Why a Dynamic Saddle?
Designed by FEI level international rider, trainer and clinician Peter Grigoriev, after years of study and experimentation in conjunction with the most talented master saddlers.
The Dynamic Tree gives the horse true freedom of movement and transfers part of the energy of the hind end into lateral dynamics of its body. This allows and enhances the lateral flexion, while maintaining the structure of the saddle and all dimensional flexibility.
In other words…the horse is able to bend and the tree bends with him without the saddle losing its structural integrity. It also allows a rider to take a classical seat, encouraging the horse to engage and carry the rider’s weight from the hind end. Under the rider’s weight the tree accepts the shapes of the horse’s body, not only while at rest but while in motion as well. It changes shape in the same way as the horse’s body does while moving, growing and developing. This makes the saddle fitting challenge a far less daunting task.
The Saddle is designed to accommodate the anatomy and biomechanical ability of horses and riders; for both men and women. When properly positioned on the horse’s back, it positively effects the static and dynamic equilibriums and gives maximum freedom to the shoulders.
The Dynamic tree of the saddle fits most horses; high withered as well as wide backed animals and nearly all in between. Because the fit is correct, it gives real freedom of movement and allows non restricted lateral flexion. The flexible properties allow the saddle, under the rider’s weight, to produce lateral aids, directed from the twist area on each side every time horse uses hind legs. In these saddles, most riders find that they are able to truly loosen/relax their pelvic area, which in turn makes sitting to the horse much easier.
The enhanced feel of the horse is incredible and as there are no restrictions from the saddle, the horse’s performance goes up; vet bills come down. Horses are happier, riders are happier. Happiness abounds. Only superior quality leathers and materials are being used in making the saddles. The craftsmanship is of the highest standards and is delivered by an experienced team of professionals with innovative minds. Foam is used in the panels to eliminate the constant saga of re-flocking, re–stuffing and re-fitting.
What to expect: Initially, the rider may feel that the saddle pushes them forward. If however, they sit back and relax the pelvis/open the hip joints and give themselves and their horse some time, after 10-15 minutes, the sensation of leaning forward will disappear and the rider will truly experience feeling the horse’s movement. Let the seat and hips follow the swing with the horse’s back and body. In other words “do nothing…but do nothing very well.” Take the most Dynamic ride of your life today.
