Information Quantum Saddles

 

Ultra-Flex Trees

Our line of Quantum Saddles are built on our flexible Ultra-Flex Saddle tree, made out of high quality Carbon Fiber. The advantage of our Ultra-flex tree is, that although they are slightly flexible, they will not collapse underneath a rider's weight, while allowing the horse to move out freely. A great benefit of the Ultra-Flex tree is that it's also very light weight and most riders enjoy this benefit greatly. We take great pride in bringing you one of the best and most reliable flexible trees available on today's market. 

 

 

Special Tree

For riders over 200 lbs we also make a special tree, called PP10, it is reinforced alongside the seat area, to allow maximum stability

and durability while still allowing flexibility on the areas of the tree that are relevant to the horses' movement.

Please note: PP10 trees are only available to special order.

 

 

 

Gullet Width

The Quantum Saddles are available with our patented continuously adjustable gullet system, which allows the rider to easily narrow or widen the width by as much as necessary, or fine tune the fit by just a fraction of an inch via an Allen Wrench, without ever having to take the saddle apart. This system is adjustable from K1-K5 (compare to narrow through extra-wide), which is comparable to the Sprenger Measuring System for Withers Size 6 through Size 2.

The Quantum saddles are available in 4 different seat sizes (measured on the bare tree prior to being built):

Please note, that the finished seat size depends on the model and can variate slightly between different models. The seat size also depends on the type of gallery (front and back) you are choosing. When in doubt, contact one of our dealers to get the opportunity to sit in one of our saddles first before ordering.

Western Dressage Seat 

Meet one of the newest upgrade options, the Western Dressage seat and fender placement for the Quantum Line (the Quantum Sport is excluded from this upgrade).

 

This new seat upgrade encourages a correct rider seat, with a narrow twist and balanced seat it is also more comfortable for a lot of people.

 

You will be thrilled to learn that this saddle can be ridden in Working Equitation as well as Western Dressage disciplines. Of course, you can use it to trail ride as well.

 

Cellular rubber-Inlay

Soft core inlay that helps to prevent wool flocking from balling up, increasing the longevity of the wool.

Made out of high quality cellular rubber (approximately. 5 mm).
 

Synthetic wool

After the Inlay is attached inside of the panels, the panels are flocked with high quality synthetic wool.

You can choose between three different thicknesses of flocking:

Flocking

The panels of our Quantum saddles are available in various thicknesses.

• thin flocking 4 - 6 cm (approx. 1.6" - 2.4")
• medium flocking 6 - 8 cm (approx. 2.4" - 3.1")
• thick flocking  8 - 10 cm (approx. 3.1" - 4")

 

Channel Width

A remarkable advantage to mention is that the panels are only attached in the front and back of the tree, to provide maximum comfort for the horse. To ease the pressure that is normally applied to the spine, the panels give slightly, so the spine doesn't have to. When panels are completely attached (sewn) from front to back, it would be the spine of the horse, that would have to give to pressure. This is not the case in our models. The horse can bend freely, damages to the spinal area of the horse are therefore eliminated. 

Note: the channel will slightly widen or narrow when using the Allen wrench adjustable fork system.

• narrow 4 cm (approx. 1.6")

• medium 6 cm (approx. 2.4") Standard

• wide 8 cm (approx. 3.1")

 

Leather options

 

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, Nubuck, or Aspen Leather). 

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. 

 

Seat Leather

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