The new Buttera Maxxi has even more security than the standard Buttera because it's got a 4cm higher cantle. This saddle looks like the saddle knights used for jousting! It's available as either a regular Ghost/Cavallin saddle or a Bareback Pad. Materials are limited to suede (ask for color ranges) and Lorica or nubuck for an extra cost. The stitching pattern is slightly different than the Buttera as well - shown in the first two pics (the others are the standard Buttera to show color options).
Note - the deep seat has a slightly smaller feel, so you may need to consider going up a size.
If you're not getting any younger (check) joints getting a bit creaky (check) or simply the owner of a very silly horse with an overdeveloped sense of humour (check, check, check) then this saddle is for you.
It is the most secure saddle I have ever sat on, or rather in, as it embraces you like an armchair. If your beloved equine slams on the brakes because a stone has moved since the last time you rode this path - no problem. If he/she goes from 0-30 due to a pheasant ambush, again, no problem, you are held by the large pommel in front and the high cantle behind.
I truly believe it to be the most secure saddle on the market today and am delighted to own one.
