The Classic Caliente spells comfort. A contemporary design featuring tear drop fenders, straight cantle binding, a slick fork and a deep seat pocket gives the rider comforting lower back support for the all day ride.
Another attribute of this saddle is the formed foam thigh rolls. These rolls are more forgiving the hard wooden swells of a traditional tree if your mule or horse makes some sudden unexpected moves.
The nicely padded soft-seat uses both upholstery and neoprene foams, hand skived and shaped to an anatomically correct shape with no stitching lines that can rub you raw. This saddle is popular with all breeds and types of horses and mules too!
The round skirt design gives it ability to fit the various back shapes – long and short, dippy and straight. This saddle has a narrow to moderate twist that allows the rider to ride all day long without getting fatigued in the knees and hips.
Another plus for this saddle is the easy free flowing movement of the fenders that virtually eliminate the problems that some folks have with their legs and feet falling asleep. As for security, it is all there.
The ultra thin tree and advance panel design allows the rider a next-to and down-on the horse secure seat. Oh… and don’t forget that horn… you can really use it.
Great for ponying young stock along, yet low enough where you will not easily get impaled. In closing, the only difference between the Caliente and the Liberty is that the Caliente has the blocking.Customize YOUR Caliente Now!
