Extra Contact

In our relentless pursuit of excellence, we’ve conceived the Extra Contact saddle to push the boundaries of equestrian performance. With a flat seat that fosters enhanced rider-horse connection, this model also offers remarkable flexibility and balance in the rider’s position, delivering an unparalleled riding experience.

Precision-crafted around innovation, the tree of the Extra Contact saddle represents a new era in saddle
design. Its shape allows for more clearance along the horse’s spine, promoting greater freedom of movement in the horse’s back. The new tree of the Extra Contact saddle has been meticulously designed to assist show jumpers in finding their balance with ease. Compared to a traditional wooden tree, its shape enables the rider to ideally position their center of gravity at any given time, resulting in a smoother ride.

Constructed from injected copolymer, it combines two polymers with distinct properties – one for flexibility and the other for maintaining the tree’s shape. This liberates the shoulder blade and minimizes pressure on the rider’s knees over the horse’s withers. Consequently, it ensures superior weight distribution on the horse’s back, allowing them to fully utilize their locomotion and express themselves in their movements.

With the horse’s well-being in mind, the panel’s shape has also been reworked in harmony with the saddle’s new tree.
Now designed for ergonomics, it permits the horse’s shoulders to move with greater freedom. These redesigned panels offer enhanced comfort for the horse, increased scapula freedom, while effectively reducing pressure points.
The Extra Contact saddle is also significantly lighter than traditional saddles. When compared to an Antares saddle (Connexion) with identical specifications, the Extra Contact is 15% lighter (5.26 kg vs. 6.06 kg).
