The Amerigo Vega Special Jumping Saddle is a popular saddle that works well with a large variety of horses and riders.
Amerigo saddles are created by Peter Menet for top level performance, with correct anatomical design based on equine biomechanics that protects the well being of your horse while producing an efficient seat. What ever the level of your sport, you and your horse can concentrate fully on your performance, with total balance and precision. Amerigo saddles are designed to influence a correct, relaxed position which allows the leg to naturally fall into the correct position enabling the rider to ride without tension, while the riders weight is transmitted to the horse on those areas where it can carry without being disturbed from its natural rhythm and balance, allowing the horse to round his back and engage the hind quarters more easily.
The experience gained by Amerigo over many years has gone into the design of the Vega saddles. The tree is a specially created synthetic tree incorporating a tempered steel head iron, and the panels are wool flocked independent panels. The seat and kneerolls are softly padded with calfskin leather.
