One of the greatest saddle innovations in recent history has to be the monoflap design, wherein there’s only one piece of leather separating your legs from the horse. (As opposed to two PLUS a lumpy girth buckle!). As a result, monoflaps provide an unparalleled close contact feel. Personally, I won’t ride in anything else!
Did you know that Amerigo offers monoflap saddles for both jumping and dressage?
The newly redesigned Amerigo Vega Monoflap Jump Saddle features an extended forward flap to accommodate the more forward leg position desired by competitive riders. The flaps have also been redesigned with a soft padded layer for additional comfort, grip and security in the saddle. This popular saddle is perfect for riders who like a close contact feel and an uninhibited leg position. Calfskin provides extra grip in the saddle and a “broken in” feel. The bottom of the flap is reinforced with cowhide for added durability.
The monoflap design of the unique Amerigo Vega Monoflap Dressage Saddle brings the rider closer to the horse with a close contact feel. The Vega Monoflap Dressage offers a well balanced and moderately deep seat that encourages proper positioning of the seat and leg. The flaps have also been redesigned with a soft padded layer for additional comfort, grip and security in the saddle. Anatomically shaped blocks follow the angle of the thigh. The unique V-Billet system is designed with a sliding attachment to allow proper girth position for the comfort of the horse. The bottom of the flap is reinforced with cowhide for added durability.
Designed by master saddler Peter Menet, Amerigo Vega saddles are designed to sit the rider’s weight slightly more forward, over the strongest part of the horse’s back. This takes pressure off the sensitive area of the back, allowing the hind legs to swing under, and encouraging the horse’s back to lift without interference from the saddle. Made in Italy with the finest craftsmanship, attention to detail, and independent Swiss style panels. Amerigo Vega is the saddle that puts the rider in a position that provides perfect balance and harmony with the horse.
