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.
