HN’s new sister site Jumper Nation checks out Voltaire Design’s new “smart saddle,” Blue Wing. Unveiled yesterday at The Breakers in Palm Beach, it includes built-in technology that tracks data from your ride via mobile app.
From the Voltaire Design website:
Blue Wing is the first ever connected saddle. Equisense technology allows Blue Wing to track the time spent at each gait, at each hand, the rhythm and the quality of the symmetry of horses.
Among other things, the mobile application will allow you to view the calendar of your sessions and have information on the intensity of each session and how many jumps each horse had.
Blue Wing is the lightest Voltaire saddle ever made.
Flexible tree points allow maximum freedom of shoulders, while Smart RideTM technology moves with the horse.
From the gullet to billets and stirrup leather keepers, the saddle is completely customizable with accents ranging from brushed aluminum and carbon to blue or brown alligator leather.
Sounds totally cool. The Blue Wing is expected to become available in May 2016 — we can’t wait to see it in action! “Like” Voltaire Design on Facebook for all the latest updates and check out the website for more details.
