Sideline Products, LLC, is a southern York County, Pennsylvania-based designer and manufacturer. Its new product, Saddle Sidekicks, was founded out of necessity for both the smaller rider and the horse. Smaller saddles can pinch and irritate the horse, limiting comfort and performance. The Saddle Sidekick is designed so that the rider is able to maintain proper riding position where heel, hip and shoulder align, preventing bad habits from starting with young riders.
The Saddle Sidekick, a patented kid booster seat for a western saddle, fits over a full-sized saddle in seconds and is made of durable EVA foam in fashionable, fun colors. It also has a laminated neoprene bottom for extra grip. Saddle Sidekicks is a safe alternative for smaller riders, enabling them to utilize a larger, properly-fitted saddle, which is safer and more comfortable for the rider and the horse.
Saddle Sidekicks now carries a full line of support products for the Saddle Sidekick, including stirrups, replacement straps and cords, and tapaderos. Saddle Sidekicks are available with and without tapedaros, and durable elastic cords allow for quick attachment to the front and rear of the saddle.
