The EDIX® Santos is made of strong quality Buffalo leather, with a beautiful suede seat in a contrasting colour making it comfortable for long rides.
With its sturdy wooden pommel and cantle, beautifully tooled leather, typical decorations and comfortable seat, the EDIX® Santos has all aspects of a traditional western saddle.
THIS LISTING IS FOR THE SADDLE ONLY.
-In contrast to all other EDIX® models, the wooden pommel of the EDIX® Santos is not interchangeable. A pommel size M is installed as standard. The wooden pommel and cantle both connect the left and right half of the saddle, together they provide stability to the saddle and comfort for the position of the rider.
-Despite the typical Western cut-out “square skirt”, this saddle is no long compared than a traditional Western saddle, which means this saddle is suitable for most horses.
-The leather and structure of this Western saddle ensure that it is also very suitable for slightly heavier riders.
-The Santos can be combined with the EDIX® saddlebags and breastplate.
Available in natural/brown or brown
Sizes small, medium and large fitted a pommel size M.
If desired, a saddle with a different pommel size can be ordered.
EDIX recommends purchasing a treeless saddle as a complete package, including stirrups, stirrup leathers and a matching saddle pad with inlays. In order to ensure constant firm fixation, we recommend a fully or partly elastic girth for a consistently fixed position. A durable elasticity tailored to your horse’s strength, which will save your saddle from undesirable forces that are caused by the varying abdominal circumference of your horse while riding. The elastic of the girth always adjusts itself in length and has the possibility to keep the saddle in place with constant tension. Besides the EDIX anatomical soft leather padded elastic girth we also offer the fully elastic girth of F.R.A.
An EDIX® treeless saddle offers your horse optimum pressure distribution using the special layers of flexible materials: EDIX® MPDS, (multiple pressure distribution system). These soft, flexible layers adapt to the anatomy of the horse, as well as the rider’s posture. An EDIX® treeless saddle optimally reacts to the movements of the horse. Partly due to this, the rider learns to adapt to the horse’s movements and, as such, develops an independent position. As a result, the movements of the horse and rider become one, and from there, excellent communication is created. Because the horse is moving much more freely, it has the possibility to develop optimally, which is often shown by an increase in muscle mass. Due to the above and after the habituation period, both horse and rider, show in all aspect of horse riding more relaxation and more fluid movement.
