Prestige presents the new X-Breath K, the single-flap version of its ultra-light saddle weighing in at just 4.2kg. Two apertures on the seat give this saddle a distinctive appearance: the large oval aperture towards the rear and the second, smaller, oval aperture to the front. The holes have two main functions:
- a ventilation function for better air circulation, so cooling both horse and rider
- a therapeutic function, in that the anatomically rear aperture keeps pressure off the coccyx, while the front aperture absorbs impact through the saddle when the horse lands after jumping – especially in cross country events.
The apertures are covered with a special highly elastic honeycomb material that makes the seat more comfortable. The saddle has further holes and apertures on the flaps to lighten the weight and to improve air circulation. Like the double-flap version, this model has new ultra-light panels coming from the X-Technology and made with a new honeycomb material that has considerable elastic capacity and takes the place of felt and terry cloth. The effect obtained is an appreciable reduction in the thickness of the panels. At the same time stability is retained as, too, the comfort felt by the horse along its back.
Please note that the price given is a guide only and is for the K calfskin model with latex panels.
