The Carlton takes a step up from the Classic with the addition of a gullet plus a bit of a twist. These additions assist the rider with proper positioning, thus making it a good starter or youth saddle. For those horses that enjoy the feel of the Classic's flat underside, the Carlton comes standard with a removable gullet pillow. When the pillow is in place, the underside of the Carlton will feel "pad-like" similar to the feel of the Classic. In addition to the gullet pillow, the Carlton also has adjustable knee rolls, shoulder columns and rear thigh blocks.
- Classical dressage
- Trail riding and flatwork
- Low-level jumping
Carole and Don,
Take care both of you and have a great summer!
I've had a Classic (no gullet) for two years and a Carlton (with gullet) for 6 months. My horse goes equally well in both and his back is in great shape.
My opinionated FEI horse likes it. He loves his Classic so I was thrilled that he moved as well in the Carlton. Is every FEI horse a princess? LOL
