This saddle has a multi-tasking appeal whether you're hunting across fields, riding hunter/jumper or simply pleasure riding.  It is also available in various styles to suit different riders' needs.  The extra forward model accommodates long legged riders, allowing their knees to fit the flaps correctly - see model A702XF.  Custom models are available on special order**.  

Note: the Avalon fits 1” larger than it measures.  If you normally use a 17 ½” saddle, try a 16 ½” Avalon. 

Smith-Worthington incorporates over 200 years of saddle making knowledge and some of the world's finest materials in these saddles.  Features* include: 

  • Steel & wood spring trees with strong overlapping steel head plates allow tree adjustment many times as your horse muscles and matures or if you get a different horse.
  • Gussetted panels with virgin wool flock stuffing allow proper fit to your horse.
  • “Fired” (pre-stretched) pure linen webbing insures that the seat never sags - you sit in a “hammock” of web and never hit the steel bars of the tree.
  • Deeply recessed stirrup bars nearly eliminate stirrup leather bulge under the skirts.
  • Made in England.
  • lifetime tree warranty.
  • Demo Avalon saddles are available - try one today.


*See our “Quality” page for photos and more details about why these features are important.

Hint: Test ride the Avalon, SW Trainer, Beaufort EC and Beaufort Lux saddles to determine which combination of seat width, twist width and working center works for you.
