The WOW saddle stands out as a truly unparalleled creation in the realm of saddles. With two decades dedicated to research and development, we've honed our saddle designs to deliver peak performance, resulting in the ultimate achievement.
The distinctive feature of a WOW saddle lies in its tree. Especially the recently introduced 2023 tree which showcases remarkable flexibility, marking a breakthrough in reducing resistance. It has lateral flexion, which means it rotates with the horses shoulders, in front of the rider's seat. This revelation has illuminated the constraints of conventional saddle trees, while while ensuring rider stability and comfort.
The crux of rider asymmetry stems from the pelvis and the distribution of weight through the saddle's seat. WOW stands alone in addressing this asymmetry by offering customizable adjustments to the seat, establishing a harmonious connection between rider and horse.
The saddle's panels seamlessly extend the supportive structure of the tree, providing an expansive weight-bearing area that surpasses traditional saddles. In fact, WOW saddles boast a larger weight-bearing surface compared to equivalent Western saddles.
This expansive area consistently adapts to the ever-changing contours of a horse's back due to the tree's twisting capability and the exceptional Flair air flocking system in the panels, which moulds and conforms to the horse's back shape without equal.
THE FEATURES THAT SET US APART FROM THE REST
The worlds first modular saddle! This allows the rider to mix and match seat and flap designs and the horse to have a choice of panels, head-plates and tree curvatures to suit its conformation.
This means that, for the very first time, you can buy and own a single saddle and with the necessary adaptations, it will see you through from breaking in, to retiring your horse!
At the heart of WOW is its exclusive tree. Uniquely engineered to be rigid longitudinally (front to back) whilst being able to twist and move in harmony with your horses shoulders. This unprecedented flexibility facilitates a full range of motion overcoming the limitations posed by traditional trees. The 2023 tree is our most flexible yet, delivering unparalleled results for your horse's comfort and performance.
The 2023 tree requires a mere fraction of the pressure to flex laterally compared to any other tree we have crafted before, delivering mind-blowing results!
We have created a gauge that will reproduce every single possible fitting permutation for the WOW range of saddles, which adds up to staggering 567 combinations! Furthermore, the gauge can tell you the bearing surface size and length for your horse and even gives an indication as to what type of girthing you would require.
Anyone can follow our tutorial and use the WOW gauge, whether you are a new customer who does not have access to a local WOW fitter, or an existing customer who wants to check their current fitting. The gauge will tell you if the current specification is correct. If it says it does not fit, then the gauge can used to work out the correct specification so that it does.
WOW Saddles takes rider comfort to the next level with the narrowest twist on the market. This makes it easier for the rider to wrap their leg around the horse, enhancing control and connection. Our seats offer a variety of comfort options, including Coccyx relief. Wow has three positions to place a stirrup leather so that the optimum placement and balance for the rider can be achieved.
The 2023 tree features an adjustable seat that accommodates rider asymmetry. Our innovative "Paddle" shim corrects alignment under the rider's seat bone, providing a straight and balanced seat. This unique patented design promotes a true three-point seat, combating rider bad habits and preventing the asymmetry that can affect a horse's musculature.
Flair the “Air flocking system”, launched in 1998 and still unmatched today.
Tested against various flocking methods, Flair excels in pressure testing and gait analysis. Not only is it the optimal choice for horse-rider comfort, but it's also the only flocking that can be adjusted with the rider mounted.
Experience instant changes felt by both horse and rider as the saddle is fine-tuned to offer ultimate comfort and support.
The supportive area provided by the panel (surpassing even Western saddles in square inches) ensures lower and superior pressure on the horse's musculature.
The panels incorporate a reinforced extension of the tree within them. This allows the seat twist to suit the rider and the panels' channel to cater to the horse.
With 144 different designs in each size, WOW's panels
accommodate every rider-horse combination imaginable – from small riders on big horses, to challenging conformations.
