The Xtreme is actually based on a saddle designed for Gini , Dean Woodward’s wife. Based on a very old Roe Richardson Saddle she discovered, in order to help her ride a very sharp, extremely reactive horse she owned, so maybe it should be named after her horse “Drumbeat” who is unfortunately no longer with us.
Accessories available for the Xtreme, Classic Endurance and Christine Yeoman Endurance Saddle include water bottle holders, weights that fit within the saddle and are balanced, coming as 3lb, 6lb, 9lb and 12lb, hand crafted weight bags for additional weight and a large selection of numnahs available with sheepskin or wool.
