The new Childéric FMPL Saddle is a hybrid close contact event/jump saddle. Offering the ultimate in close contact and comfort for the horse, this model features integrated panels & innovative flap design offering extended freedom at the wither and shoulder.
Fans of the saddle include eventers Mike Ryan, James Avery and showjumper Katie Ptyches who believes that the saddles’ close contact feel and design has amplified her aids and improved communication with her horses, as she explains;
“The saddle gives me a close contact feel with my horse which makes them more responsive to aids, while still being a double flapped saddle which is the style of saddle I like most. It’s also ultra-comfortable with leather that provides maximum grip. It also didn’t need breaking in when it first arrived, which is very important when getting a new saddle, you want to get on and compete straight away.”
