The Elan-Ultra™ Close-Contact Hunt Saddle

The Elan-Ultra™ Close-Contact Hunt Saddle that is built to the same specifications as that of our Elan™ saddle, one of our most popular models for over 25 years; due to its versatility and elegant but functional design. It is a superb hunt seat saddle at home in the show ring and yet is perfect for jumping medium size fences. We have created a double skinned saddle using Ultra-Tack™ English Calf skin for a luxurious feel and security, the latest version has a super soft padded skirt for security and comfort.

Built on a European styled medium deep close-contact spring saddletree, but with a more open pommel to enable freedom of the shoulder; thus enabling the horse to move with more alacrity. Close-contact wool flocked panels  make for superb comfort for your horses back, adjustable Velcro® knee blocks that can be placed in the ideal position will help the rider obtain their optimum seat. It is recommended to use Calf Skin leathers with this model as conventional leathers can result in premature wear.

The Elan Ultra fits our quarter horse perfectly! 

Great customer service!  Our trainer has an Elan and now 3 of her clients also have them.  We all ride quarter horses and the saddles are great fits and extremely comfortable.  It’s like sitting on a cushion!
