The Nightwind dressage saddle is designed especially for draft horses, draft crosses and baroque breeds. However, our testers successfully used it on a broad backed Quarter Horse. Made of English tanned leathers on a "hoop" tree, this saddle has soft flock stuffed panels with an extra wide channel for a broad spine. Flaps and skirts are flexible memmel tanned cowhide. Glove tanned cowhide seat is soft and open. Adjustable stirrup bars allow the rider to position her/his leg correctly for proper balance. Swinging rear billet allows versatility in girth placement.
