Nickers Saddlery Ltd.
Sensation Ride ™ Sonoran
The Sonoran model offers the best of both worlds from the western and the English styles of saddles, but with additional leg-steadying flap lines - like the formal dressage. The long 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 Sonoran is available only with the formal flap lines. These flap lines differentiate it from the hybrid.
The seat on the Sonoran offers a rider a roomy, relatively flat & open cushioned zone, that is unless the seat is contoured with a bolster. The knee roll is substantial 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 Sonoran can be made with the dressage cantle, hybrid cantle, western cantle, tall western cantle or removable cantle! Swell choices are Hybrid, Western or Tall Western. The default choice for the Sonoran is tall western swell and cantle.
Some other options include: 2" (5cm) wide stirrup leathers, rear rigging "D", added hardware, no-bite fenders, cheyenne roll, hook receptive underside, removable rigging and more!
