SEAT & FENDERS

From now on all Flex Fit models can be ordered with an equitation seat and equitation fenders. The changed built of the seat provides a deep, straight dressage seat. The equitation fenders are moved back, immediately placing the riders leg perfectly underneath them.

 

Please note that the pictured leather colors are not necessarily true to tone, and serve only as a sample photo. With leather being a natural product, slight differences are possible as well as small scarring. These are not production errors, but rather a sign of authenticity and high quality leather. Depending on your computer screen and resolution settings, colors may differ and guarantees are not given. 

 

SADDLE LEATHER

When we build your saddle, we are committed to using only the best vegetable tanned leather we can get our hands on. We are offering a large variety of colors to choose from, leaving you with only one question: Which one is your favorite? The appearance of your saddle is greatly influenced by a combination of Saddle Leather (Smooth Leather) and Seat Leather (Nappa- or Nubuck Leather).

 

SEAT LEATHER

You can choose from three different types of leather when deciding on your seat leather. Nappa Leather is a soft leather, with a lightly structured surface. Nubuck & Aspen Leather is of velvet-like feel with a rough out structure on the surface, which helps tremendously with adherence. Special colors available upon request (Blue, Green, Yellow, Red, pattern, etc.) - upcharge applies.

RIGGINGS

The term "rigging" is used to refer to how the cinch strap attaches to the saddle to hold the saddle in place.

Most popular riggings are C and D Rings. Most of our riggings are built In-Skirt, meaning that the rings are directly built into the leather skirting of the saddle. Because of that, there is very little material between the riders leg and the horse and enables a closer contact and correct riding aids. Rigging options are model-dependent - Please ask us! Errors, changes, and color deviations possible.
