DESIGN DETAILS

CHANGEABLE GULLET BAR

Select the gullet bar to suit the horse’s wither profile. There are 8 options including half widths (N/M to XXW) in the short S-Bar for low-headed saddles and 7 options (N/M to XW/XXW) in the long R-Bar for high-headed saddles.

CHANGEABLE GIRTH STRAPS

The third billet can be unlooped and moved on to the floating balance strap attachment. This provides 4 possible girthing arrangements for you to be able to optimize saddle stability.

FLOCKING SLOTS

Two reinforced flocking slots at the front and rear allow quick adjustments to be made with the panel in situ.

100% BRITISH WOOL FLOCKING

Being a natural fibre, wool flocking provides superior softness and comfort for the horse. It moulds and settles quickly and is easy to adjust to optimize panel contact with the horse.
