Saddle construction has not changed in hundreds of years?
Why is it that saddle construction (for the most part) has not changed in hundreds of years? Olympic athletes don’t continue to use the same runners, boats, vaulting poles, etc. that they did when their sports started.
We started researching, studying and testing various materials and designs for all aspects of saddle construction. Some utilized new materials with old ideas, and some were new and innovative.
We secured a grant from the National Research Council to build on our experiences and pursue our goals. With that money we designed and redesigned, mixed and poured, tested and rode until he came up with the saddle design and features they were seeking.
We continue to innovate, stay tuned.
