Discussions in saddle design and fit these days are rising to new levels as the treeless vs treed saddles fight for the market share. But just to add some spice to the mix, watch this video for the new Quantum saddle from England, which has just won a major design award.
What you are seeing is the jumping saddle, and I can't wait to see what they do for an endurance and dressage model.
Quantum saddles aren't sold in the USA (yet, that I know of), so I don't think this can be construed as an ad. It is just an amazing animation of a saddle with features that I've not seen before, or described this way. This saddle has been through rigorous testing, including Equinalysis gait scoring that showed that the horses lengthened stride when their saddles were changed to Quantum.
No, I don't know what a Quantum saddle costs, and it is probably one of those saddles which, if you have to ask, you won't be getting one. But the technology and ingenuity are wonderful.
One can only wonder how one of these rides. Kudos for the developer's presentation, ingenuity and effort to back up claims!
