This is a black Berney Bros saddle made in Ireland.
Berney Bros. International Saddle is designed to aid and support the rider through all disciplines, most especially jumping. This saddle is made with top grain cow hide on the seat and knee cushions and top quality vegetable tanned so that the leather fibres hold their strength and durability over time. As with all of Berney’s saddles, this saddle is made with a laminated beech wood spring tree that is strength tested to the British Safety Standard. By using a spring tree we were able to achieve added shock absorbency while keeping the saddle lightweight. We designed the tree with a higher gullet plate and cut back head to accommodate the more blood horses with more prominent withers. The material we use to achieve the ultimate comfort and welfare for the horse is our fully leather lined panels flocked with pure new wool. The biggest advantage that this material provides against others is that it spreads the weight of impact over a bigger surface area allowing the horse full use of themselves. Pure new wool also retains its spring and shock absorbency over time and moulds to the shape of the horses back compensating for horses changing shape throughout the season.
