Riders of compact horses don't have to settle for a smaller seat size than desired to avoid saddle pressure on their horse's loins. The Passier® Compact Saddle is designed specifically for the comfort of compact horses and their riders. The saddle panels have a shorter contact surface than other panels from the front to the rear of the cantle. The rest of the panel is designed to come off the horse. The PS tree has a new cantle shape and position, allowing a short tree length without compromising the seat area. Combined, the new panel shape and tree length result in a saddle that is 2" shorter in the weight-bearing area on the horse, but maintains the same seat size feel for the rider.
A W-girthing system ensures that the saddle remains firmly in place. The hook-and-loop closure in the front V enables the rider to change the girthing from a point billet position to a rear position. The further back the front billet is placed, the more shoulder freedom for the horse.
Crafted with a Jupa leather seat and knee inserts, this saddle also includes Freedom Panels which further allows freedom of movement through the horse's shoulder area.
The PS Tree is an exclusive design developed by Passier over 50 years ago and has been continuously produced ever since. More than 1200 steps are necessary to create each tree. Made primarily from layers of wood and leather, with strips of bamboo worked in for flexibility, the PS tree represents the pinnacle of Passier quality. Spring band steel reinforcements provide stability to the tree. Wrought chrome alloy gullet plate is sturdy but not rigid, and because of its shorter points, allows more freedom of movement through the horse's shoulders.
