Bardarbunga Icelandic Saddle and the Bardabunga LS for large shouldered horses
The Bardarbunga Icelandic Saddle has been designed for Icelandic horses. It has taken us many months of thought and design to create a saddle that fits the tricky, Icelandic horses conformation perfectly and the LS version is a revelation for those of you with large shouldered horses (see full LS information below)
We make this saddle with wide weight bearing panels offering a great fit, balance and comfort for the horse.
The flatter, square cantled tree aids the rider no end and this tree suits the shorter backs that can limit seat size.
This beautiful top quality saddle has soft, woolen, flocked panels.
We offer all possible Girth strap arrangements including long, dressage style and “Y” system, just let us know your preference. 3 strap girthing arrangement by default & we always add the Point and Balance arrangement for wider saddles, or on request, free of charge.
Whether you take part in gaited competitions, trail/general riding or even dressage, this saddle will suit all of these disciplines.
Suede seat and knee pads can be added on request.
OUR AMAZING LS DESIGN….
The Bardarbunga LS (Large Shoulder) Saddle *Patent Pending. As you can see in our groundbreaking design (Photo 8) we cut the panel below straighter to accommodate the larger shouldered horse, and it sits behind the shoulder, not on it!. Then it has the knee roll on top of the flap (Pic 6 and 7) not beneath, away from the horses shoulder too. This combination is perfect for the rider who wants the forward flap but whose horse has large shoulders. This saddles panels and knee roll will, therefore, not hinder the horses movements, and will not be constantly pushed back by them either. This then enables us to cut the top flap more forward, for those of you with long legs and those who like to ride short, giving you more room, as the top flap “floats” above the shoulder. Compared to traditional saddles, this massively lessens shoulder restriction and the horse will move better than it ever has! The LS, is a truly new, innovative style of saddle, that will free up your horse like never before. £925.00 Fully Custom made
This saddle (pic 8) is shown with long billets/straps. This removes bulk from under the flap, giving a closer feel to ones horse. We can supply stunning leather matching short girths for use with the longer straps. Short straps can be added if preferred.
The LS is available in GP, DRESSAGE, JUMP/EVENT saddles also.
