The Equipe EK-GO Special Saddle is built on Equipe’s revolutionary carbon tree to offer the rider unrivalled contact with the horse and is used by eventing stars Laura Collett and Emily King.

Designed to offer a unique fit for both horse and rider, it is a welcome addition to the Equipe carbon saddle range.

The saddle features a more shapely tree suiting higher withered, shorter backed horses with a big shoulder.

Carbon is a material well-known for the advantages it affords in constructive precision, lightness and sturdiness. These are mechanical performances that are further enhanced by diversification in the material composition of the saddle tree in its two front and rear sections to comply with the two respective requisites of rigidness and flexibility, and by the innovative shock-absorbing system that improves comfort and performance, to the benefit of that very special “tuning” between horse and rider.

Available in the colours Black, Brown, New Market and Red Brown and priced at around £4,370.
