New model: Empire Aztec

Wow! How happy we are with this model, the Empire Aztec. This saddle is specially designed for horses with high to very high withers. The shape of the saddle tree, combined with the cushions, makes it easy to create a correct balance point. We made sure when designing the tree to have a wide twist, so that your horse has enough room around the (base of) the withers and can make a good wither elevator.

The cushions have a wide chamber and because they are filled with wool, they can be accurately adjusted to your horse’s back for optimal pressure distribution and balance. And through the TreeClix system, the tree size can be adjusted by up to 4cm.

The Aztec’s deep seat provides an extremely stable and confident feel, giving optimal control. The singleflap design gives maximum close contact feel. The extra soft knee rolls, available in different lengths, subtly supports you without hindering you. In addition, the position and length of the sweat sheet can be adjusted according to your needs to allow for optimal posture and seating.

We have already tested it with a few riders and they were very happy with how their horses felt and how they themselves could easily sit in balance in this saddle. Would you also like to learn about the Empire Aztec? Then schedule an appointment with one of our dealers soon.

What do our saddle fitters say about Empire?

“For me, the best thing about Empire saddles is that the customer gets that fine close-contact feeling with his horse, without the horse having to sacrifice freedom of movement and comfort.”
