This saddle looks similar to some of the popular close contact jump saddles, on the market, but has the advantage of the 'horse friendly' BALANCE features.
The seat is the same as on the Zenith Dressage, GPD and GPJ styles, but this jump version has a smaller/lower cantle, to make the seat flatter, which many riders prefer for jumping. The flap shape and size is smaller than on the GPJ but is not more forward cut. For more forward cut jump saddles you need to look at the Xtreme Jump saddles.
This saddle is suitable for show-jumping (stadium), hunter/jumper, cross-country riding etc.
Built on the very popular BALANCE/FB7 tree.
Low squared' cantle
A range of BALANCE tree Widths: 7X, 8X and 9X. These widths relate to the needs of healthy, well developed and correctly trained horses.
Panels flocked with long-fibre, white wool.
Short girth straps (billets).
Regular stirrup bars.
4 seat lengths A, B, C, D.
Adjustable/removable knee blocks.
Flap length = 16" (40.5 cm). This is approximate and is measured from the top of the stirrup bar to the bottom of the flap at its longest point. The saddle can be ordered with a different flap length, but it is very unusual for this to be necessary.
Colour Options and Customization
The standard leather and colour for the Zenith Jump Saddle is Chestnut, with a pigskin print for the flaps and skirts. However, other colours and trim options are available.
Being able to move in a powerful, balanced and engaged way, without restriction or discomfort, is every horse’s birth-right and essential in order for him to be able to carry the unnatural weight of a rider, without doing harm to himself.
