In 1968 Philippe Guillot de Suduiraut created MACEL saddles, revolutionizing horse riding with his new sports saddle design : finely crafted, light and with a flexible tree to allow close contact with the horse. In 2008, the continuation of both the brand and the design naturally fell to Patrick FESQUET who had been with the MACEL saddler’s since 1987.

100% handmade in the workshops of the Loire in France. MACEL saddles are precision technical instruments which allow for very fine riding. They are the very embodiment of a prestigious know-how and craftsmanship which has evolved over time, developing the designs and choice of materials. Each saddle leaving the Macel workshop is unique.

Custom-made MACEL saddles are developed from your and your horse’s morphology. A tailor-made saddle will not be suitable for all horses.

If you want a saddle to use on many of your horses, MACEL saddles can be made with a standard size.


MACEL Sellier is very attached to saddles 100% made in France in order to be able to guarantee the product and preserve the know-how. Maintaining production on one site, with each saddle produced by one craftsman ensures intimate knowledge and total control over the quality of the final product.

French saddlery is the result of traditional craftsmanship which is envied throughout the world. It’s important to preserve it, protect its secret and above all, to resist the temptation of cheaper outsourcing.


The MACEL saddle production is based on four standard size :

  • PT small,
  • TM medium,
  • TMG medium-large,
