Wonderful hybrid saddle. An innovative feature of the Echo is the ADJUSTABLE CANTLE on the smaller sized (Size 0/1) saddle, which allows you to scoot the cantle forward or back depending on rider size! As on all Black Forest saddles, the pommel adjusts to a variety of wither shapes. This is the perfect saddle for growing children or for lesson programs with varying riders and horses. Shasta Echo is available in black, in an adjustable size 0-1 for children to small adults,  size 2  and size 3.  (The adjustable cantle is only available on the size 0/1)

Note: Do not use synthetic ‘Weber’-type leathers on Shasta Echo as they can be abrasive. We recommend our Black Forest leathers or our synthetic leathers or sheepskin covers.                                                      Note: This synthetic saddle is also not intended for excessive endurance riding or more experienced trail riders. This saddle is a light duty saddle. Please refer to a leather saddle instead.
