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.
Because our saddle trees have been designed by our research department in a large choice of sizes and shapes, we are able to customize your saddle to your horse's exact specifications.

Roberto Rasia works for 28 years in the equestrian world. After 25 years to Prestige Italia Spa, whose research and development division he managed during 15 years, he then decided to take advantage his long-time experience and to transfer his technical knowledge in an ambitious project: Erreplus Saddlery Srl. It is the name of its new company, but above all it is experts' team in the sector of the riding that listens carefully what the rider and the horse tell them, transforming these knowledge into absolutely innovative saddles.
From the strength of their considerable experience of the equestrian world, Jean-François Meyer and Emile Goré designed the Meyer saddle in collaboration with veterinarians and top riders, in particular Phillipe Rozier and Eric Navet. This saddle resolves the problems previously encountered in adapting the saddle to the equine back. Unique and innovative, Meyer saddles are the subject of permanently ongoing research. The design of the tree, and the shape and positioning of the panels allow total freedom of the horse's shoulders and maximum comfort in the withers. Wide and high support frees up the spine. This design creates optimum conditions for proper functioning of the horse's back.
For riders, it provides comfort, technique, and balance. It is appropriate for pleasure and competition riders who are concerned with the well-being of their horses.
Meyer saddles are made in France with French leathers and trees. The models are registered in order to guarantee their technical advantage.
The tree in Prestige saddles has been designed to adapt perfectly to the horse and to maintain the best seat for the rider. Made of a special mix of fibres, it is at least 1 kg lighter than traditional saddles and needs no metal reinforcement. This saddle has advantages over those made of natural materials, like wood. Though wood is elastic, it still has “life” in it. For this reason as atmospheric conditions change and the years go by the characteristics of the wood change, becoming less stable and less resistant. The Prestige tree, on the other hand, was purpose designed to provide the same elasticity as one made of wood while, at the same time, ensuring maximum stability over time. It is no chance matter that it offers a lifetime’s guarantee, except in the case of an accident. In addition, the width of a Prestige saddle can always be altered. It can be narrowed or widened, depending on the shape of the horse, without having to take the saddle apart. For this reason even when the shape of the horse changes the product remains usable.
