LittleJoe saddles are superb for therapeutic riding
and hippotherapy. In a LittleJoe, it's easy to feel the muscular
movements of the horse, making it easier for the rider to follow
those movements and engage the proper muscles. Close contact
with the horse also improves balance and coordination, and makes
the work much easier for aides walking alongside. Finally, the
body warmth of the horse comes up through the saddle to the
rider, aiding in relaxation and comfort.
For security, LittleJoe therapy saddles have two firm
crosswise handles at the front, enabling the rider to get a
good grip while not interfering with the sense of balance.

NOTE: when ordering a saddle, please specify regular or long billets.
There is no charge for longer billets AT THE TIME YOU ORDER, but
if you return a saddle to have the billets changed, there
will be a $40.00 charge because of the labor involved.
