The Aldea is shaped to avoid any restriction on the back of the shoulder, a cut away sweat flap allows extra room for shoulder rotation.  The result is a noticeable increase in the horses forward movement and ability to extend.


The panels feature the AMS panel system, designed to absorb concussion and evenly distribute pressure. The AMS panels can be re -flocked and adjusted just like a traditional flock filled saddle. The tree is lightweight carbon fibre, with a easy change gullet, currently fitted with a wide gullet. 


The tree and panel shape will suit a horse with a back with some shape front to back rather than flat and ideal for a horse that needs extra flock in the wither pockets, such as many Thoroughbred types, old horses. The panels are compact in overall length so fitting a shorter back should be no problem. 


For the rider, a deep soft seat and a surface mounted knee block.
