The Barcoo Halfbreed is now available on the Flex Fit Tree!
This exciting new saddle addresses the problem of saddle fit. It has long been accepted that the best way to fit a saddle to a horse is with the horse standing evenly on all four legs. This has been the ideal situation, provided a horse never changed from that position.
As a horse moves through its various gaits, it continually changes shape. Not only does it alter shape along the length of the back, but shoulder movement means that a leg forward position causes a continuing alteration of shoulder muscle mass and underlying skeletal structure.
The new totally flexible trees incorporated in the Flex Fit Halfbreed allow for the saddle to change shape along with the horse. It also means that one saddle can fit various shape horses. The rider weight, along with the girth system ensure a snug fit in all cases.
The Flex Fit is otherwise a traditional Halfbreed saddle with Revolving Stirrup Bar (see Revolving Stirrup Bar). This is important as all sporting bodies now require this feature (SeeImportant Information to Consider Before Buying a Saddle)
