Construction

All Ghost saddles have the same base. This base is completed with panels and a seat. The base and panels determine the fitting to your horse, the seat changes the looks and gives support to the rider. The bases are available in 3 sizes: Standard, Piccolo and Bambini. It is easy to switch seats. Your saddle can change from a dressage model into a saddle for hacking in minutes. There are many different seats to choose from.

One base for many models, simply change out the seat!

Materials 

The seats can be made from numerous types of leather and synthetic material. GHOST is always searching for new material. We will try to show you some of the possibilities. Pictures will always be different from the real product, also because leather is a product of nature.

The base - the core of your  GHOST saddle - is made from layers of strong and flexible material.   

  • Micropell (synthetic leather)

  • Montecchio (fabric from Nylon and Polyurethane)

  • Carbon (reinforcements around the stirrup- and rigging)

  • Biothane Granite (belting)

  • Steel (1 mm inside the arch) 

  • Stainless steel for rings and studs

Model Descriptions

The Ghost Quilty, Quevis and Florac are all models with a short flap, good for pleasure, trail and for those riders who love to have  little between them and their horse. The Ghost Western (USA) is based upon these models, but has a skirt and a horn for the genuine western look.  The Quilty has vertical thigh blocks, for the rider who likes to have the legs straight. The Quevis has the thigh blocks  slightly angled and in a more forward position for riders who prefer to ride with shorter stirrups. The Florac has no blocks. The Ghost USA can be delivered with thigh blocks in both positions.

The Ghost Roma, Veneto and Barocco are dressage style saddles. Also available with a hidden pommel. The Roma  has vertical thigh blocks, for the rider who likes to have the legs straight. The Veneto has the thigh blocks  slightly angled and in a more forward position for riders who prefer to ride with shorter stirrups. The Barocco can be made with both types of thigh blocks.

Ghost Maremma and Cagliari are normal Ghost saddles, but made with a seat from real untreated sheepskin. You can order them in several styles. The Cagliari has longer flaps (such as the Roma) and the Maremma has the same shape as the Quilty and Quevis. You can order them with blocks, wild cut or with the same contours as one of the other models.

The Ghost Classic saddles have a double flap with Velcro blocks and a hidden pommel, for the “Classic”  look. The Italy is a general purpose model. The Lipica is  for dressage and the Flamenco has a nice Spanish look. They all have the same features as the other Ghost saddles.
