The EDIX Django is a fully treeless Western saddle made by hand of original Argentina cowhide leather with beautiful border tooling and refined classical appearance. Offering comfort for the rider as well as for the horse for long trail rides as well as for many other disciplines of Western riding. The twist (waist) of the seat offers a narrow, comfortable deep and secure seat. The seat is foam padded and finished with a brushed cow leather (suede). The gullet of the saddle can be adjusted by changing the exchangeable pommel. In the same style as the saddle there are Django fenders and leather covered stirrups included.

 

The Saddle itself consists of 2 parts: the upper part - the seating area for the rider and the lower part - the base of the saddle which is built up with separate pressure distributing layers. EDIX MPDS: multiple pressure distribution system. These soft, flexible layers adapt to the anatomy of the horse, as well as to the riders. An Edix treeless saddle optimally reacts to the movements of the horse. The complete absence of rigid load bearing parts allows the horse to move freely, especially the muscles of the horses' back and shoulders and at the same time refine the communication between you and your horse.

 

The Django is fitted with Edix circle-girthing system, which allows the girth tension to interact across the length of the saddle as the connections are fastened at the front and the rear of the saddle, as opposed to the middle or front of traditional Western saddles. Furthermore, the position of the girth itself can be adjusted forward or backward to suit your horse. As such, only the weight resulting from the interaction of the rider will be at the centre point of the saddle.

 

Edix recommend purchasing an Edix Treeless saddle pad to complete the package: the special treeless saddle pads are through their construction an addition on the pressure distributing materials of treeless saddles. The Edix pads are anatomically shaped and equipped with the correct inlays which ensure freedom of movement for the spine. If required, additional pressure and position distributing materials can be added. The position-correcting material can be added in the upper insert compartments so that you can temporarily improve a saddle position. Edix has various models of pads that fit under the Django Western Saddle. There is a choice between saddle pads with wool base (real Merino Sheepskin) or finished with a synthetic wool. All Edix pads are specially designed for the Edix treeless saddle, however they also fit under many other treeless saddle brands.

 

Saddle weighs 9-10 kgs approx.
