Prestige X Technology – Specifically designed for horse and rider comfort

Prestige XTechnology220

Prestige (Italia) have become world leaders in the manufacture of saddles and riding equipment designed to meet the highest expectations of competitive riders and serious horse trainers in all facets of equestrian sport.

Prestige enjoys international success because of their commitment to producing top quality equestrian equipment which combines the traditional Saddlemaker’s craft, high-tech innovations and the use of quality materials, to deliver optimum performance along with assured comfort for both horse and rider. 

Prestige’s X-Technology is a unique system that offers riders an ultra close contact and feel, with no compromise to the comfort and well-being of the horse. 
Prestige’s R & D experts undertook studies of the human anatomy and carefully considered the comfort and ease of movement of the horse.  The result was X-Technology … a system, which achieves maximum closeness to the horse by making minor adjustments to the tree - and not by resorting to an extreme twist, lengthening the tree supports, or by shifting the centre of gravity to the rear of the seat – all of which can harm the horse.

X-Technology has enabled Prestige to deliver unparalleled closeness between horse and rider by imbedding elastic membranes into the saddletree.  These membranes are filled with a high-tech, shock absorbing material in the seat area which corresponds to the rider’s seat bones.


The models now offered by Prestige with the X-Technology are:

the X-Breath Jumping model, the X-Advanced Eventing model, plus the X-Paris, the X-Meredith, the X-Michel Robert Anniversary, the X-Helen Dressage (pictured right) and the D1 X-ZERO Dressage.
