The Ghost Barocco Saddle - a baroque/classical dressage saddle - one of our favourites!
The Ghost Saddle has been completely redesigned by a team of leading Treeless Saddle experts. It is a versatile saddle that fits and adapts to an extraordinary variety of horses.
The Ghost Saddle is balanced and secure, even on the most difficult to fit horses. Its Sympanova panels not only create airflow and breathability, they also provide excellent spinal clearance and weight distribution.
These panels have special foam inserts, and are adapted to take additional shims. The Sympanova panels are movable, to create the best fit for each horse.
The Ghost Saddle has a carbon pommel that fits even the widest horses. Its distinctive V girthing system is adaptable, affording maximum comfort and stability.
The overall structure of the saddle is self-adjusting, making it suitable for many different shapes/sizes/breed of horse. Perfect if you have more than one horse to ride!
The Ghost seat is ergonomic, comfortable and feels much narrower than many hip-wrenching treeless saddles on the market.
There are two stirrup attachments; one for a more forward GP position, the other for a longer-leg, classical position. The addition of thigh-blocks increases the rider’s security.
♥ The Ghost has more of a “twist” to the seat than other treeless saddles which means you feel less wide at the hips.
♥ It has a very close contact feel.
♥ It allows you to sit in the correct position without force.
♥ There is more than enough protection for the horse.
♥ The panels can be adjusted and also filled with different or extra material. (adjustable panel only)
♥ The thigh rolls offer support and rider security without getting in the way.
♥ The girth straps are adaptable in position and make the saddle very stable.
♥ It is light weight (4 – 4.5 kilo’s)
♥ There are no hard parts, the saddle is very flexible and adapts to the shape of the horse.
♥ Two positions for stirrups.
♥ No girth or stirrup-strap going over the spine like in many other popular treeless saddles!
♥ Manufactured in Italy from environmentally friendly leather, no child labour involved.
♥ The seats are interchangeable to any style you like as long as it is the same size.
♥ Very well priced for quality, workmanship and design.
Ghost saddles are the perfect choice for pleasure riders and those participating in longer trail rides, as well as riders focussing on schooling and training. We recommend a rider weight limit of 80kg. Nevertheless, please contact us to discuss if you are outside these limitations as good balance and supplementary padding may compensate for extra kilos. We do have several competitive Endurance Riders enjoying remarkable success with the Ghost saddle. However, as with any saddle for this discipline, we always recommend a suitable endurance numnah and regular checking, especially for distances over 40km.
Leather is a natural product and every batch may differ slightly in texture and colour, particularly brown. Please note; colours may look different on the computer screen from reality. Oiled leather is sensitive to scratches: clean then apply a drop of oil or leather-balm to affected areas.
