Virginia Trail Gaiter SaddleGaited horses are put together differently when compared to the trotting breeds. The Trail Gaiter® saddles were created to provide your gaited horse the freedom of movement required to perform his unique gait. Each uses our popular Flex2® tree for lightweight comfort. Learn more about the Flex2® tree.

Every Trail Gaiter® saddle features:

• The Flex2® Tunnel Skirt™ creates a channel in the spine area to decrease rubbing, sore spots, and pressure along the spine. It also allows air flow under the saddle to reduce heat build up
• Softee® seat jockeys and fenders provide a ready-to-ride, broke in feel for the rider right out of the box • Impact Foam™ Seat for all-day riding comfort
• EBS™ – ErgoBalance™ Stirrups tilt the stirrup to eliminate torque on the rider’s knees and ankles for increased comfort and promote balanced riding
• Neo-Shock™ skirt absorbs shock through neoprene filler and conforms to the horse’s back for comfort

• 3-Way adjustable in-skirt rigging for several rigging options to suit different horse conformations

There are 4 models to suit your riding preference.
