Classic Havana Brown Total Contact Saddle
The Total Contact Saddle is a lightweight, versatile treeless saddle that fits any horse, of any size. Placing the horse and rider in total contact with each other, it creates a unified riding experience and bond. The perfect saddle for horses who are hard to fit a conventional saddle to, and for riders who seek greater connection with their horse.
The Total Contact Saddle was designed to give the closest possible contact with the horse whilst keeping the security of stirrups. The minimalist design strips away unnecessary padding, tree, cantle and pommel to deliver direct communication between horse and rider.
Riders will enjoy a natural riding position, and being able to truly feel their horse – the horse will enjoy unrestricted movement and a saddle that hugs their unique conformation, regardless of their size or shape. The Total Contact Saddle can be used for anything and everything from pleasure hacking to endurance rides, jumping and dressage to cross country. It’s a very gentle saddle that’s also brilliant when first bringing your horse into riding.
The Total Contact Saddle is made with quality English leather by an English Master Saddler, using English stainless steel new design "swing bars" for the stirrup attachments and metalwork for the D-rings.
