Black Country Saddles Vinici Range

Posted on Tuesday, October 24, 2017 by Sarah Wild

With more than 80 years of combined experience, the Master Saddlers at Black Country Saddles have designed the Vinici range.

The Vinici range is designed for close-contact riding maximizing the feel between horse and rider. The absence of an outer flap helps to achieve the feel of a narrower twist which is beneficial on wider-fitting horses. The flexible overlay girthing system lies neatly above the cushioned sweat flap to avoid any discomfort.

The Vinici Dressage saddle’s single/mono flap maximises the contact between horse and rider. The medium deep seat and knee roll configuration offer non-restrictive security and support for the correct posture.

The Vinici Jump saddle offers a jumping saddle built with a narrow twist and straight points to allow freedom for horse and rider.

The Vinici Solare saddle has been developed to incorporate the well-established Vinici single/mono flap design. It is designed to enhance rider position when show jumping, providing an outstanding closeness to the horse.

The Vinici Tex Eventer saddle is specifically targeted at event riders. The forwardness of the flap and the long sloping seat allow plenty of room behind the rider to move around in the saddle and have support when leaning back over drop fences.

This saddle is designed with pure wool panels to help shock absorption when landing and also allowing the horse freedom to stride out without restriction on the shoulders.
