Santos Western Treeless Saddle
The EDIX® Santos looks like a traditional treed saddle but with the added bonus of being treeless to offer more freedom to the horse through the saddle's flexible contouring. Santos saddles are made from strong and hardwearing quality Buffalo leather, with a beautiful suede seat in a contrasting colour.
Weighing in at approx 6.9kg, it offers traditional looks and a sturdy fixed wooden pommel, which is not interchangeable in this model. A pommel size M is installed as standard but other widths can be chosen when ordering.
Despite the typical Western cut-out “square skirt”, the EDIX® Santos does have a long weight-bearing surface front to back when compared to a traditional western saddle, which means this saddle is suitable for most horses. The leather and structure of this Western saddle ensure that it is also very suitable for slightly heavier riders.
There are no weight limits for riders with our saddles but we do recommend that heavier riders upgrade to the Merino shimmable saddle pad.
Santos Saddles are available in brown, black or natural colours in the following sizes
Small - 15" Seat
Medium - 17" Seat
Large 19" Seat
Anecdotal evidence has shown that a Medium seat is closer to a traditional 16" seat size.
Saddle Package Includes Saddle, Fenders, Stirrups and Saddle Pad and Pack Of Shims
Priced at $2585 with Standard Felt Saddle Pad with felt shims or $2685 with upgraded Merino Sheepskin Saddle Pad with felt shims......plus shipping cost within New Zealand
