This is a very nice County Stabilizer XTR close contact saddle, with skid row panels and wool flocking.
County Saddlery says ……
“The average rider weighs 600 lbs! . . .on the landing side of a 4′ jump. Most of that 600 lbs ends up on the stirrup bars. On conventional spring trees, one end of the stirrup bar is attached to the gullet plate and the other just to the wooden legs of the tree. Force at this point can cause tree twisting and instability which can injure your horse’s back. To reduce harmful twisting, the Stabilizer design uses an extended gullet plate, stabilizing the joint between the pommel and the legs of the tree and allowing for both ends of the stirrup bar to be attached to solid steel.
Stabilizer trees have a patent pending and are guaranteed for life even against accidental damage.
Stabilizer – The Best for Backs Problems with Lead Changes, Stiffness or Sore Backs?
Twisting Trees May be the Problem!
Many veterinarians and physical therapists are now discovering that twisting or over flexing trees may be one of the leading causes of unseen and unexplained soreness or injury to horses’ backs and performance-related problems. The Stabilizer is uniquely designed to eliminate harmful twisting.
University tests found the Stabilizer to have superior structural stability and of the world’s leading jumping saddles, it is the only saddle tested which reinforces the pommel joint and leg of the tree and provides for both ends of the stirrup bar to be attached to solid steel.
