DP Saddlery El Campo Baroque Saddles - Black Nappa
DP Saddlery El Campo Baroque Saddles combine beauty and function to create a saddle that puts you in a balanced seat for arena work and the ultimate comfort out on trail for hours. The unique continuously adjustable gullet width is revolutionary in its ability to help solve saddle fitting problems to your horse. With just a turn of the Allen Wrench, you can adjust the gullet by fractions of an inch to customize the fit to your horse.
These saddles may have you reminiscing of historic times and are each a unique peace of art. Their design includes many details, that were traditionally found on baroque saddles, but their functionality is aimed with innovative and creative solutions for the modern type horses.
The El Campo Baroque Saddles are made with classical dressage training in mind, for the rider seeking for more lightness and balance, but who does not want to compromise being able to take this saddle out for hours on the trails.
El Campo Baroque saddles are built on flexible Ultra Flex Saddle trees, made out of flexible fiberglass and reinforced with Carbon Fiber along the spine. Another advantage is that the traditional wool flocked panels are only attached in the front and back of the tree, to provide maximum comfort for the horse in turns and while bending. To ease the pressure that is normally applied to the spine, the panels give slightly, so the spine doesn't have to. When panels are completely attached from front to back, it would be the spine of the horse, that would have to give to pressure. It lets the horse move freely, and encourages proper bend and freedom of the shoulder. The anatomically shaped panels also help balance the saddle and can be flocked by a professional saddle fitter to your horse if needed.
The gullet is fully adjustable, featuring a gear system with a simple Allen Wrench that comes with the saddle. The continuously adjustable gullet width can be adjusted by fractions of an inch with just a twist of the Allen Wrench that inserts into a discreet slot located on top of the pommel. No strength is required to make the change. There is a five year warranty on the Ultra Flex tree and a three year overall warranty on the saddle except for wear and tear. [The gullet width is standard 6 cm.]
