Ghost Saddles Canada

About Ghost Saddles

For thousands of years, people rode bareback or used lambskin or wool blankets. Treed saddles weren't common until the middle ages, when horses went to battle with knights held tight in saddles with high fronts and rears. Early nomads rode for days on their treeless saddles, 2 cushions on both sides of the spine, held together with leather straps and covered by decorative saddle covers.

The Ghost Saddle is a modern version of these ancient saddles. It has been completely redesigned by a team of leading Treeless Saddle experts. It is an extremely versatile saddle which fits a variety of horses. The Ghost saddle is very stable even on the most difficult to fit horses. Sympanova panels create airflow and breath-ability, offering very good spinal clearance and weight distribution. Panels have special foam inserts, which can be modified with additional shims, and fitted for the individual horse.

Why Choose Ghost Saddles?

The saddle has a flexible carbon pommel which will fit even the widest of horses and the special V girthing system is also adjustable in its position on the horse. This allows for a wide range horse shapes to keep the girth in the most stable position. The overall structure of the saddle is self adjusting to each horse and therefore suits many different shapes/sizes/breed of horse, which is great if you have more than one horse to ride!

The saddle can be used with either traditional English style leathers or fenders that slip onto a 2.5cm leather. Two positions are available - the center 2 rings in the

The side plates are layers of carbon fiber and a kevlar-like material for incredible strength yet flexibility.
