I don't have a photo of Brooke saddled without me in the saddle but this is her saddle, a ReactorPanel VSD Summit Trail. ReactorPanel is the company, which makes saddles with high density foam panels that the rigid tree rests on, and which in turn "float" on the horse's back. They are adjusted to custom fit the horse using disc inserts. This is possibly the most comfy saddle I've ever ridden in, and it also fits Brooke perfectly. VSD is a German acronym meaning all-purpose; it is designed primarily for flat work like dressage and endurance. Summit is the model name and Trail means it is outfitted with lots of extra dee rings (I have latigos on two of mine) and also billets suitable for trail riding girth lengths. It is a wonderful saddle, worth every expensive penny, to me.
