Amortize, airy and many other qualities !!

In three decades, the saddler of Aveyron, which has built a solid reputation in the world of endurance and riding of nature, has developed, around its models of saddles, a whole set of accessories: Stirrups, stirrups, casters, saddlebags, straps and carpets.
Most of these accessories have been designed and built on the experience of Gaston Mercier as a high-end rider, with the contribution of some great champions of the discipline.


We tested two products: the pad in the shape of a saddle and the pad chabraque, which is more covering.

We have equipped an obstacle horse. Proof already that these products Gaston Mercier, resulting from the endurance, prove to be effective cross-functional!
For the look, we like it or not - the editorial is very divided -, on the other hand, what has seduced us unanimously is that the carpet settles well, finds its place, and does not move hair. Without doubt its strap pass contributes to this stability. A criterion that could be noted all the more because, on the horse solicited for the test, carpets, whatever they are, tend to retreat.
The line is ergonomic and very worn, which is undeniably source of comfort for the horse, a fortiori if his tourniquet is salllant. The preformed location of the cantle also avoids contact with the kidney, where sometimes the hair is worn away by repeated rubbing of the carpet.
After a rather rhythmic session on the flat, and enamelled by a few jumps on isolated obstacles, removing the carpet, the horse had practically no trace of sweating. Even if many carpets meet this criterion, it is also very light, like the chabraque, yet of great dimension.
One of the two singularities of this carpet is this slit which subtracts from the back line any kind of contact or more precisely moves it on either side of the spine. The other is that the panels, the shape of which resembles that of panels of the saddle, are scratched pockets in which it is possible to insert shims which play the role of integrated shock absorbers.
The saddler offers two options which, in view of the behavior of the carpet, do not seem really necessary to us. There is a choice between shape memory foam pieces (40 E the game), which provide comfort to the horse by being a distributor, or Noen shocks (65 E the game), rather intended to give more comfort to the horse rider.
