Champion Peninsula Poley is built on a carved timber tree with solid steel gullet and steel side rails. The tree carries a 5 year guarantee. It features our spring loaded seat suspension system. The standard model pictured is lined with merino wool. The advantage of this over the old hair lined saddle is that it is a much closer contact saddle and the rider weight is distributed over a larger area. Less rider pounds per square inch means less chance of soring up a valuable horse. This is a close contact competition ready saddle. The sheepskin lining can be washed, so with proper care the saddle wont need counter lining. Its low maintenance.
