"I love my two BUTET Premium Saddles," George Morris said. "This new exercise saddle is half way between riding without stirrups and riding bareback. We all grew up riding bareback, and this is as close to riding bareback as you'll get in a saddle."
BUTET offers advanced designed capabilities combined with the finest materials and top French craftsmanship, which appeals to anyone who can only accept the absolute best.
The BUTET Practice is the ultimate educational tool for teaching riders of every level correct position and correct balance in the saddle. With its ergonomic shape and its technical characteristics, the BUTET Practice saddle immediately allows the rider to intuitively find the "right" riding position.
Morris added, "I think it would fit into anyone's line of equipment. It perfects your seat immediately."
The Practice also offers the horse a full freedom of movement and is as close contact as is it gets. It is used by top trainers in the United States and in Europe to help their students understand and promote the fundamentals of maintaining proper balance and building their core strength.
"This is not a gimmick," Morris concluded. "This saddle brings you the true natural balance which we are all looking for!"
Yogi Breisner, the Great Britain Eventing Performance Manager & Lead for World Class Programme Coach Development, said, "It's an excellent coach's tool! I immediately felt I was in natural balance, so I can see how the saddle would really help develop an independent seat and lower leg security. I really enjoyed jumping in it and would love to try it cross country!"
New Zealand Olympic Team Rider, Andrew Nicholson, shared his thoughts on the innovative design commenting, "Human beings have a desire to find their own natural balance. The Practice allows riders to achieve this without restriction."
Lars Sederholm, world-renowned trainer added, "It took one lesson in the saddle to get my pupil to feel what I had been explaining for months. I want one!"
The BUTET saddle is handcrafted in France / Saumur with the finest leather. All BUTET Practice saddles are custom-made for the rider and for the horse. It's supplied with a custom girth and saddle cover. ===> Courtesy of Phelps Media Group
