The design of this jumping saddle is meant to turn heads, with fine attention to detail to complement your meticulous show-ring turnout. It features classic styling in European leather that delivers practicality with a great look.
With all the benefits of Horse and Riders Technology (HART), you can feel confident this saddle is as practical as it is comfortable. HART has been shown to be transformative for horses and riders. It offers:
- Protective cushioning with the CAIR® Cushion System, which uses air to distribute the rider’s weight fluidly across the horse’s back and work with the horse’s moving muscles.
- Precision custom fit with the EASY-CHANGE™ Fit Solution, comprised of the EASY-CHANGE Gullet system and the EASY-CHANGE Riser system. Riders can select the optimal gullet width for the horse’s current shape and muscling, and make adjustments within the saddle panels for optimal balance and clearance. All adjustments are measurable, symmetrical and completely reversible.
- Ergonomic flex through the lightweight and durable Elastiflex Tree, which provides the lateral flexion to work with the horse’s muscular movement in every stride.
- Free movement supported by Performance Panel Technology shaped to support the horse’s natural motion and positioned to create a wide channel to clear the spine.
- Superior rider performance aided by Comfort Seat Technology. The seat gently supports the rider’s ability to move with the horse.
Other key features of this leather jump saddle include:
- Open jump seat, ensuring your freedom to alter your position in unison with your horse.
