Buttera

Looking for a deep seat? Fabulous security? The new Buttera is 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. Note - the deep seat has a slightly smaller feel, so you may need to consider going up a size.

Buttera Maxxi

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.
Customer comment!
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.

Buttera Vittorio

The Vittorio is based upon the Buttera design but made for very young children who aren't ready for a regular saddle and need additional balance support. The seat is 25cm or 10" and suitable for kids up to 6yo or so.
Materials are limited to suede (ask for color ranges) and Lorica as these can follow the extreme curves and are grippy for additional security.
