EDIX Tudor Dressage Saddle
A beautifully designed complete English soft tree dressage 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® Tudor features a luxurious and comfortable mono flap ensuring an optimal leg contact. The nicely hidden pockets for different shaped knee rolls offers the riders its own perfect leg support position, while the knee rolls easily can be changed or different positioned by the strong Velcro attachment.
The EDIX® Tudor is called a soft-tree saddle because the saddle is much more structured compared to many other treeless saddles, yet the EDIX Tudor dressage saddle is still technically a treeless saddle due 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® Tudor soft tree dressage saddle offers the rider a narrower and more balanced seat and still features superb flexibility and spinal clearance for movement of the horse.
The front gussets have a stabilising built-in strap and are specially stitched for an extremely stable saddle position. The EDIX® Tudor saddle is designed as a standalone saddle. By the lack of a solid tree the flexible materials allow that the saddle fully adapt to the horse’s anatomy. By growth or muscle development due the increased freedom of movement and correct training, your horse changes shape throughout the season and years of age. With the exchangeable gullet plate system and the refillable panels the Tudor saddle is easily any further 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 dressage saddles the stirrup bar connection of the EDIX® Tudor 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 and the big. A discreet Velcro pocket allows to put the knee support in the perfect position. The EDIX® Tudor is available in brown or black leather and in the sizes 17, 17.5 and 18 inch. Custom varieties of this saddle take up to 8 weeks delivery time.
EDIX® recommends purchasing a treeless saddle as a complete package, including stirrups, stirrup leathers and a matching saddle pad with inlays. In order to ensure constant firm fixation, we recommend a fully or partly elastic girth for a consistently fixed position. A durable elasticity tailored to your horse’s strength, which will save your saddle from undesirable forces that are caused by the varying abdominal circumference of your horse while riding. The elastic of the girth always adjusts itself in length and has the possibility to keep the saddle in place with constant tension. Besides the EDIX anatomical soft leather padded elastic girth we also offer the fully elastic girth of F.R.A. For advice without obligation, we suggest that you contact one of our official dealers.
We will guide and advise you before as well as during the purchase process, the testing period and offer comprehensive aftercare for a prolonged period of time. When you follow the recommended process of fitting, testing, purchasing and aftercare, EDIX® saddles guarantees a perfect fit of your saddle for you and your horse to enjoy for many years.
