  • The PEAK Performance™ saddle line is designed and ridden by Julie Goodnight. She is a trainer, clinician, host of the TV show Horse Master with Julie Goodnight, and she’s on the Advisory Board of the Western Dressage Association of America. Drawing from her varied background in English and Western riding and her strong upbringing in classical riding, Goodnight recognizes that regardless of discipline a balanced position for the rider and fit for the horse are fundamental. Goodnight’s saddles provide a correct seat, narrow twist, close contact feel, and absolute comfort for both horse and rider to make them the perfect multi-use performance saddles. Equally suitable for the arena, show ring, or on the trail, the PEAK Performance™ saddles are great for trail riding, reining, cow work, and Western Dressage.

Flex2® skirts have a shock absorbing neoprene filler for the horse and rider's comfort; skirt has a close contact design for precise cueing, a Slip-Not™ skirt liner for easy care with XPG™ gel bar pad for your horse's comfort, Impact Foam seat with narrow twist and broad pocket for all-day comfort, Softee® seat jockeys and fenders provides a “ready to ride” saddle to minimize rider's knee and ankle strain because they are broke in right from the start. ErgoBalance™ stirrups and pre-twisted stirrup leathers reduce knee and ankle fatigue while promoting balanced riding. Available in Regular Oil finish, Walnut, or black (as shown).

    “The short skirt and three-way adjustable in-skirt rigging with angled rear dee allow your horse free movement. The Flex2® tree allows for plenty of rider support and weight distribution. I am close to the horse in just the right spot on his back for a balanced ride and good control. These are high quality saddles at a great price.” – Julie Goodnight
