This saddle is the perfect solution for horses and ponies that are wider and flatter across their backs. The tree in this saddle is designed by us with the typical native equine in mind. The points of the tree are short, and the rails are very flat to accommodate the shape of their back. The head of the tree is also quite low and the shape of the tree when you look at it front ways on is a U shaped tree. We have kept the panel depth shallow and the channel wide to alleviate any side-to-side movement and to ensure there is an even contact through the panels with the horses back. The tree is strained in such a way as to give the rider the feeling of a narrow twist even though the horse may be extra wide. Available as a dual flap fixed block, dual flap moveable Velcro blocks or mono flap.
