Do your back a favor

Designed with a unique, contoured saddle shape, Workhorse Saddle Chairs have been scientifically designed by a Chiropractor to comfortably maintain your spine in the perfect sitting position.

Our chairs promise to improve your health and well-being and reduce back, neck and shoulder pain, muscle strain, headaches and weariness caused by sitting for long periods in the wrong position.

Finished with A-Grade fabric, premium stretch vinyl or luxury leather (as well as custom finishes and colors), the Workhorse Saddle Chair does not sacrifice style or comfort. It incorporates meticulous attention to detail and a pleasing aesthetic that would undoubtedly stand out in any home, office or business.

Here’s what people are saying about our Workhorse Saddle Chairs…

We simply have to change the way we sit

Sitting down is slowly killing us.
Our bodies simply cannot maintain their ideal position when sitting in a regular chair for any length of time.

Health impacts include:

  • Posture deterioration
  • Back pain and muscle strain
  • Spinal degeneration
  • Arthritis
  • Headaches
  • Poor circulation
  • Abdominals weaken
  • Metabolic problems, such as diabetes

Conventional chairs force our body into a 90-degree angle between our back and our thighs, putting enormous strain on the back and shoulders. Our body has evolved with ingenious mechanics to maintain balancing our weight in the most efficient way. The head sits directly over our pelvis and is held there using minimal force from the muscles on our back, neck and shoulder as well as our front muscles from the abdominals, pectorals and core muscles.
This is the position we assume when standing or walking. And it’s also the position our spine takes when riding a horse.

Why a saddle?

Easy. It creates the perfect sitting posture.

David France, chiropractor and founder, brainstormed and designed the Workhorse Saddle Chair concept from a personal, direct experience; to help fund his education, he worked with horses. Through France’s riding and anatomical and Chiropractic studies, he discovered that when people sit in a saddle, the body assumes an ideal spinal position. After many years of research and prototyping, he came up with his final concept for the Workhorse Saddle Chair.

Sitting in a saddle, our three spinal curves are maintained and our pelvis rolls forward to sit directly under our head and shoulders, with our thighs sloping down at a 45-degree angle to the ground and approximately 135-degrees to our back.

This new way of sitting stimulates and strengthens the back, abdominal and core muscles and eliminates the health issues caused by sitting at a 90-degree angle. Your posture will also gradually correct itself, as you spend more and more time using Workhorse Saddle Chairs.
