SPECIALTY SADDLES

Danny has used his expertise to design saddles for para-equestrian riders with special needs, many examples below.
 

July 27, 2007 --- The Canadian Para-Equestrian Team placed 11 out of 34 nations competing at the 2007 Para-Equestrian Dressage World Championships, held July 18-22 at Hartpury College, UK. The Canadian Team had four riders riding in DK Saddles designed by Danny Kroetch.


On May 31st you have brought me my new saddle. I would like to let you know that the saddle is perfect ! Just like you said to me: "You're gonna love it". First I had to get used to it, but now I feel safe and confident when I am riding my horse. My horse also loves it. She feels comfortable and is moving in a different way. We have made great progress the last few weeks. Thanks very much for designing this saddle for me.

I would like to inform you about my progress since I’m riding with the saddle you designed for me. Nothing but  positive experiences. First, the saddle is safe, which was important because in the past I lost my balance and  tumbled off. The straps with which my legs are fixedhave been loosened. Everything works in that respect. Second the goal I set myself to be able to gallop again (despite my disability) was achieved 2 weeks ago. You promised me, that I would  love the saddle. I tell you indeed I love it and you can imagine that I am over  the moon !!
