• Prestigious jumping saddle


Jumping saddle in pigskin-grained cowhide and chestnut alligator, martingale nails and fall-down staples in hand-polished, gold-plated brass.

A jumping saddle designed for competition : its unique design makes this model an excellent sports saddle by positioning the rider even closer to the horse. He or she feels perfectly balanced, with maximum contact, particularly during the jump. The seat is semi-hollow and narrow at thigh level; the broad seating space facilitates engagement of the pelvis while improving the distribution of rider’s weight. For greater stability following the obstacle, it is equipped with knee rolls in front and back.

These saddles were created by Guy Chanel to promote his expertise at prestigious exhibitions in Chicago, Paris, Geneva and Moscow. Research models in style, they also serve to create his future models. Others are art works, unique pieces, including this miniature, which is a Portuguese saddle made in 2001 for an exposition in Switzerland.

These saddles are made with the finest materials, such as alligator, ostrich and skate-fish skin. They are one of a kind and demonstrate that Guy Chanel is expert at rendering his own version of the great classic saddles while retaining their original functional features.This saddler never says no to making art a part of craftsmanship.
