Haflinger XCH Saddle



A fit solution for a broader horse, the Haflinger XCH combines a wider gullet with a wide panel to provide a larger weight bearing contact surface. The flatter tree and shallow gusset allow the rider to sit close to the horse, promoting optimum balance and feel. The panel of the saddle is straighter cut to allow for broader shoulders. You can adjust the fit of this saddle in minutes using the GFS x-change system. The ideal solution for the wider horse that gains and looses condition from season to season. A perfect GP saddle for the every day rider with a wider horse.

All XCH saddles feature an incredibly strong but LIGHTWEIGHT Carbon fibre tree. Traditional wooden trees are often heavy due to the layers of wood and extra metal required for strength.
The saddle trees are made from a mould so every tree is PRECISELY the same. Wooden trees are often inconsistent as they are made by hand.
Carbon fibre offers strength without bulk allowing you to sit CLOSE to your horse. Wooden trees are often bulky pushing you further away from the horse.
Carbon fibre offers STRENGTH and FLEXIBILITY allowing the width to be ADJUSTABLE. The rigidity of wood means these trees are not adjustable.
