Prestige X Breath Jumping

£2,970.00£3,190.00

For the first time Prestige presents an ultralight saddle, its “X-Breath”.

A feature that is instantly striking is the large aperture in the seat. It takes the form of an oval hole located in the centre of the seat and has a dual function:
– a ventilation function for better air circulation, so cooling both horse and rider
– a therapeutic function, in that the anatomically shaped hole relieves pressure on the coccyx.

The hole is covered by a special ultra-elastic honeycomb material that increases the comfort of the seat. There are also holes and apertures on the saddle flaps and underflaps, too, intended to make for greater lightness and for improved ventilation.

The saddle has new ultralight panels devised applying X-Technology. The conventional stuffed panels are replaced by new panels made of the same synthetic material, used as stuffing, and by a new honeycomb material that is highly elastic and takes over from felt and foamed material. The effect obtained is an appreciable reduction in the thickness of the panels. At the same time stability is retained as, too, the comfort felt by the horse along its back.

The hole is covered by a special ultra-elastic honeycomb material that increases the comfort of the seat. There are also holes and apertures on the saddle flaps and underflaps, too, intended to make for greater lightness and for improved ventilation.

Founded in 1974 with the name of Appaloosa, the business was started through the innovation of the Stocchetti-Rasia family and their passion for horse riding and everything to do with it. Particular importance was laid on the morphological features of the different equine breed and on the needs of riders for comfort and balance.

Over time the business acquired greater technical knowledge as from Germany, England and Switzerland, it assimilated their long lasting traditions in saddle-making. The conclusion was the idea that saddles being the main means of securing contact between horse and rider, are also the best solution for satisfying the needs of both.

An idea – that the saddle must be developed around a tree of new design, characterised by the utmost flexibility, intended to distribute the weight of the rider uniformly over the horse’s back, and able to adapt to different morphological – was transformed into a business. The knowledge gained from testing in partnership with a team of riding professionals and enthusiasts – was harnessed in the highest-quality hides in Europe and backed up by thorough craftsmanship. There were the credentials of the businesses when it made its debut on world markets.

As confirmed by the major horse-riding champions who always opt for the precision and innovative techniques used by Prestige in their saddles and accessories.
