All Ghost saddles have the same base. This base is completed with panels and a seat. The base and panels determine the fitting to your horse, the seat changes the looks and gives support to the rider. The bases are available in 3 sizes: Standard, Piccolo and Bambini. It is easy to switch seats. Your saddle can change from a dressage model into a saddle for hacking in minutes. There are many different seats to choose from, ask your dealer for advice.

For thousands of years, people rode bareback or used lambskin or wool blankets. Treed saddles weren't common until the middle ages, when horses went to battle with knights sitting tight in saddles with high fronts and rears, to prevent being tipped out of the saddle by a lance. Early nomads rode for days on their treeless saddles, 2 cushions on both sides of the spine, held together with leather straps and covered by decorative saddle covers.
Ghost saddles are a modern version of these ancient saddles
Attached a few pictures of these early saddles found in tombs in central Eurasia. These saddles date from approximately 300 BC.
The seats can be made from numerous types of leather and synthetic material. GHOST is always searching for new material. We will try to show you some of the possibilities. Pictures will always be different from the real product, also because leather is a product of nature.
