EDIX Emir Saddle $1795
With leathers, stirrups and Merino UNI pad $1995
The EDIX Emir is designed for those riders who are looking for a comfortable, high-quality, all-round saddle, suitable for recreational riding, with dressage and light jumping levels. The saddle is made of soft and supple high-quality Turkish calf leather and soft leather panels filled with synthetic wool and a wide channel for free movement of the spine and correct pressure distribution. A leg blockt that is perfectly tailored to the rider can simply be positioned differently in the nicely hidden pockets. The variety of knee rolls can easily be changed or positioned due to the strong Velcro attachment.
The combination of saddle flaps that are mounted slightly forward and English girthstraps makes this saddle a perfect combination for those looking for an all-round saddle and dressage riders with a shorter leg length, needing shorter saddle flaps.
The EDIX Emir is called a soft-tree saddle because the saddle is more structured, compared to many other treeless saddles, yet the EDIX Emir versatility saddle is technically still a completely treeless saddle due to the lack of a solid tree. The EDIX soft tree saddles are made up of various flexible soft shock-absorbing layers and panels filled with synthetic wool, which fully adapt to the anatomy and posture of the horse. Thanks to this construction, the EDIX Emir dressage saddle offers the rider a narrow and balanced seat and still offers great flexibility and room for the spine for horse movements. The front gussets have a stabilizing built-in strap and are quilted for an extremely stable position of the saddle.
The EDIX Emir dressage saddle is designed as an independent saddle. With a replaceable iron head system and the option to refill the panels, the EDIX Emir Versatility Saddle is easy to adjust when your horse changes anatomy due to growth and / or muscle development through training. In addition, there is the possibility to (temporarily) support the saddle position and / or to correct it with a special treeless 8-pocket saddle cover in which the horse and rider have inserts.
The EDIX Y-girth system consists of 2 front girth bumps and a third Y-girth bump, together they ensure that the girth can be attached in several ways, so that, depending on the horse's build, it will properly distribute pressure.
A distinguishing feature of many other dressage saddles is that the stirrup bar is placed more towards the center of the saddle, in order to achieve a correct leg position and to relieve the knees. The saddle can further be adjusted to the preferences of the rider by choosing from low, high or short knee turns and positioning them in the perfect Velcro knee pockets.
