The flat seat and thin panels make the Pegasus Close Contact Dressage saddle ideal for classical riders. Cynron make this saddle available in all tree sizes, including a special tree for the working stallion. This particular saddle has an 18ins seat with what we regard to be a medium wide fitting which we measured to be 5.25ins. The saddle flap measures 16ins drop from the stirrup bar. The saddle has the Cynron Spring-Flex Tree with Flexible Points. Low front pommel suspension for an expanded seat center providing additional room to accommodate the correct placement and movement of the seat bones.
Shoulder Free Panels fit in & around the horse’s scapula to maximize withers clearance and retain a forward center of balance. Flexible polymer trees, like those used at Cynron Saddlery, allow horses to feel and comprehend subtle cues from their riders, says Cindy McCully, president of Cynron Saddlery. These flexible trees can move laterally and front-to-back and even follow the conformation of the horse’s back during bending, Friedson says.
The Cynron FlexTree – The length, width, & points of this tree flex and conform around the horse’s shoulders and back with girthing and the rider’s weight. The tree follows the horses shape at rest and during each movement, providing freedom for the shoulder and maximum comfort! Incredible close contact feeling!
