Horses jump obstacles by nature, but everything changes when ridden by a rider. In a show jumping, the complicity between the two must be perfect and the absolute concentration, because a great effort is needed in a short period of time: intensity, agility and control are indeed fundamental to complete the course without penalties.

The saddle also plays a fundamental role: all jumping saddles at Equitack have been designed to achieve maximum performance while ensuring absolute well-being and allowing freedom of movement on the horse's shoulders. The front and rear cleats, on the other hand, are designed to allow the rider to maintain a balanced and safe position, while the choice to use the calfskin is the guarantee of a good grip to stay in position.
