Pegasus Butterfly™ Saddles continuously self-adjust as your horse changes in muscle-tone and even with each stride, from relaxed walk to the highest level of collection. Pegasus say "This one saddle will fit any horse"!
The Butterfly™ short saddle panels and and saddle's unique design moves the center of gravity forward for a more well-balanced ride, taking pressure of your horse's back. This helps prevent hock and back problems and puts your weight in the same place where you would ride bareback. The natural and healthy place for your horses back.
This saddle has a generous deep 18" seat, if you need a large seat and ride a short back horse you just found the saddle that will suit both you and your horse. This saddle could be used on a horse with an average or long back too. They say it will fit any horse!
Double stirrup bars give the saddle the flexibility to suit riders of all sizes, long leg riders will benefit from the use of the forward stirrup option, while shorter riders may prefer the further back position. Riding a young horse and want to ride off the back the forward stirrup would usually give the better balance but you have the option to see what works for you.
These saddles are not available to buy new in Australia, to import one would cost around $6000AUD and you wouldn't be able to try it!
This saddle comes with a saddle pad with shims to assist in fitting a variety of horses.
