FRA "Libre" Treeless Dressage Complete
From FRA saddles in the Netherlands!
A COMPLETE treeless dressage saddle, with a deep seat and high knee rolls, leathers, stirrups, and custom matching spine-free pad with Merino sheepskin underside.
NOTE: This is the last of the earlier version of what is now known as the "EDIX" Libre Dressage Saddle--discounted as such because of the former FRA branding (EDIX is a new branch of the same family-owned company).
An FRA® treeless saddle offers your horse optimum pressure distribution using the special layers of flexible materials: Multiple pressure distribution system. These soft, flexible layers adapt to the anatomy of the horse, as well as the rider’s posture. An FRA® treeless saddle optimally reacts to the movements of the horse. Partly due to this, the rider learns to adapt to the horse’s movements and, as such, develops an independent position. As a result, the movements of the horse and rider become one, and from there, excellent communication is created. Because the horse is moving much more freely, it has the possibility to develop optimally, which is often shown by an increase in muscle mass. Due to the above and after the habituation period, both horse and rider, show in all aspect of horse riding more relaxation and a more fluid movement.
Features of the "Libre" saddle:
- Consisting of a 2-part superstructure of high quality nubuck cow leather with contoured saddle pad including 3Mesh inlays
- Offering FRA special multiple pressure distribution system: a shock-absorbing & flexible sub-structure of rubber, high density foam, neoprene, and fleece allowing the saddle to conform to the horse's movements.
- High cantle and knee rolls can be adjusted by Velcro making the position perfectly adaptable to the rider
- Sturdy fibreglass zippered pommel and dense foam cantle (lower cantle option also included!)
- Reinforced Leathers with ultra-light PVC composite stirrups
- Matching anatomically shaped Libre saddle pad shown is included in price ( $220.50 value)
- Less than 21 lbs, so very easy to hoist up on even tall horses!
Fits a broad range of horses, from mutton or broad-shouldered horses to high-withered horses. The Libre Pad with two shim pockets and spinal channel is highly recommended for adequate spinous processes clearanced which traditional wool or felt etc. pads cannot offer.
BONUS!... for all those who have tried other treeless saddles on the market and have been frustrated with them rolling or sliding even when cinched snugly and mounting clean, you CAN potentially mount from the ground with the EDIX treeless saddles! With their fixed pommel arch and firmer construction than most other treeless saddles on the market, these amazing saddles lock down on your horse's back very much like a treed saddle. Of course the use of a mounting block is recommended when possible as this is always easier on your horse's withers, but you won't be as likely to be stranded when you have to get off out on the trail!
NOTE: If your agility is not what it used to be, are a larger rider and struggle to mount as clean as you'd like, or have a particularly tall horse, my mounting aid "StableMount" is a must-have!
