We held the first horse endurance race in Czechoslovakia and Central Europe in 1985. Based on our own racing experience, we have decided to design and manufacture saddles, specifically designed for this demanding sport. You will appreciate their great features in tourism, recreational or long-distance rides. As already an active riders, we have established the breed of Shagya Arabs in Křepenice, Sedlčany in 1986. First Shagya mare El Kari encouraged our further development in breeding. It was our dream come true. We’ve successfully established quality breeding station, top equestrian team and bespoke saddlery under one roof.

Our manufacture uses three basic types of saddle trees. Seat contact surfaces are at a distance of at least four fingers avoiding the pressure on the sensitive spinal canal. For unequalled strenght and low weight, all of the trees are made from advanced Kevlar and aramide composites. Rear part of the tree is anatomically arched upwards in order to distribute rider´s weight and allow a slight bending of the horseback. The angle and width of the front pommel is precisely adjusted, allowing free movement of the horseback and shoulder blade. The saddle must be always positioned behind the shoulders, allowing free movement and rotation. Each tree takes into account several riding styles and therefore we offer three basic positions of stirrup straps clinches.

Every new model is tested at races of all performance levels. Our saddles and accessories have successfully passed the prestigious endurance races, such as the World and European Championships as well as the World Equestrian Games. Our saddles have been developed in cooperation with leading vets and physiotherapists. Unlike most classic of English saddles, which are positioned more to the front of the horse, our saddles distribute the rider's weight between the twelfth and thirteenth thoracic vertebra, an ideal configuration for even distribution of the strain among forelegs and hindlegs allowing the free movement without premature fatigue during long lasting or otherwise demanding ride.

The exquisite design of the saddle provides comfort for the rider and the horse during long lasting rides. Size of the horse, its skeleton, characteristic features and many other details are taken into account during our manufacturing process. The aim is to ensure that the rider with the saddle does not interfere with horse´s movement and allowing the rider comfortable and confident position with maximum control of the horse just by sitting and delicate steering by legs. Anatomically adapted tree skids copy up to 90 percent of the horseback and are adjusted with shock absorbing pads from latex and memory foam. Anomalies are corrected by filling the bearing surfaces with the layer of first-rate sheep wool.
