The X-D2 K Free was derived using the X-D2 tree, but with a square cantle that places the rider closer to the horse without blocking movement. The tree is unisex, making it very comfortable for both male and female riders. The panels feature a half-moon cut out which will not interfere with the horse's shoulders. The seat is much wider towards the cantle than a traditional Dressage saddle. This helps to improve the rider's balance as well as distribute the rider's weight across a broader surface. The tree contains two large membranes, obtained by applying our new technological procedure OTI (Over Tree Injection). The blocks are anatomically shaped and positioned higher on the flap to provide freedom for the rider's knees. The front billets are secured to the saddle with heavy-duty elastic, which expands and contracts with the horse. The rear billets are attached using our new “close-contact” attachment system which helps to reduce the thickness of material under the rider's thigh. This saddle comes with the F23.0 Trapezium Pad for a perfect fit.
