The Philosophy has a unisex tree, revolutionary and structurally innovative, featuring our CPS concept (“COCCYX-PROTECTION-SYSTEM”). The new CPS tree features injected membranes placed via a geometrical formula to best absorb stress and movement on the rider. This concept was conceived to protect the ischia bones, coccyx, and back. The incredible new technology is visible through a flexible Plexiglas window in the gullet of the saddle. The seat is 30% larger near the cantle and it is extremely soft and comfortable, thanks in part to the new membrane. Near the pommel, the tree allows a larger capability for clearance at the withers than other saddles for increased freedom for the withers and the trapezium muscles. Also, the tree points are set back slightly compared to a traditional position to allow the rider to place the saddle further forward without hindering the shoulders. The deep seat and tree allow the rider to be closer to the horse for optimum contact. Thanks to the larger rear part of the saddle tree, the panels have a larger contact surface for better weight distribution and are anatomically shaped to allow freedom of movement for the horse. Innovative blocks follow the anatomy of both horse and rider and are also available in Velcro for optimum performance. The back of the cantle and the gullet feature Damask patterned leather.
