WE SELL OUR SADDLES THROUGH
COLUMBIA BASIN KNOT COMPANY.
CONTACT THEM IF YOU ARE
INTERESTED IN A SADDLE OR HAVE ANY QUESTIONS.
These saddles are specially designed
for the wide, table-backed, low-withered horse (does this sound
familiar?). The gullets are wide, and the seats are
comfortable, which ensures a good ride for both horse and rider!
We will have more photos and information on our personal Duett
saddles very soon.
the name DUETT is new, the saddle manufacturer has been in
business for 30 years and is well established in Europe. All
the saddles sold by Duett are EXCLUSIVE to Duett and cannot
be purchased here from anyone else. In addition, some of the
models are designed BY and FOR Duett and cannot be purchased
anywhere else in the world. The key to the comfort of the
Rondo and all the other Duett models is the superb design of
the seat ... no high pommel, no hard edges under your leg,
nice wide platform for your rear end! You really do forget
about the saddle and are able to concentrate on your riding.
saddles are built on a conventional saddle tree:
metal-reinforced laminated wood, with "spring tree" - webbed
seat for rider comfort.

The flap is just a little bit wider
