A super comfortable saddle with a nod to the Wild West, with a highly respected method for girth connection.
THIS LISTING IS FOR THE SADDLE ONLY
The girth connection of the EDIX® Tiamo Western saddle is derived from the technique developed by George B. McClellan in 1855. The triangular connection allows the girth force to interact across a larger area of the saddle, as the connections are fastened at the front and the back of the saddle, as opposed to in the middle. Furthermore, the position of the girth itself can be adjusted forward or backward. As such, only the weight resulting from the interaction of the rider will be at the centre point.
This treeless western saddle meets all the requirements a leisure rider could wish for as we wish for comfortable horse riding. 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.
The pommel is interchangeable and therefore adaptable for a high or low withers. The pommel is made of fiberglass and the cantle is made of the soft material high density foam. They each link the left and right part of the saddle and together they offer stability to the saddle and seating comfort for the rider. Due to the saddle’s construction freedom of movement for the spine is created.
The Tiamo can be combined with the EDIX® saddlebags and breastplate, for which various rings have been fitted. The FRA® supergirth is optional and its 100% elasticity ensures a rock-solid fixation.
EDIX® saddles advises you to buy the proposed treeless saddles complete with substructure (special treeless pad) to achieve optimal pressure distribution.
Inlays are subject to wear and tear depending on the intensity of use and need to be checked from time to time for the residual force. These sets of inlays are separately available.
The EDIX® Tiamo Western saddle is available in the colours brown and black and in sizes small, medium and large.
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.
