DP Saddlery Quantum Short and Light Endurance Trail Saddles
DP Saddlery has designed a quality Endurance Trail Saddle called the Quantum Short and Light. This is an ideal saddle for long trail and endurace rides. It is built on a Flexible Tree and has a unique feature - an ADJUSTABLE GULLET! You can adjust the gullet from a narrow to an extra wide with a turn of an Allen Wrench.
This makes it very easy to ride several horses in the same saddle, solves saddle fit problems, and can adjust to your horse as he gains or looses weight or muscle.
Wool flocked panels are comfortable for horse and rider and can be traditionally re-flocked if ever needed or for a customized saddle fit.
Another feature unique to these saddles is the Ultra-Flex tree made of high quality carbon fiber, and that the panels are attached only at the front and the back of the tree. This provides maximum comfort for the horse while turning and bending. It also eases the pressure normally applied to the spine, as the panels give slightly so that the spine doesn't have to.
The short base also helps to fit short back horses. Over all saddle length is approximately 20", depending on the seat size. Seat is softly padded for comfort even on the longest rides. Beautiful chestnut or Havanna leather with border tooling. Matching fenders included. Black leather Nappa or Nubuck seat, pommel and panels.
