Sommer are a top quality German brand retailing new between $5000 and $6000. This is a rare find second hand in Australia.
Sommer saddles have a "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.
The close contact panels are traditional flock and are only a half panel over the shoulder to allow better freedom of the shoulder.
For the rider, a deep seat, narrow twist and a single flap with a contoured surface block for a close contact leg.
