Vicky Eggertsson (multiple German and Middle- European champion in five-gait, T2 and pace test, three times finalist at the world championships, IPZV- Trainer A, international sport judge) and Beggi Eggertsson (FT- trainer, five times worldchampion in several pace tests with Lótus frá Aldenghoor):
„We are highly satisfied with the Hrimnir PRO Soft Seat saddle. We have tried many different saddles, but the Hrimnir PRO is in our opinion the best Icelandic horse saddle since it combines comfort with a perfect seat for the rider. It is a very well balanced saddle, that surely contributes to our riding successes”.
As the shape and fitness of each horse varies, the use of a saddle pad should be considered - especially for horses that do not have much development in their back muscles, or if the horse is lacking muscle mass in certain areas. Horses change their shape about 5 times during their lifetime.
- Additional Information
Since its debut in 2008, our popular Hrimnir Pro model has satisfied many different types of riders. Its medium deep seat suits all riding styles and gives the rider the freedom to find a balanced position.
The knee blocks are placed under the saddle flap for extra comfort. They offer good support and steadiness for the leg.
A double layer of leather in the flap keeps the flap soft and flexible, and offers good grip.
The additional layer of BayFlex® foam foam in the soft seat makes this saddle very comfortable for the rider. Therefore, this saddle is also a good choice for long distance riders, or riders who get sore easily.
The high quality DuPont® saddle tree and the BayFlex® foam padding guarantee optimal weight distribution on the horse’s back, strength and flexibility of the saddle, and maximum comfort for horse and rider. The expert design lets the horse move freely and allows harmonious and sustainable riding, helping the rider to sit in balance and to give fine- tuned aids in close contact with the horse.
The BayFlex® foam padding conforms to the horse’s back during riding, but always retains its original shape again after usage. This ensures a long lasting fit for different kinds of horses, and makes sure that the saddle pads always stay symmetrical. This soft but strong material offers optimal shock absorption and protects the back of the horse.
The XChange® gullet plate system makes it easy to adjust the saddle width yourself in six easy steps for individual conformation, or changes in the horse.
The Billet system and balance strap ensures increased stability of the saddle and an extra billet strap gives the option to attach an additional single girth in front of the regular girth. The extra girth can provide more stability in cases of poor balance of horse or rider.
Our saddles are entirely made of quality leather and high- tech materials.
