The XT allows you to maintain balance and control in the saddle. Its design positions the stirrups slightly forward to preven the rider's feet from falling behind their center of balance. The narrow feeling ground seat keeps the rider centered, stable, and confident for fast runs. This saddle is comfortable enough to ride all day and has a classic look and design. It is Chocolate rough out leather with San Carlos tooling. The back D cutout in in the skirt relieves billet pressure. Both billets are extra strong with extra body, and they feature holes from top to bottom for closer, more precise adjustments. This saddle comes with a 7" contoured flank cinch.
