The Flóki saddle has a deep and soft seat, that gives the rider an optimal position, as well as specially designed short and soft knee rolls that give the rider a great support. The seat is waisted and it has good soft thigh rolls. The rider’s center of gravity is in the center of the saddle, and the saddle has monoflaps which provide a close contact between horse and rider.
It is made of high quality leather and with wool saddle panels, that protects both the horse’s and the rider’s back. Wool panels are less flexible and adaptable than latex panels, but can be re-flocked and adapted by a saddle fitter.
The saddle has a large shoulder freedom, which allows the horse to move freely in tölt.
It is made over a flexible saddle tree, that also has particularly good shock absorption and weight distribution characteristics. The gullet iron can be changed and is available in 7 different widths (Model “F”).
The saddle has a short contact surface that fits the back of the Icelandic horse very well.
2 long Y girth straps. Saddle cover included.
