Our goal is the health of the horse: we design and manufacture saddles according to the needs of each pair, rider and horse, to preserve their balance and health.
Each saddle that comes out of our workshop is a unique model and customized to the rider's taste and the horse's needs.
What we do?
We use digital scanners to capture and digitize the horse, so we can make a CAD design of the saddle and reproduce with a 3D printer the necessary tree.
All our saddles share the same carbon fiber base: the tree, tailor-made for the horse and a seat chosen by the rider.
To check the saddle we use our own pressure reading system, with a wireless blanket and computer, to ensure the correct distribution of the rider's weight.
Correct distribution of rider's weight in step, trot and gallop.
Pressure reading with poor weight distribution: The right panel carries much more weight than the left.
Pressure comparison: on the left, a classic saddle, on the right our saddle. The weight distribution should be regular, a single color.
Examples of injuries: The appearance of white spots is the first visual sign of damage.
All our saddles weigh approximately 5 to 8 kg.
Price from €3000.
In summary, there are several factors that determine the optimal position of a saddle in the horse: scapulae, kidneys, dorsal, and balance, on the dorsal vertebrae 12 - 13 (vertical over the horse's center of gravity). This allows us to make rods of approximately 1300 cm² which, for a total weight of 100 kg, generate an average of 77 grams / cm², well below 110 -120 grams / cm², which is already harmful to the horse ( below, in a red line, the surface suitable for panels).
The muscles, tendons, and ligaments that make up the rib cage, if pressed, affect the horse's movement.
It is important to regularly check that the saddle fits properly: the most basic way is to check the sweatshirt after an exercise: the marks of the horse's sweat, as well as the consistency of the sweatshirt itself, should be homogeneous and regular.
Example of irregular saddle pressure: There is excessive pressure in front of the horse, pressing the back and cross of the horse.
The ischium and pubis, the lower parts of the pelvis, are where the rider contacts the seat, where he unloads his weight. The perineal canal or crotch contains the urinary system, genitals, and end of the digestive system, is a very sensitive area that can cause serious problems if pressed excessively or continuously.
All our seats have a central opening in order to eliminate pressure in the perineal canal.
