EDIX®: Ensuring Protection & Comfort for Your Horse

An EDIX® treeless saddle offers your horse optimum pressure distribution using the special layers of flexible materials: EDIX® MPDS, multiple pressure distribution system (see drawing). These soft, flexible layers adapt to the anatomy of the horse, as well as the rider’s posture. An EDIX® treeless saddle optimally reacts to the movements of the horse. Partly due to this, the rider learns to adapt to the horse’s movements and, as such, develops an independent position. As a result, the movements of the horse and rider become one, and from there, excellent communication is created. Because the horse is moving much more freely, it has the possibility to develop optimally, which is often shown by an increase in muscle mass. Due to the above and after the habituation period, both horse and rider, show in all aspect of horse riding more relaxation and a more fluid movement.

The pommel is made of fiberglass and the cantle of a soft high density foam. Both connect the left and right half of the saddle and together offer stability to the saddle and comfort for the rider. Due to the saddle’s special construction there is a freedom of movement for the spine.

The VIKA Saddle

  • Special structure, the EDIX® MPDS (multi-pressure distributions system)
  • Instead of foam there is a heavy felt in the EDIX® MPDS
  • Knits and seat are provided with a synthetic fabric with a suede look.
  • Synthetic construction underlay equipped with neoprene pressure -distributing anti-slip layer
  • rings for attaching a chest and / or saddle bag

 

The EDIX® Vika all-round saddle can be combined with the EDIX® saddlebags and breastplate, for which various rings have been fitted The EDIX® anatomical soft leather padded elastic girth and the fully elastic girth of F.R.A. are optional but their elasticity ensure a rock-solid fixation of your saddle and freedom for the horse to expand his belly.

In order to ensure constant firm fixation, we recommend a fully or partly elastic girth for a consistently fixed position. A durable elasticity tailored to your horse’s strength, which will save your saddle from undesirable forces that are caused by the varying abdominal circumference of your horse while riding. The elastic of the girth always adjusts itself in length and has the possibility to keep the saddle in place with constant tension. Besides the EDIX® anatomical soft leather padded elastic girth we also offer the fully elastic girth of F.R.A.

EDIX VIKA Child Saddle Treeless

Our Review of the VIKA Saddle

  • This saddle is designed with a treeless gullet (no fixed structure) providing spinal clearance. This structure may ‘bed in’ over time with use, however from our own testing we still have a gap and clearance in riding our own horses several months later. The use of the EDIX® pads is incredibly supportive to ensure spinal clearance, and if these become worn, they can be replaced, ensuring you always have the opportunity to maintain spinal clearance.
  • The suede look fabric on the seat provides extra stability when riding and I found it very comfortable – also adds a nice finish.
  • Being able to change from English to Western pommel is really useful. Add to your purchase anytime with a set of English or Western accessories and you have 2 saddles in 1 for a very reasonable price.
  • For riders accustomed to riding bareback, you may not require the knee rolls, but if your previous saddle had a knee roll I would recommend adding the pocket and roll as a custom order.
  • The high cantle supports me in a correct position, perfect for hacking and flat work. If you’re looking for a regular jumping saddle, I would recommend upgrading to the Courville to have the changeable cantle (high and low) and upgrade to include kneerolls.
  • Soft Pommel recommended for high withered horses – available to purchase with, separately or included in the fit kit.
  • Excellent combination of quality, versatility and value for money.
  • Perfect for those starting their treeless journey!
