Studies have shown that when a horse's foreleg reaches forward and touches the ground, cartilage in the shoulder blade area protrudes outward due to muscle movement below it. With this knowledge, and using the already excellent PS tree as a starting point, Passier developed an anatomically curved gullet plate that prevents contact between the horse's shoulder blade cartilage and saddle tree during movement. And the free-rotation-tree (frt-system®) was born.
Freedom Panels create more space on either side of the withers by lowering the channel seam by 3/4" to virtually eliminate panel contact in this area. The Freedom Panel design includes a wide gullet and generous contact surface in the back third of the panel.
