Sadly, some years ago, Brenda Imus passed away, but her family took up where she left off, and their company is now the Phoenix Rising Saddle Co.  This is an original Brenda Imus 4-Beat gaited endurance saddle.  Brenda Imus was regarded as one of the foremost gaited horse tack specialists in the USA as she fully understood the special gaited-horse biomechanics and conformation.

She analyzed gaited saddle problems-and worked out all the appropriate solutions. The result of this work is Imus 4-Beat® Gaited saddle. These saddles have been painstakingly designed the action, or motion, of gaited horses (though it works great for all horse types!). Arguably, with all its unique features, it is the best gaited saddle on the market.

Unsurpassed in comfort for both horse and rider, this saddle may look like other saddles on the outside – but that’s where similarities end.

The Imus 4-Beat® Gaited saddle encourages the horse’s natural 4-beat gait.

All saddles come standard with matching Supracor padded 4-Beat® Stirrups, Leather Tie Strings, and extra-long latigos to accommodate the 3-Point Rigging.

Specially Designed Tree designed for unique forward placement, placing rider over horse’s true center of gravity. Designed for complete freedom of movement and to accommodate the gaited horse’s back

Flexible Tree with leather suspended ground seat to prevent bars from collapsing under rider’s weight. Provides incredibly close feeling to the horse.

Carefully calculated degree of flexibility in the bars offers gaited horses unprecedented comfort and freedom of motion, while still correctly distributing the rider’s weight.

  • Forward set, free-swinging stirrups to avoid pressure on rider’s ankles, knees, hips and pelvis
  • Places rider in “bareback” position, allowing rider to truly be in balance with their horse without constricts of saddle
  • Supracor © therapeutic padding placed under the bars of the tree to eliminate pressure soreness and ensure a custom fit
  • Supracor © therapeutic padding placed in the seat and the matching 4-Beat® stirrups for unparalleled rider comfort

Each Imus 4-Beat® Saddles Comes Standard With:

  • Matching 4-Beat® Stirrups with Supracor © padding in the tread
  • Dee and O rings with 6 sets leather tie strings for attaching gear
  • Crupper Ring
  • 2 extra long latigo leathers to accommodate 3-Point Rigging
