S-Series Universal GPD - Standard Wither

Colour Black, Brown
Seat Size 17, 17½, 18
Changeable Gullet R-Bar
Series S-Series
Conformation Standard Wither

This saddle will suit you if you prefer to concentrate on flatwork, dressage and hacking instead of jumping. It has a generous seat for riders who like the feel of ‘more room’ in the seat, or if you are slightly wider in the hips.

All Kent & Masters saddles share the features below. This S-Series Universal GPD benefits from superior craftsmanships and higher specification design details for a truly luxurious feel and appearance. It also features the following details:

  • A straighter cut panel and longer flaps than the Universal GP, to accommodate the longer leg position required by dressage and flatwork.
  • A generous panel with a good bearing surface, and wide channel for spine clearance.
  • Full length, generous front gussets
  • While this saddle has a standard-wither gullet depth, it offers a very universal fit for a variety of conformations.
  • A wider, flatter seat, ideal for the fuller figure.
  • Velcro knee blocks under the flap which can be positioned to suit your leg length and position. Ghosted stitching on the knee pad helps it contour neatly around the block and ensures added comfort.
  • Changeable girthing arrangement which allows saddle stability to be optimised instantly (see girthing options below).

changeable gullet barsChangeable gullet bar

A changeable gullet bar allows you or your saddle fitter to modify the width of the saddle’s gullet to suit the horse’s wither profile as the horse changes shape with either exercise, muscle development, maturity or rest. There are 8 options in the short S-bar and 7 in the long R-bar.

Campaign for Real Wool100% British wool flocking

Wool is a natural fibre and provides superior softness and comfort for the horse because it moulds and settles quickly, giving optimum panel contact with the horse’s back. Two reinforced flocking slots make it easy for your saddle fitter to do any necessary adjustments to fit on-site

WE ADVISE THAT SADDLE FITTING IS CARRIED OUT BY A SADDLE FITTER

Kent & Masters GP Saddles are fitted with three girth straps (billets), the third one being moveable.
This flexible girthing arrangement allows saddle stability to be optimised instantly.

 

Girthing Neutral PositionBegin by girthing in the neutral position using the second and third billet.
(NOTE: This is the same as girthing on the first and third billets on a saddle with a conventional girthing system)

 

Girthing saddle move forwardIf you find the saddle slips forward, you can use the point (front) strap and the third strap

 
 

Girthing saddle move backwardIf the back of the saddle lifts away from the horse’s back, move the third strap onto the floating balance position

 

Girthing DO NOTNEVER girth using the point strap and first strap. This causes saddle instability and potential discomfort for your horse.
