Julie Goodnight Cascade Crossover Trail Saddle, Wide Tree, Walnut

"We cut away as much as we could from the saddle making it one of the closest contact saddles I've ever ridden. It is the closest thing you can get to riding bareback, but still, have the comfort and security of a saddle with a tree. Over the years I've had many people tell me that the weight of the saddle is their number one concern, so I wanted to design a saddle with those riders in mind. Hucking a heavy saddle up to the back of a big horse is a challenge. With the Crossover, I can do it with one hand!" -Julie Goodnight
The Peak Performance saddle line is designed and ridden by Julie Goodnight. She is a trainer, clinician, host of the TV show Horse Master with Julie Goodnight, and she is on the Advisory Board of the Western Dressage Association of America. Drawing from her varied background in English and Western riding and her strong upbringing in classical riding, Goodnight recognizes that regardless of discipline a balanced position for the rider and fit for the horse are fundamental.
The Flex2 tree technology conforms to the horse's back while providing rider weight distribution and is lightweight. Flex2 skirts have a shock-absorbing neoprene filler for the horse and rider's comfort and impact foam seat with narrow twist and a broad pocket for all-day comfort. ErgoBalance stirrups and pre-twisted stirrup leathers reduce knee and ankle fatigue while promoting balance.
