A professional Reining saddle for the competitive rider. Developed in collaboration with Volker Schmitt to give the saddle the best possible ride feel.

Cut-out skirts provide extra good contact. The open "Close Contact" seat is perfectly balanced and gives the rider support while also giving good freedom of movement. 

Professional rider and trainer, Volker Schmitt says the following about the Equiflex saddle bars:

"After thoroughly testing Equiflex on several horses, it can be said that you get a significantly better contact with the horse than you get when you use a traditional fixed saddle boom. When riding on circles and sharp turns, the horse is more free in the shoulder movement as the saddle's bearing surface adapts to the horse's back. Even in slow and increased gallops, this is clearly noticeable. Equiflex gives a very good impression, and I have not noticed any disadvantages ".

All Equiflex saddles are made for hacking and working. As with all Equiflex saddles, the quality of the leather and craftsmanship is absolutely top class. Well-padded seats are standard, and leather or Nubuck seat leather of the best quality is too.

Blevis Quick Change buckles for easy and quick adjustment of the fenders.

The saddle can be adjusted according to your personal taste and ideas. For example, you can choose (sometimes at extra cost): saddle colour; seat colour; lightweight leather; seat style (cheyenne roll or straight up); hard seat; double soft padding in the seat; leather quality; nubuck or leather seat; part or full roughout; tooling; seat size; silver quality; wood, leather-covered, aluminium (plain or engraved) stirrups, and much more.

All our Equiflex saddles are delivered with different trees, according to the horse's measurements, as well as the seat size and length of the fenders according to the rider's measurements. 

The saddle is built on the unique Equiflex tree that adapts (to some extent) to the horse and follows its movement pattern. 

Antique colour finish is available for an extra £360.00.
