Sommer are a top quality German brand retailing new between $5000 and $6000.
Sommer saddles have a synthetic "Flexus" tree which flexes with the movement of the horse’s back while still retaining its dimensional stability. It is adjustable to fit sizes 27 - 38 ( narrow to XX wide). Adjustments can me made an infinite number of times. Currently it measures a wide fit.
Shoulder freedom is achieved with the half front panels.
The panels are very compact, as small as many 16.5" saddles so no need to compromise seat size to fit a shorter back.
For the rider, a deep seat, narrow twist and a monoflap flap with a contoured surface block for a close contact leg.
Made in 2009
Includes fleece cover.
