Per the manufacturer: "The technical specifications and the feeling for the rider remain unchanged, with the same narrow, deep twist. The rider is seated very close to the horse without hindering its movements. The blocks are innovative, as they are now curved to follow the anatomy of the horse. They have been designed to follow the somatic development of the horse’s shoulder, to enhance balance with horse’s natural shape while respecting its musculo-skeletal conformation. The proportion between structure and softness adds to the block’s comfort and optimizes synergy between the horse and the rider. The anatomically shaped panels ensure maximum freedom of movement for the trapezius muscles.
Our innovative X-Technology saddle has been conceived to guarantee rider comfort, the gateway to enhanced sports performance. The rear part presents two holes with an elastic membrane where the rider's ischium comes into contact with the saddle, for a softer and more comfortable seat.
Panels fitted onto this tree guarantee comfort and stability for the horse's back. They are made from an elastic honeycomb membrane and a layer of soft rubber. Dacron synthetic fiber is the material of choice for stuffing."
