The Rubicon’s unique innovative saddle tree featuring a more open pommel and swept back tree points, which gives a whole new freedom to the movement of the horse, eliminating restrictions in the shoulder area. The stirrup bars are located in a centered position, thus enabling the rider to achieve a comfortable leg position over long distances. Our stirrup bars are hinged relieving any pressure on the horse that is a common problem in this area were the stirrup leathers are attached.
