    Ein toller Fellsattel zeichnet sich in erster Linie insofern aus, dass er genauso klasse für den Gaul und für den Reiter sein kann. Dies muss vorrangig der ausschlaggebende Punkt bei dem Einkauf des Sattels sein. Nun kann man ins Detail gehen und detaillierte Kriterien der separaten Variationen bedenken. Natürlich spielt auch an dieser Stelle das Alter eine wichtige Rolle. Für Kinder eignen sich insbesondere anti-rutsch Sattel. Bei Erwachsenen kann jener Punkt fast vernachlässigt werden. Ebenso maßgeblich ist natürlich der Komfort des Sattels. An dieser Stelle bietet sich insbesondere Lammfell an. Dieser Stoff oder das Fell ist ungemein weich und ebenfalls schonend fürs Pferd. Der Fellsattel aus Lammfell ist mit großer Wahrscheinlichkeit die erste Alternative die ein Pferdeliebhaber treffen könnte. Jedoch liegt dieser Sattel ebenfalls kostentechnisch wesentlich höher als andere.
