Close contact for you and comfort for your horse: these are the advantages that this close contact saddle provides during jumping thanks to innovations benefiting the horse:

  • Panels fully in contact with the horse's back to avoid pressure points 
  • (less pressure on the transverse spinal process)
  • Three-point girthing system ensuring the saddle's stability and proper fit to distribute pressure over a larger surface
  • The saddle opening around the shoulders frees up the horse's movements

For the rider, only one layer of leather under the skirt (lower cut of the saddle flap around the stirrup bars) and comfort for the rider's abductors (wide pommel).


Benefits:

  • Allows the rider to have more precise actions
  • Wide pommel supports the rider's abductors
  • Comfort for the horse
  • 3-point girthing system
  • Long buckle-guards are sewn to preserve the underneath of the saddle flap from wear
  • Made out of calfskin and full grain leather

CARE INSTRUCTIONS

 

Using my saddle for the first time

In order to protect the leather, it is essential to initially oil your saddle. At CWD, we carry out this process before delivering your made-to-measure saddle. No additional treatment is needed, and you can use it as soon as you receive it.

Beware of the risk of staining white clothes, especially during the first few uses.

 

Using my accessories for the first time

Our accessories are delivered without having been oiled. Apply a large quantity of CWD oil or conditioner evenly and repeat if necessary to obtain the desired suppleness. Use the CWD glove to massage any excess conditioner into the leather. If possible, let the leather absorb the CWD conditioner for 24 hours in a well-ventilated room. Natural leathers will darken before lightening slightly to reach their definitive shade.

Before oiling or greasing your accessories, make sure to try them on your horse first. Accessories which have been greased cannot be returned.

 

Day-to-day care of my saddle and accessories

The leathers used in saddle making are living materials and must be regularly cared for. Care treatments should be adapted to use and must take the climate and the season into account.

Here are two key steps to ensure your leathers remain comfortable and beautiful.

1. Clean, after each use using a sponge and CWD liquid glycerine soap to keep the leather supple, pleasant and high-performing.

2. Apply CWD conditioner at least twice a month on all the equipment, using the CWD glove. Don’t forget the stitching.

 

Our expert advice

In summer, after each use, the leather needs to be treated to compensate for and repair the drying out caused by the sun and high temperatures.

In winter, a heated area is needed to combat the ambient humidity, which is damaging to its lifespan and can be a source of mould.

Avoid the following
As far as possible, avoid cleaning your leathers with products which contain solvents which will prematurely discolour the saddle and will dry out the leather fibres.

Tip
If your saddle has been in contact with water, dry the leather carefully by placing it in a warm room. Once dry, clean it and apply the CWD conditioner.

Be careful!
Do not grease a saddle which has not been cleaned first: you risk letting the dirt penetrate into the leather, damaging its appearance and shine.
