A completely treeless event saddle, with it’s own typical saddle flap design, offering a deep seat and high kneerolls, constructed from a 2-part superstructure of a high quality nubuck cow leather.
The high cantle and knee rolls can be adjusted by Velcro to position perfectly to the preference of the dressage rider’s seat, so there is an optimal support. Low and/or short knee-rolls, just as a low cantle, are optional and both included in the complete set. The pommel is interchangeable and, as such, adaptable to high or low withers. The pommel is made of fiberglass and the cantle is made of the soft material high density foam. Both link the left and right part of the saddle and together they offer stability to the saddle and comfort for the rider. Due to the saddle’s construction freedom of movement for the spine is created.
An EDIX® treeless saddle offers your horse optimum pressure distribution using the special layers of flexible materials: EDIX® MPDS, multiple pressure distribution system (see drawing). These soft, flexible layers adapt to the anatomy of the horse, as well as the rider’s posture. An EDIX® treeless saddle optimally reacts to the movements of the horse. Partly due to this, the rider learns to adapt to the horse’s movements and, as such, develops an independent position. As a result, the movements of the horse and rider become one, and from there, excellent communication is created. Because the horse is moving much more freely, it has the possibility to develop optimally, which is often shown by an increase in muscle mass. Due to the above and after the habituation period, both horse and rider, show in all aspect of horse riding more relaxation and a more fluid movement.
The EDIX® Libre is allowed for dressage competitions in the Netherlands.

Complete Set or Saddle Only
EDIX recommends purchasing a treeless saddle as a complete package, including stirrups, stirrup leathers and a matching special treeless saddle pad including inlays. The special treeless saddle pads are through their construction an addition on the pressure distributing materials of treeless saddles. The EDIX pads are anatomically shaped and equipped with the correct inlays ensure freedom of movement for the spine. If required, additional pressure and position distributing material can be added. The position-correcting material can be added in the upper insert compartments, so that you can temporarily improve a saddle position. Besides the contoured Libre pads nicely decorated with silver lining, EDIX has various models of pads that fit as well under the Libre saddle. There is a choice between saddle pads with a felt base and finished with a synthetic wool, or a foam based saddle pad finished with an Australian Merino® sheepskin. If necessary, additional pressure distributing and / or position correcting material can be added in the upper insert pockets. All EDIX pads are specially designed for the EDIX treeless saddles, but also fit under many other treeless saddles. Through their construction they are a supplement to the pressure-distributing materials of treeless saddles. The pads are anatomically shaped and equipped with the correct inserts they offer freedom of movement of the spine.
