The Caliente – 16 inch



The Classic Caliente saddle blends modern design with utmost comfort, catering to riders seeking both style and support during lengthy rides. Its 2″ biothane leathers with cam buckle, straight cantle binding, and slick fork contribute to its contemporary appeal, while the deep seat pocket ensures lower back support for extended excursions.

One standout feature is the formed foam thigh rolls, offering a forgiving alternative to traditional hard wooden swells. These rolls provide stability, especially when navigating sudden movements from your horse or mule.

Crafted with a nicely padded soft seat made from upholstery and neoprene foams, it’s meticulously shaped without any stitching lines that might cause discomfort. Versatility is a key trait—suitable for all horse and mule breeds, the Caliente accommodates various back shapes, from long and straight to dippy and short.

Its narrow to moderate twist ensures a comfortable ride, minimizing knee and hip fatigue even during prolonged use. The leathers facilitate smooth, unrestricted movement, reducing the likelihood of legs and feet falling asleep. Meanwhile, the ultra-thin tree and advanced panel design offer a secure seat next to and down on the horse.

Notably, the horn provides added versatility for activities like ponying young stock, strategically positioned to prevent accidental impalement. In essence, the Caliente stands out for its functionality and support. It’s important to note that the only difference between the Caliente and the Liberty saddle lies in their front thigh blocking.
