An EDIX® treeless saddle offers your horse optimum protection for the load exerted by riding, due to the special construction of various soft flexible pressure distributing materials: EDIX® MPDS, multiple pressure distribution system (see drawing). At the same time, these soft, flexible layers perfectly adapt to the anatomy of the horse, as well as the rider’s posture. An EDIX® treeless saddle optimally reacts to the movements of the horse. Partly due to this, the dressage rider learns to perfectly adapt to the horse’s movements and, as such, develops an independent position. As a result, the movements of the horse and rider become one, and from there, excellent communication is created. Because the horse is moving much more freely, it has the possibility to develop optimally, which is often shown by an increase in muscle mass. Due to the above and after the habituation period, both horse and rider, show in all aspect of horseriding more relaxation.
The high cantle and kneerolls can be adjusted by Velcro making the position perfectly adaptable to the wishes of the dressage rider. Low and/or short knee-rolls, just as a low cantle, are optional. The pommel is interchangeable and, as such, adaptable to high or low withers. The pommel is made of fiberglass and the cantle is made of the soft material high density foam. Both link the left and right part of the saddle and together they offer stability to the saddle and comfort for the rider.
The complete EDIX® Libre saddle comes standard with a contoured saddle pad, including 3 mesh inserts. Additionally, there is the option to choose a felt or a foam quilted saddle pad with an underside that is finished with a synthetic wool or an Australian Merino® sheepskin. Each of these pads offers a free spinal clearance and are provided with pockets that can be closed with velcro and to which several types of inlays can be inserted. In addition, the Libre felt saddle pad has 3 separate inlay pockets on the top left and the top right side, to which a felt layer has already been inserted. If required, additional pressure and position distributing material can be added. Your saddle dealer will be happy to advise you.
