Close Contact

Close Contact

Riders who participate in hunt seat equitation or show jumping often prefer this saddle, especially if they enjoy a more direct sensation of the horses’ flanks beneath them.
The saddle provides this enhanced contact primarily by relying on a minimalistic approach.

Typical Qualities Of Close Conatct Saddles:

  • Padding is minimal throughout the saddle. If there are any knee rolls, they are the very thin “pencil” rolls.
  • Stirrup bars are usually farther forward than on an all-purpose saddle, as the rider uses shorter stirrups and a more forward posture while getting in and out of the seat.
  • The saddle flaps angle forward to accommodate the jumping posA low pommel and cantle reduce uncomfortable jarring during the quick positional adjustments used when jumping.
  • A flat seat makes it faster and easier for the rider to perform frequent shifts to get in and out of the seat.
  • ition.
  • Girth billets are generally of standard length.
