Pegasus® Butterfly Tree Technically Speaking

  • The Pegasus® Butterfly Saddle is the one saddle for fitting every horse.       
  • While the idea is 100's of years old. Modern science and technology has made the dream possible.Better movement and more comfort for your horse. Saddle's tri-dimensional frame self-adjusts to any horse
  • Saddle tree actually moves with your horse's action
  • No need to re-flock as individual horses become more or less fit
  • Perfect for horses with short backs
  • Unlike any other adjustable tree saddle, there are no bolts or screws to lost or broken. Simple brilliant design makes the Pegasus Butterfly saddle work.
  • The tree has two hinges either side of your horses withers. One set of hinges adjusts the width of the front gullet exactly to your horses width. The other set of hinges adjusts the angles on each side to your horses exact angles. Each sides adjustment is independent of the other. So the saddle automatically fits.
  • Now, saddle experts will say there is also a 3 dimension: That of vertical height, as with a horse with a dropped (sway type) back or extremely high withers. For those two special features, the Pegasus Butterfly has its own special pad to give you that vertical height control.
  • The Pegasus® Butterfly saddle is designed to put your body in the same place as where you would ride if you were riding bareback, which is the natural correct place to be. With the center of gravity forward you and your horse have a more well-balanced ride, taking pressure of your horse's back. Reducing hock and back problems.
  • While the Pegasus® Butterfly saddle is a dream on every horse, for those short backed horses and horse with extremely broad shoulders this saddle is spectacular.
  • Pegasus® Comfort Fit show jumping saddles are to your horse's back
    what a great lightweight sneaker is to your foot!
    Would you rather run, and jump in dress shoes or high quality sneakers?  
    The answer is obvious.  Your horse deserves the same comfort you do!
  • Inside Pegasus® Comfort Fit saddles concealed hinges flex to fit your horse perfectly at every step: This flex means your Pegasus® saddle feels like a lightweight comfortable sneaker: Remember a saddle on your horses back is like a shoe on your foot: even a good fitting regular saddle is like a stiff dress shoe: comfortable but not maximized for athletic performance.
  • What this all means is that when your horse lifts and tucks to go over a big fence, your horse can move more freely than in non Pegasus® saddles. In addition to giving your horse more shoulder room when lifting his/her front end.  Pegasus® Comfort Fit saddles also make it easier for your horses to collect and engage their hind ends. 
  • Because the tree is designed to fit on either side of the shoulders and automatically moves when your horse moves his or her shoulders your horse is always comfortable and free moving.
