The ReactorPanel® Huntsman, Hunting saddle has been developed specifically for the demands of the hunting field, for both the horse and the rider, as a ReactorPanel® saddle it is of course, capable of all distances. The most forward of our Jumping Saddles, the Huntsman is also used for all types of Jumping and is used by Eventers, Show Jumpers and people who require a comfortable,forward cut saddle for general purpose and hacking, such as Heather and her Friesian Gelding Albi in their video.
With the Huntsman we have provided the rider as standard with an extra soft seat, and soft, flexible, hard wearing Memel leather on the saddle flaps.The saddle flaps are set forward to allow the rider to ride short, the seat is medium deep and the saddle comes with adjustable knee and thigh blocks, also with the addition of rings and staples to attach bags and flask holders.
The close contact ride experienced when riding on a ReactorPanel® saddle is enhanced by this combination of leather, allowing a really close feel with you leg able to really get around the horse. The Huntsman comes in a rich dark brown or in black, with a choice of seat and knee pad leather options, the seat sizes are 16½”, 17″, 17½” and 18″. A large range of numnahs and pads are available to use with this saddle from sheepskin to wool, half numnahs and squares in a large range of colours. Girths and Stud Girths can be supplied.
Although ReactorPanel saddles are highly adjustable and our standard width tree will fit a very large percentage of horses,the tree still needs to be the correct width, Hence Very Narrow Horses or Very Wide horses may Need a special width tree.Also we do not recommend the saddles for small ponies without a consultation.
