By working with many of the world’s best saddle makers Lariot has built a product range and a depth of knowledge that is second to none. For Lariot it is important to work with a company that has a good reputation and that you can trust. That’s why they have chosen Koskisen Thin Plywood.

“The saddle tree is the base on which the rest of the saddle is built.  It is the structural frame of a horse riding saddle. It insures the proper fit of the horse, balance of the rider and overall strength of the saddle and provides a bearing surface to protect the horse from the weight of the rider, thus greatly increasing the comfort of the horse”, explains General Manager Gaynor Lorenzo from the Lariot, United Kingdom based saddle tree manufacturer. They have grown to be Europe’s leading saddle tree company by helping our customers to be the first in their own specific areas of expertise.

Lariot has been established in the equestrian supply business for over 20 years.  Initially the company acted as a wholesaler of leather and associated fittings for the saddle making industry. In December 2001, the wholesale supply side of the business was sold so full concentration could be given the wooden saddle tree production.

A program of constant investment in the latest technology has placed Lariot at the forefront of Saddle Tree Manufacturing.  By working with many of the world’s best saddle makers they have built a product range and a depth of knowledge that is second to none.

“We have always found Koskisen’s products to be of high quality and backed by a great aftersales team.  It is manufacturing and things don’t always go to plan. It’s how you deal with it that makes the difference”

Gaynor Lorenzo

 

With the introduction of full CAD/CAM facilities Lariot can take existing patterns of tree and replicate them with perfect symmetry and dimensional accuracy.  CNC machining allows them to create beneficial features in the tree that are unique to Lariot.  These include cantle recesses, bar recesses and internal head enforcement.

High-quality birch plywood products and great after sales team are key to successful cooperation

Historically saddle trees have been produced from birch plywood. For Lariot it is important to work with a company that has a good reputation and you can trust. That’s why they have chosen KoskiPly. KoskiPly is very easy to handle in production: it can be sawn to form and the production residue is easy to recycle or dispose by incineration. KoskiPly’s quality is consistently good and the thickness is standard. KoskiPly adjusts itself to horse’s back’ and is also very easy and cost-efficient to modify to different saddle models.

“We have always found Koskisen’s products to be of high quality and backed by a great aftersales team.  It is manufacturing and things don’t always go to plan. It’s how you deal with it that makes the difference”, describes Gaynor the cooperation with Koskisen.
