A beautifully designed complete English soft tree jumping saddle made of soft and supple high-quality Turkish calf leather and soft leather panels filled with synthetic wool. The saddle has a wide cushioned channel for free movement of the spine and correct pressure distribution. The EDIX® Alydar features nicely hidden pockets for different shaped knee rolls offering riders their perfect leg support position, while the knee rolls easily can be changed or different positioned by the strong Velcro attachment.
The EDIX® Alydar is called a soft tree saddle because the saddle is more structured than many other treeless saddles, yet the EDIX Alydar jumping saddle is still technically a treeless saddle due to the lack of a solid tree. The EDIX® soft tree saddles are built of different flexible soft shock absorbing layers and synthetic wool filled panels, which fully adapt to the horse’s anatomy and riders’ posture. Due to this construction, the EDIX® Alydar soft tree jumping saddle offers the rider a narrower and more balanced seat and and still features superb flexibility and spinal clearance for movement of the horse. The front gussets have a stabilizing built--in strap and are specially stitched for an extremely stable saddle position.
The EDIX® Alydar saddle is designed as a standalone saddle. The flexible materials allow the saddle to fully adapt to the horse’s anatomy, even over years as your horse's shape changes due to growth, muscle development due the increased freedom of movement and correct training, or age. With the exchangeable gullet plate system and the refillable panels the Alydar saddle is easily adaptable. In addition there is an easy way to correct temporary saddle position by using a special treeless 8-pocket saddle pad and inlays tailored to the combination.
The EDIX® Y-girthing system, with a base of two front girth straps and a third Y-girth strap, achieves greater strength, durability and improves the distribution of pull from the front and back of the saddle to increase comfort and saddle stability.
Distinctive from many other jumping saddles the stirrup bar connection of the EDIX® Alydar is positioned more centrally of the saddle seat. This is to support correct leg position and helps to reduce pressure on the knees. The saddle can be adjusted perfectly to the rider’s own comfort by choosing the preferred knee roll; short, low or high. A discreet Velcro pocket allows to put the knee support in the perfect position.
EDIX® recommends purchasing a treeless saddle as a complete package, including stirrups, stirrup leathers and a matching saddle pad with inlays.
