Our materials

A supreme combination of technological innovation and craftsmanship. Our models embody a seamless combination of tradition and modernity, which is what makes our products unique.

Our saddles have an innovative core and a hand-crafted soul. The materials that we use to make them, all have the same characteristics: they combine tradition with modern technologies.

Blend of synthetic fibres

A blend of synthetic fibres, for lightweight and resistance.

When in the 70s we decided to abandon wooden trees to realize a composite fibre tree, many thought that our preference for plastic material was ill-advised. However it was a winning strategy: we produced lighter, but very resistant saddles, and what was first perceived as a long shot became one of the secrets of our success.

Best traditional leather

The best traditional leather, for enhanced softness.

There are many types of leather and we source ours in the renowned tannery districts located in the regions of Veneto and Tuscany, which are famous worldwide. They are all trusted companies, which tan leather in accordance with the besttechnologies and traditions. Lux and Super leather for high-end saddles are produced exclusively using natural tanning processes in compliance with the highest standards to reach the typical softness of calfskin. We made the decision to use water-based colours and glues for our leather, where possible. This was a conscious decision that is in line with our social and environmental principles.

ELITE
The Elite product can be of two types: calfskin and printed leather. For both the natural tanning is used, a very long technique for a better fixing of the colors and a good aging of the product during normal use.
LUX
Is a leather used to double flaps and skirts. The material is subjected to natural tanning processes and worked in accordance with the highest standards in the tradition of Prestige production. It can be smooth or printed and it is characterised by the typical softness of calfskin but with the resistance of leather. It is about 5.2 mm thick.
SUPER
Printed leather of French origin and ultra-soft vegetable tanning and resistant for excellent grip. It is about 4.5 mm thick.
CALFSKIN
Leather used to double skirts and flaps obtained from vegetable tanning with a double oiling process for maximum grip, softness and comfort. It is about 4.3 mm thick.

Two types of panel

Two types of panel, for a unique comfort.

Each rider has specific requirements, which is why we have developed two types of panel for a unique comfort and to satisfy all preferences.

FLOCKED PANELS
The solution for riders looking for a soft and adaptable saddle: the panel is carefully hand-filled by our artisans with Dacron fibre. This allows to produce two models of panels, either Classic or X-Technology, that provide freedom of movement for the horse and prevent the rider from weighing on the back of the animal. Classic flocked panels are lined with felt and then filled with synthetic Dacron fibre flocking, a resistant and highly adaptable material. The X-Technology panels are lined with a combination of synthetic and elastic honeycomb membrane cover and a layer of soft rubber then filled with the same Dacron fibre used in our traditional panels. The Riders therefore have all the advantages of the classic panels, but with a more comfortable and lighter product.


LATEX PANELS
The solution for those looking for a comfortable and highperformance saddle that requires minimum maintenance. The polyurethane used to fill the panel is a material that does not compress and does not deteriorate over time: it is a product comes from the motorcycling industry, specifically designed to stay unaltered over time.


ANYONE CAN HAVE A CUSTOMISED PANEL
Each rider can personalise their panel according to their specific requirements. For both latex and flocked panels the Shoulder Free option is available, with reduced front thickness to enable greater freedom of movement for the horse’s shoulder and trapezius muscle. The following thickness options are also available for flocked panels: ½ flocking, standard flocking, +1 cm and +2 cm for the rear part. For the LATEX are available: ½ flocking, standard and +1.5 cm in rear part.
