Christ Fur Saddle Information
This fur saddle has removable foam inserts along the spine for added comfort. The top of the pad unzips for easy cleaning. Highly recommended fur saddle by therapeutic riding programs nationwide. Fleece rolls at the side provide additional stability and increase the feeling of sitting securely. The lambskin seat can be unzipped and taken off and a special gullet plate can then be put into the pocket provided. The stirrup bars fixed to the gullet plate allow you to mount the horse using stirrups. SEE SEPARATE LISTING. Removable padding on the left and right of the spinal canal increases the seat comfort and protects the horse's back.
Which is the correct seat size?
The size of the fur saddle should be selected primarily by the size of the rider. Ladies up to clothing size 12 (Australian) will best fit in PO size, but can also take the WB size, if they have large-sized horses, which could make the PO size look tiny on their horses. But this is a purely aesthetic matter. Ladies 12+ size will find WB size most comfortable. Size WB will also fit smaller horses and ponies. Men should choose size WB size if their sizes are 40/42 or above. There is also now a kids size Fur Saddle (SH).
The pressure is mainly located where you sit and is caused by the bones of your pelvis. Just like riding without a saddle, except that the CHRIST fur saddles protect your horses back via lambskin cushion underneath the saddle, the composite upholstery (padding inside) and the seat's lambskin and together distribute the pressure along the horses back.
Since CHRIST fur saddles do not have a fixed saddle tree, they are ideally suited for every horses' back. Yes, every single one of them. This is particularly helpful if you're fitting a swaybacked horse, or extremely short backed horses, or are dealing with symmetry issues. CHRIST fur saddles are a great alternative and often the only way to ride these horses again.
Fur saddles don't have to be fitted, because only soft and very flexible materials are used and nothing hinders or restricts the movements of the horse, therefore, CHRIST fur saddles suit all horses.
