Lovatt & Ricketts Rubicon Trail Saddle

The Rubicon’s unique innovative saddle tree featuring a more open pommel and swept back tree points, which gives a whole new freedom to the movement of the horse, eliminating restrictions in the shoulder area. The stirrup bars are located in a centered position, thus enabling the rider to achieve a comfortable leg position over long distances. The stirrup bars are hinged reliving any pressure on the horse that is a common problem in this area where the stirrup leathers are attached. These swing stirrup bars are made of the highest quality heavyweight stainless steel and crafted to be unobtrusive to the rider’s thigh, which is a common problem associated with the long distance riding. English wool serge lined panels stuffed with the finest 100% English lamb’s wool to assure you of the ultimate in comfort for your horses back. This model features our unique billeting system offering the rider the flexibility to move the billets to give you the perfect girth line.

The Rubicon™ model has been fitted successfully on many breeds of horse.

Each tree is specifically made for each model, designed by the Lovatt & Ricketts team and produced by their own Master saddletree makers.
