Introducing our latest take on the MVP – the Series 2.  Developed to further enhance the all-important saddle fit and suit a broader range of horses than ever before. With the same tree and base design, rest assured you will enjoy all the benefits the MVP is renowned for:

 

The Series 2 comes with the new generation wool flocked panels, offering an ideal fit and superb comfort for both horse and rider. The tree is the same as the tree that has proven itself in over 2,000 MVP of the series 1, but it now has four billet points with replaceable billets attached to it.

 

“Polo is a sport with so many different and conflicting requests - the more you can do to ensure your horse is getting a clear, pain-free message, the better your horse will play for you. The more comfortable you are while asking for these requests, the clearer your message and the more relaxed you will be to concentrate on your game and enjoy our amazing sport.”

 

The MVP polo saddle - the perfect fit for horse and player - chosen by Adolfo Cambiaso, Facundo Pieres, Pelón Stirling, Facu Sola, Henry Porter and Mike Azzaro

 

The perfect fit for your horse - allows your horses to play at their very best

 

  • The largest panels of any polo saddle - distribute your weight where it needs to be (30% in front, 40% in the middle, and 30% at the back), and minimise pressure per sq.in. / cm2
  • The saddle tree rises at the front and the panels are sculpted to eliminate the risk of pressure points on the side of the withers and to maximise freedom of movement of the scapula
  • Similarly, with the saddle tree rising at the back and the sculpted panels, the MVP minimises pressure on the loins, particularly when your horse's legs are underneath your horse and it’s back is raised
  • A wide gullet / spinal clearance ensures that there are no pressure points along the spine
  • The MVP Series 2 is available with two different styles of wool flocked panels:
  1. Narrow gusset (medium) - ideal for most shapes of horses as they can be continuously adjusted to accomodate any change in shape
  2. Wide gusset (thicker panels) - ideal for horses with high withers and narrow shoulders
  • Exchangeable gullet plates ensure perfect fit for all shapes and widths, providing exceptional clearance at withers. Supplied with the MVP in three sizes, and can be exchanged in less than 5 minutes
  • Gullet plates made from spring steel that won't spread over time (many polo saddles will spread over time causing reduced clearance between withers and pommel). Even if your MVP was run over by a truck, the damaged gullet plate can simply be replaced in a few minutes.
  • Light, yet strong synthetic saddle tree (polypropylene copolymer) with spring steel reinforcements. The saddle tree comes with a 15 year warranty for any material or manufacturing defects.
  • The MVP saddle tree has a natural flex, both longitudinally and diagonally, allowing the MVP to follow the horse's movements, providing more freedom of movement and further reducing the risk of pressure being exerted on the loins, and 
  • A slight elevation at the front and the back of the saddle tree, which in combination with the sculpted panels, provides both a perfect fit and freedom of movement of the shoulder blade and the loins to allow your horses to fully utilise their body


Perfect fit for you - secure, comfortable in all circumstances 

 

  • The elevation at the front of the saddle and the enlarged panels, accommodate the player’s ideal position over the horse’s shoulders (without placing the saddle itself too far forward, which tends to limit shoulder movement and shifts more weight to the back of the saddle, onto the loins of the horse)
  • The design of the saddle tree gives you a lower centre of gravity, improving the combined balance of horse and player
  • Your ability to use your thighs, from knee to groin are facilitated by a triangular shape (as opposed to barrel shaped, as seen on many polo saddles) and larger flaps, which provide more contact surface for your thighs to grip in the half seat
  • Recessed stirrup bars also increases the usable gripping area and riding comfort
  • Rough-out leather surfaces further enhances your grip
  • Comfortable and secure seat, regardless of your level


Perfect weight

 

A number of features combine to make the MVP lighter than most polo saddles: 11-12 lbs (5-5.5 kgs), depending on size):

 

  • Synthetic saddle tree (polypropylene copolymer), reinforced with spring steel
  • Hollow piping
  • D-rings replaced by a small slit for attaching ball carriers or securing straps 


Perfect quality

  • Exceptionally strong saddle tree - we offer a 5 year warranty for any material or manufacturing defects
  • Spring steel gullet plates that will not spread over time (even if they did, they can be replaced in less than 5 minutes)
  • Extremely durable billets - buffalo hide with a raw hide inside
  • Rough-out leather that outlasts suede by many years

    The Ainsley "MVP" saddle is hand crafted from select Havana brown or black leather hides in a roughout style. This "inside out" style gives the saddle more grip and longevity than a saddle covered with suede. Beautiful saddle which will give any serious polo player an edge on the field.

    We generally stock the "MVP Series" in 17, 18" and 19" with narrow gusset panels, which will suit most horses. Wide gusset panels for horses with higher withers are made on request.
