County press release about this saddle:
Horse Loses Pain, Rider Has Everything to Gain from Innovative Saddle Design Lisbon, Md
County Saddlery announced its Sensation jumping saddle, touting its innovative design as the key to solving the frequently occurring problem of horses’ high withers, a problem riders often unsuccessfully attempt to address by using multiple saddle pads. Withers are the highest part of a horse’s back, located at the base of the neck above the shoulders – the height of a horse is measured up to the withers. For jumping horses with high, narrow withers, saddles often are a painful, difficult fit, forcing riders to compensate by using extra saddle pads. But riders’ efforts to fix the high-withers problem with saddle pads are misguided, according to available research. County’ Saddlery’s new Sensation jumping saddle solves the high-withers problem with only one saddle pad. Along with County’s recently released Innovation saddle, Sensation is specifically designed to provide unmatched comfort and clearance for horses with high withers, according to the company, providing unprecedented pain relief for the horse and maximum performance for the rider.
County’s traditional methods take longer and require a higher degree of craftsmanship than competitors’ methods, but once a rider sits in a County, the results are clearly worth it. The company’s commitment to quality and detail is reflected in every saddle it makes. Resisting the trend toward cheaper production methods that use foam-rubber panels and plastic trees, County saddles are handmade on laminated beech-wood trees, covered in the world’s finest leather, and flocked with pure wool to maximize horses’ comfort and fit. One of the few saddlery companies in the world to make their own tree points, County sets the industry standard in design and innovation.
