses.  "My horses' backs have never been better, and I hardly have any back problems at all since I have been riding in my new saddle!!"  Silva Martin.

  1. Awesome! I've ridden in Stubben Saddles for over 40 years! Still have my original Stubben Parzival, though it is mostly retired now except for young horses that I don't want to put my newer ones on haha!

    1. Thank you for your support Laurie. We love hearing from our long term Stubben owners. You may be interested to know that Stubben is still owned by the same Stubben family and is now run by 3 Stubben brothers. We've seen many inovations over the years and it is awesome to see where they are heading today. Thanks Keith

  2. My question though is I have a terrible back from riding, but will this technology help my horse's back? While I can be selfish I really would put his before mine in this case so I'm curious to know of anyone who has used these saddles... are they good for the horse's back? I'm looking for a new saddle and wanted to hear opinions on everything.

    1. Yes Lynsey, The exculsive flexible spring tree has been used for the horses comfort for over 50 years. The Biomex seat is for the riders comfort and has been an option on our saddles for over 5 years. We have seen many results that prove, as the rider sits more comfortable in the seat with less movement due to the Biomex, that this also makes the horse more comfortable. We'll be happy to show you in person and let you try several different saddles. Visit our web site to sign up or feel free to call me. Keith Brooks at Stubben. 804-690-8002
