Horse Close Contact Saddles

Are you a "just jump it" kind of rider?  If you like your jumps high and fast, and think flatwork is just a necessary evil before you get to the jumping, you need a Close Contact Saddle.

Close Contact Saddles are designed exclusively for jumping.  They are minimalist in terms of padding, the idea being to get the rider as close to the motion of the horse as possible. They generally do not have any features that "hold" the rider in, such as deep seats, knee rolls, or thigh blocks.  For the biggest fences, a rider needs to get up and out of the saddle and move as they need to allowing their horse to make that big effort.

Also called "jumping saddles," Close Contact Saddles usually have shorter, more forward skirts, which allow for the shorter stirrup leathers needed for jumping.
