Saddle tree 'Exclusive' with integrated gullet plate
This advancement in the field of saddle trees increases safety as well as riding comfort particularly in the seat region.
Gullet plate and stirrup bar form a unification made of high-quality steel which is inset in the upper area of the saddle tree. This system exclusively patented by Kieffer, leads the stirrup bar closer to the saddle tree – the result is a narrower pommel and more seating comfort in the front part of the saddle.
With its integrated gullet plate, the saddle tree model "Exclusive" greatly facilitates adjustment of the saddle tree to the horseback – for example when purchasing a new saddle or as required due to muscular or nutritional changes of the animal. In order to fit the saddle tree, the saddle is simply mounted onto the kieffer alteration bench and adjusted by cold processing to make it either narrower or wider.
Another advantage of this construction is that an escape of the stirrup bar is in actual fact impossible.
The gullet plate is located above and not below the saddle tree as is usual, consequently sharp corners can herewith be avoided. In the case of a saddle tree with a narrow set fitting for a horse with a slim body shape, the gullet plate does not deform in a V-shape but remains in a rounded shape to prevent jamming the withers.
Of particular importance is the fact, that because of the seamless connection of gullet plate and stirrup bar the pressure caused by mounting the horse is distributed evenly over the whole saddle tree – this prevents the saddle tree from deforming. A deforming of the saddle tree, occurs in many saddles over a long time period and may result in a tilting of the rider´s seat which of course would have negative consequences for the rider and the horse.
The Medico seat, a V-cut in the saddle tree, always swings with the movement, thus relieving the rider’s spinal column and seat muscles. In particular, the sensitive area around the ischium and the pubic bone are protected by the increased flexibility of the saddle tree. To achieve an even better seat experience for the rider, the stirrup bar is mounted closer to the saddle tree. The pommel thus becomes narrower for a more comfortable seat. The gullet plate is recessed into the saddle tree and consequently does not constrain the rider in any way.
With its integrated gullet plate, the saddle tree model 'Exclusive' supports an easy fit for a new saddle purchase and aids adjustment of the saddle tree which may be necessary due to muscular development of the horse or a change of horse ownership. In order to fit the saddle tree, the saddle is simply mounted onto the Kieffer alteration bench and adjusted by cold processing to make it either narrower or wider.
