Many years of experience of working with world class riders and their horses, across all disciplines gave Amerigo designer, Peter Menet, a wealth of knowledge on how saddle design can influence the horses movement and performance both positively and negatively. His extensive knowledge of the biomechanics of both horse and rider allow him to create saddles that influence both horse and rider in a positive way, improving the performance and also the long term health of the horse.
A horse that is working with a saddle that allows it to work with its own body, instead of against it, will have a much happier mental attitude to work, and also a healthier body, keeping it performing at a good level for much longer.
All Amerigo saddles are made with wool flocked independent panels, which can be made with different levels of volume to suit each horse. They can also be adjusted or changed very easily as well as being low maintenance. Reflocking on a regular basis is not required. If your horse changes shape, Amerigo saddles can be adjusted at the head iron to be made wider or narrower as required, up to a maximum of 1.5cm, and a new horse may not automatically mean a new saddle too.
