In line with French tradition, our tree is characterised by a very flat seat, enabling the rider to achieve closer contact with the horse. Material quality is the same as for Prestige Italia saddles: a special blend of synthetic fibres which offers numerous advantages compared to a traditional wooden tree:
- tree shape remains stable over time, because it is not deformed by humidity.
- it weighs at least 1 kg less and does not require metal reinforcements;
- The tree is also adjustable, indeed the opening can be widened or narrowed according to the horse's morphology, especially during growth or muscle development.
These characteristics make us the only Company to provide Customers with a lifetime warranty for trees, except for in case of accident.
There are two types of French tradition panels: flocked or latex.
Renaissance flocked panels are hand-stuffed by our artisans. They combine a synthetic Dacron fibre flocking with an elastic honeycomb membrane cover and a layer of soft rubber. This product offers freedom of movement for the horse, preventing the rider from excessively weighing down on the whithers when airborne during jumping. These panels are versatile because they can be re-flocked when required.
The Renaissance saddles are available both in the integrated Latex panels and non integrated Latex panels versions.
The integrated Latex panels can be made as standard (PM), thinner in the back (PF), +1 cm in back (PT) or +2 cm in back (PT2 – except for Renaissance M).
The non integrated Latex panels can also be made in the version +1 cm throughout the surface (PTE).
The stuffed panels on the Renaissance saddles can be made in the non integrated version only, and they are available in the following options: standard (W PM), +1 cm in back (W PT1), +2 cm in back (W PT2) or +1 cm throughout the surface (W PTE).
Upon request, the stuffed panels can also be made as shaved in the front (SF) or with half flocking in the back.
Flaps are an essential part of the saddle. We design them with the utmost attention to rider anatomy and according to discipline. Flaps are available in longer or shorter projections, fitted according to rider anatomy.
