God put gaited horses together differently when compaired to trotting breeds. The "Trail Gaiter" saddle was created to provide your gaited horse the freedom of movement required to perform his unique gait. The seat in this saddle is made of impact foam which absorbs shock to eliminate transference between horse and rider. The Viscoelastic material conforms for ultimate support and comfort. The 3-way adjustable position in skirt rigging allows free shoulder action and enables multiple rigging options with rear angled dee. This saddle features Ergobalance stirrups which positions rider's feet and legs for decreased knee and ankle fatique and promotes more balanced riding.
