Get into the saddle with Tacante!

You’ve just bought your first Tacante saddle cloth?
Unlike classic saddle cloths, the cut of Tacante saddle cloth has been designed to free the withers. This different cut giving full clearance over the withers therefore requires a few adjustments.
The ergonomic girth slot is designed for an optimal fit of the saddle on the back of the horse and a good adherence of the saddle cloth reducing slippage while riding. The saddle cloth needs to be placed so the girth straps find their natural position in the girth slot.
