For those who love the classic Western Saddle but need something shorter and lighter, DP Saddlery has built a saddle that is essentially a Western Saddle built on an English tree. The short and light saddle is built on DP’s Ultra-Flex tree, made out of high-quality Carbon Fiber. The advantage of their Ultra- Flex tree is, that although they are slightly flexible, they will not collapse underneath a riders' weight while allowing the horse to move out freely. DP Saddlery takes great pride in bringing you one of the best and most reliable flexible trees available on today's market.
The supportive flocked panels have a cellular rubber-Inlay, this soft core inlay helps to prevent the flocking from balling up, increasing the longevity of the wool. After the Inlay is attached inside of the panels, the panels are flocked with 3” of high-quality synthetic wool. The traditional recommendation is to have your flocking checked and re flocked if needed, by a professional saddle fitter every 2 years more or less based on individual saddle use.
The build of the Quantum western dressage seat encourages an aligned rider position, with a narrow twist and a softly padded, balanced dressage seat. The free swinging fenders are attached with English stirrup leather bars, and the length adjusted with a simple English stirrup leather buckle.
The Quantum Western Short & Light models are fully adjustable with an Allen Wrench system. The saddles have the ability to change with your horse through the seasons and over the years to come. A simple turn of the key will adjust the saddle within a fraction of an inch, from narrow to extra wide. The Allen Wrench Tool is included with every saddle purchase. This incredible design has been a part of DP for over 30 years.
