Had been used with a gaited horse (fox trotter).
INFO FROM THE MANUFACTURER: ROCKING R SADDLERY FOR SHADOWTREE (DISTRIBUTOR):
A really lightweight saddle with the benefit of flexible panels to fit all types of breeds, confirmations and also to accommodate growth.
Exceptionally higher quality leather and workmanship.
A moveable panel system to a specifically designed tree.
The rider has a comfort zone to go a 100 miles.
Allows conformational changes to occur in your horse. Not only in the young developing horse, but through the vigor’s of “getting in shape” and even adaptable to the conformational changes in our older animals.
Disperses the rider’s weight evenly along the horse's back, provides a means of “no restrictions in movement or growth” for our horses and mules, and give us close contact for riding is the goal already reached by Rocking R Saddlery.
A panel system that has been developed over the years and updated for today’s standards still remains true, the “System I”. Mounted directly to the tree with no rotating bolts or washers, which prevents any pressure points derived from the point of attachment. This panel allows for greater shoulder movement because the panel moves freely from one place and not a flexible panel bolt rotating around the attachment mounting. The term “System II” in the rear of the panel is mounted the same as the front but has a small slot that the panel can travel forward and back according to our weight in the saddle. This allows the panel to conform to all shapes and types of horses and mules backs when riders weight is place in the saddle.
