Item Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
Spanish Trail-Lite Saddles have clean, lean, elegant lines. The pommel is shaped to reflect the Spanish heritage of paso and most naturally gaited horses. They’re designed for training or trail riding. Like all Don West Saddles, they're built to maximize comfort for both horse and rider, with minimum weight and bulk, putting you close to your horse for naturally gaited horse "sit-down equitation", the position that brings out the best in gaited horses, and is most comfortable for trail riding.

Paso and naturally gaited horses and pleasure-trail riding are enhanced by a close-fitting, short-barred tree that makes even contact with the horse's back, effectively spreading the rider's weight over the largest area without interfering with the horse's shoulder action. A rider's weight change must be transmitted immediately and accurately to the horse without causing pain or discomfort. Don West Saddles do that. Devices that dull the communications between rider and horse are neither required, nor desired.



Don West's Tree Design puts the rider as close as possible to the horse, in the "sweet spot", the same place that you'd end up in if you were riding bareback, with your legs hanging comfortably forward, in the "rider's groove", the narrowest place around the horse's chest. The Don West Saddle Tree spreads the rider’s weight over the largest area of the horse's back, without interfering with its shoulder action, or digging into its loins. A rider’s weight change and leg aids should be able to be transmitted immediately and accurately to the horse, without causing pain or discomfort. The bulk less rigging in our saddles gets you even closer to your horse. Devices like spring panels, etc., that lift the rider off the horses back and dull the communication between rider and horse are neither required, nor desired. Don West Training-Trail Saddles are the result of Don's thirty years of experience; breeding, training, and trail riding naturally gaited horses.  They are the original gaited horse trail saddles, designed for what Don calls "sit-down equitation"... "the saddles with the fit built in...not added on!"
