The Kentaur ‘Ithaka AP Monoflap with Carbon Tree’ Dressage Saddle is a beautiful new release mono style dressage saddle from Kentaur. With an exposed block knee roll design, this saddle epitomizes the wants and needs of the modern dressage rider. The large knee rolls are high to provide stability to the thigh, with no interference to the knee itself or the riders lower leg. The seat is deep, with the added advantage of being a ‘mono flap’ to allow the rider a feeling of close contact with the horse.
Kentaur has developed a carbon saddle tree based on the very good experience with the carbon saddle tree in the Titan model.
This saddle tree is laminated with many layers of carbon and Kevlar which are two special types of composite fibers.
The curing of the saddle tree takes place in a special oven with a consistent temperature. All the air bubbles that can occur within each layer during the lamination process are sucked away.
This vacuum creates a totally homogeneous saddle tree which is characterized by its ease, firmness, flexibility, non-deformability and shape stability. Thanks to its small thickness, the rider's contact with the horse improves considerably.
The Carbon Saddle Gullet is unique shock absorbing and helps create perfect synergy between horse and rider.
The Carbon Saddle Gullet is with Kentaur's ordinary adjustable headstone, which comes in 5 different sizes and is interchangeable or adjustable by pressure on the press machine.
The combination of carbon saddle tree and interchangeable / adjustable copper is currently very unique on the world market within saddles.
