International Saddle - 18" W

+

The Grand Prix International saddle has been designed, tried and tested by some of Irelands most successful riders. It was created by integrating the newest technology and innovations to provide the ultimate saddle for comfort, balance and performance for the horse and rider. Designed with our most premium French calf skin leather integrated into the seat, skirts and cushioned pads over the knee and thigh blocks. This gives the rider more grip that intensifies with use and that ridden in feeling from day one.

Berney Bros. were able to provide the most comfort to the horse and rider by using a combination of orthopaedic memory foam, a spring tree, and wool flocked panels. The orthopaedic memory foam is embedded into the seat of the saddle and retains its spring and shock absorbency over time providing a really comfortable seat for the rider and aiding the horse by absorbing the impact of the rider’s movement.

As with all of Berney’s saddles, this saddle is made with a laminated beech wood spring tree that is strength tested to the British Safety Standard. By using a spring tree we were able to achieve added shock absorbency while keeping the saddle lightweight. We designed the tree with a higher gullet plate and cut back head to accommodate the more blood horses with more prominent withers. The third component we use to achieve the ultimate comfort and welfare for the horse is our fully leather lined panels flocked with pure new wool.

The biggest advantage that this material provides against others is that it spreads the weight of impact over a bigger surface area allowing the horse full use of themselves. Pure new wool also retains its spring and shock absorbency over time and moulds to the shape of the horses back compensating for horses changing shape throughout the season. The forward cut flaps with soft knee pads affords the rider a comfortable and secure seat. The long moulded knee roll in the front cups your knee for extra support and a stuffed roll to the back of the riders leg runs the full depth of the panel.

This knee roll system gives the rider a lot of support and allows you the flexibility of riding with a longer stirrup length for flat work and shorter stirrup lengths for jumping. The panels are flocked with ‘pure wool’. The biggest advantage that this material provides against others is that it spreads the weight of impact over a bigger surface area allowing the horse full use of themselves.
