This saddle offers improved close contact thanks to greater proximity to the horse. At the same time there is greater comfort because the seat is even softer. The result obtained is an appreciable reduction in panel thickness, while ensuring stability and comfort for the horses back. No change has been made to any of the other technical features.
Please note that the price given is a guide only and is for the double flap saddle in calfskin.
X – Technology has been able to offer riders the required closeness while fully ensuring due consideration for horses and their wellbeing. With the new version of D1-X closeness to the horse has been obtained not by resorting to an extreme twist, nor by lengthening the tree supports or by shifting the centre gravity rearwards on the seat – all of which can harm the horse – but through clever adjustments to the frame designed based on a close study of human anatomy.
A saddle perfectly suited to short horses that have highly developed shoulders and muscles. The panels, with their new "open" design to the front, give freedom to the withers and shoulders of the horse. Another unique feature of the saddle is its elastic front girth straps. The seat is soft and deep. Rear "V-type" girth straps ensure greater stability on the horse's back.
The D1D Zero saddle offers a narrower twist for the rider.
This has been possible by working on the following three points:
- the saddle tree is now thinner in the middle
- the upper part of the flaps is now in calfskin instead of leather , so that we could obtain less
thickness in this area
- the under flaps in the same area of the calfskin inserts of the flaps, have a special thermo-sensitive rubber so that it is possible to reach an even lower thickness.
Three withers sizes are available to fit all horses: S = 33 ; M = 34 ; L = 35.
This saddle comes as standard with large blocks.
The D1 D version is completely lined in our double oiled calfskin leather.
The D1 LUX is made entirely in our new premium leather. The LUX leather is very distinctive as it has the softness of calfskin but the resistance of leather.
The mono flap version of the saddle (second photo), the X-D1D K, is for riders who require even more contact with the horse, by maintaining the same action on the horse shoulders as in D1D version. It also features large front blacks and a deep seat and is available in calfskin and LUX leather (£3,894)
The X-Technology saddles can be made with a standard tree and with standard flocked panels on request (the price remains the same).
