Humanscale Pony Stool for Office

Freedom Saddle 
Saddle’s ergonomic seat ensures hips are supported and tailbone pressure is alleviated for long comfort, putting the sitter in the ideal ergonomic position.

Freedom Pony Saddle 
Pony Saddle offers the same comfort, versatility, and ergonomic support as Saddle but features a smaller seat that is ideal for more compact workspaces.

Active Pony
Active Pony was designed to encourage movement by gently rocking 7° in all directions. This added movement activates a wider variety of core muscles, which helps build strength and minimizes fatigue. Active Pony features locking casters that stay in place while you are engaging the stool. It also offers the same ergonomic design, support, and comfort as our other Freedom stools.
