Trekker Bascule GP saddle is made in Europe, from quality German leather.
The flexible tree flexes longitudinally and laterally, allowing the saddle to fit a variety of back shapes and adjusts its self when the horse is in motion. The panels are very compact, finishing well under the saddle, perfect for a short back with a contact area as small as 40cm! (overall length 42cm).
A 34 width, which is the the widest available, its very wide in width, measuring 6"/15cm at the base of the pommel arch and spreads from 6" to 7"/17.5cm between the panels, we measure it to suit a low withered horse from xw to xxxxw. Trekker recommend this width for horses who are broad and with low or no withers for example most Arabs, PRE's, Lusitanos, Friesians, many Warmbloods, Fjords, Cobs, many native ponies etc.
This saddle was purchased new in 2017, still in near new condition.
These are only available new as a special order so near impossible to find second hand.
