FeaturesThe PDS Carl Hester Collection features the unbreakable carbon fibre tree, X-Change System and the AMS Panel. The tree interacts with the movement of horse and rider enabling the horse to move freely and giving the rider comfort. The optimum level for the saddle is maintained using the X-Change System and fine tuning by wool placement inside the AMS panels.
Carbon fibre tree
All PDS saddle trees are made of Carbon fibre making them very light and incredibly strong. The tree will improve your horse’s comfort and performance through it’s anatomical design giving incredible contact between horse and rider. Carbon fibre offers strength and flexibility allowing the tree widths to be adjusted.
Most horse owners are faced with the problem that their horse changes shape from season to season or even throughout a season. This can often be inconvenient and expensive to resolve. Looking after your horses back at any time is crucial to its performance and inevitable compromises are forced upon the horse owner by other brands that do not allow adjustment. This may result in permanent damage both physically and mentally to your horse. All PDS saddles can be adjusted easily, often on site, to ensure that your saddle always fits perfectly.
AMS panels distribute load and reduce pressure on a horse’s back. Each saddle within the PDS Carl Hester Collection is fitted with either Regular or Alto AMS panels specifically designed for a certain horse type. Regular panels are suited to most dressage horses. Alto panels are built to fit horses with a prominent height difference from wither to back. The saddle has a slightly deeper AMS panel at the front, to offer extra support and clearance over the wither and spine. It also has a slightly deeper rear gusset to ensure that after allowing for the height at the front of the horse, the saddle is still able to sit level.
