For the rider: lovely secure feeling saddle with a narrow twist. It offers the rider comfort and freedom of movement throughout the entire time they are jumping. The cantle never interferes with the rider, especially when coming off of a fence. This saddle is especially liked by small lady riders. For the horse: The anatomically shaped panels guarantee maximum freedom of movement for the trapezius muscles. It’s a small enough saddle if your horse has a very short back. This particular saddle would suit a horse with normal withers.
