General Purpose Saddle Bern

Art.-No. 2048 | 2690,00 €

The new Bern general purpose saddle is the latest addition to Kieffer´s saddle range, designed to meet the requirements of the wider, short backed horse who need a spacious saddle contact area. To achieve this, the saddle is based on our saddle tree 1000, combined with an extra-wide, foam-moulded panel.

The saddle flap is forward cut with softly curved knee rolls to enable a relaxed seat and more freedom around the knees. The saddle is suitable for riders with longer thighs or those who prefer riding with shorter stirrup leathers. Made of fine, slightly padded leather, the saddle provides increased stability and a higher level of comfort for the rider.

The Bern is the perfect choice for Ibero & Arabian horses, Haflingers, Friesian and Baroque horses as well as smaller cold-blooded horses.

Upon request, this beautiful and functional saddle is available either in one or two-toned colours.
