Nickers Saddlery Ltd.
Sensation Ride ™ Western Sport
The Western Sport model Sensation meets the needs of the rider who wants the western “feel” – The Fenders on the Sensation Western models are moveable up and down on the 2” wide nylon leathers, offering the ability to change them to optimum placement for each rider.
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. An extra set of lower front rings allows the option for use with a Western style breastplate.
This model is designed with the sporty, minimalistic western rider in mind. It offers a secure, deep seat feeling very similar to the shape of a traditional western saddle, only much more comfortable! The fenders are stylized to reflect a western flair, and the seat and skirting is designed to uphold traditional western looks while minimizing coverage and weight.
While the Rear jockeys (skirting) is longer than the English models, the actual weight bearing surface is identical at 19”, allowing even the shortest backed horse the ability to use the Western Sport in comfort.
Standard sizes available for this model are 14.5″ to 16.5″
