An amateur rider at a young age, FrédéricButet has always been close to horses. After training as a farrier his career began by chance when he was employed in a riding saddlery. He stayed for 10 years beginning in the workshop before moving into sales.
In 1985 he decided to start his own workshop in Saumur. The Butet saddle adventure began on the French market he knew well and very quickly in 1986 the first saddles were exported. Each year since then we export to new countries making our distribution world-wide.
