The Hybrid model offers the best of both worlds from the western and the English styles of saddles. The knee roll and knee blocks combine to offer great support of the knee and upper thigh, while the western feel to the seat ensures a secure feeling.
Swell choices include a "swommel", hybrid swell, western swell or tall western swell, each option gives the saddle a certain "feel". The flap on the Hybrid is available standard as a dressage shaped flap designed for a longer leg position, or can be paired with an English Trail flap, for a more forward knee allowance.
The seat on the Hybrid offers a rider a roomy, relatively flat & open cushioned zone, that is unless the seat is contoured with a bolster. The knee roll is average to full with a removable knee block attached under the knee roll.
Rings located at the rear and sides of the seats create attachment areas for cantle packs or water bottle holders for convenience on the trail. Front rings are for attaching a breastplate and carry handle.
Available in various choices of smooth to grippy leathers – check with Nickers or your dealer for the latest offerings. Hardware choices are Stainless steel or solid brass.
The hybrid can be made with the dressage cantle, hybrid cantle, western cantle or removable cantle! Swell choices are Hybrid, Western or Tall Western.
Some other options include: 2" (5cm) wide stirrup leathers, Western seat topper, rear rigging "D", added hardware, no-bite fenders, western fenders, cheyenne roll, Hook/loop receptive underside, removable rigging and more!
