EQUES PERFORMACE – A saddle designed for high-level performance by Rasmus Møller Jensen
I have designed a saddle that promotes the relaxed seat, which in my opinion is essential to successful balancing of horse and rider. Harmonised balancing of both horse and rider are 2 things that must add up in order to reach the high-level performance.
Performance is the first model built on the B-tree. A saddle tree that I personally developed to combine the best of several worlds, that is the forward pointing position of the gullet which provides freedom of movement for the shoulders of the horse; the wide channel which provides freedom of movement for the muscles surrounding the spinal column of the horse; and finally, the angle of the bars which provides a remarkably close contact to the horse.
The close contact provided by this saddle is ideal in situations where you need to show the horse from its best side e.g., at competitions or breeding shows. The short knee pad acts mostly as a thigh support and thus ensures that there is room for all types of legs. The rider is highly supported in this saddle, so my recommendation is to go one size up if you are usually in-between sizes.
I kept the saddle in a discrete and classic design in order to prevent the saddle from drawing the attention away from the good and harmonious performance.
In summary, Performance is intended for competition But naturally it is also the ideal all-round saddle for the riders that prefer close contact to the horse.
