Information about the Australian Saddle
The Australian is probably the least known of the three big saddles - Westerns, English and Australians. The Australian treeddle is, however, an outstanding option for trails, stamina or ranching. Australian saddles began their rise to fame in the United States with the publication of the film âThe Man from Snowy Riverâ in 1982.
In Australia, this fantastic movie plays with some of the best horse scenery you'll ever see, and all the equestrian work is done on Australian saddles. In 1788, when the English colonized Australia, they took along saddles, saddle and similar gear. Soon the new colonists realised that Australia was very different from their home country and began to change the look of their gear to better match the rugged, unyielding and isolated area.
You needed a seat that was comfy while you worked for a long time on the back of a saddle, both for the horseman and for the equine. It had to be sturdy enough to withstand the rigors of use, but still lightweight and lightweight. Settingtlers took the simple British yoke and made it more stable in order to withstand the hard work of livestock farming in difficult terrains.
But the most drastic shift was the adding of so-called Poley's or knee pads at the front of the back. They are the simplest way to differentiate Australian saddles from other saddles. When it comes to holding the horseman safely when climbing up and down any kind of gradient or when the horseman is moving quickly, the Poley shows its real value.
With the Poley's, the horseman can move his thigh forward and latch himself in the seat. High-efficiency but single twin belt is used to secure an Australian seat to the horses. Truncheon belts (which are sewed onto the saddle) and the overbirth (a belt that goes over the saddle) both close directly onto the belt.
The dual system allows the trainer to belt the seat more efficiently, preventing it from slipping. If a stick band breaks, the overbirth provides extra security. The Australian saddles are more on the back of a stallion than conventional westernsaddles and the stirrup is placed in a front one. It is designed to be more convenient for most stallions and improve the horse's efficiency.
The majority of Australians find that the Australian seating posture is also more pleasant for the driver. A lot of horsemen who have kneeling difficulties with British and West saddles have no problem with Australian saddles. Stirrups are attached to the stirrups on the girder and are constructed in such a way that they can be easily released by pushing them back.
In most cases, when a horse falls and is pulled, the stirrups detach from the backgauge, which reduces the danger of injuries. Usually Australian saddles are made of timber and iron, fibreglass or polyurethan. The spring-loaded seating system ensures an outstanding drive in timber and stainless steels.
Sitting on a strap hanging over the boom, not on the boom itself. A number of wooden and steely beams can also be adapted (with specific equipment) to almost any type of equid. Moulded polyurethanes offer highest strength, structural stability and low density. The Aussie is very spacious, with 2 inch in most areas and offers great riding comforts.
Upholstery also provides an additional pillow for the driver. The Australian nut is a nut that has developed to offer both riders and horses the best possible value. His capacity to adapt to the form of the equestrian and to keep the horseman comfortably and safely, has proved itself for almost 200 years on the hardest, dryest and most unyielding continents of the world â" Australia.
