Strada St Christopher endurance saddle Made by Strada Saddles in the Uk.
A unique tree design which flexes and moulds to the horses shape, the saddle sits very close to and “around”, rather than “on” the horse, resulting in superior stability. Precision-moulded shock-absorbent panels, react to heat and pressure by softening and adapting completely to the horse’s contours. The tree is made from laminated plywood, leather, carbon fibre and kevlar, its rails are flexible and move with the horse’s back, they are parallel to the horse’s spine along their entire length, ensuring optimal distribution of the rider’s weight. The points play no part in weight carrying, they simply provide lateral stability.
Strada saddles are made on a variety of tree shapes to suit different back shapes, this one is on an "L" tree with 30mm panels, designed for wide- low withered horses such as Fresians, Haflingers, Welsh Cobs etc which have a gentle curve from wither to croup.
Made in 2016, still in excellent near new condition.
Includes original Strada saddle cover.
