The SMARTFLEX™ uniquely shaped tree with flexible bars and groundseat allows the rider to feel close to the horse’s body and its movement beneath while perfectly secure on balance point. The CLASSIC NATURAL RIDER JUNIOR, like any Parelli saddle, provides confidence that the horse can enjoy the ride, too.

The CLASSIC NATURAL RIDER JUNIOR is available in Standard (STD) and Superwide (SW) gullet widths (see details below).
Best value in combination with our SmartSaddlePad Collection.

SMARTFLX™ TECHNOLOGY
  • Pommel: “A -fork” (aka “slick fork”) shape with a slight forward lean, no swells, a low profile 2” horn and shallow gullet (CAUTION: If your horse has very high, narrow withers, this fork may be too low). Cantle: 3” tall with moderately open “dish” that hugs rider without trapping. 1.5” Cheyenne roll
  • Leather and color: Quality veg-tanned leather hides. Color: Mahogany
  • Seat: 3-Qtr “grippy soft” padded textured leather for seat and buckrolls. Seat pocket security is deeper than NATURAL PERFORMER due to some "build up" in front area of the seat. Color: Black
  • Underside: durable, resilient Felt
  • Stirrups: Choose 2.5” footbed, leather laced over Visalia shaped plastic or 3” Easy Care molded trail stirrup with leather hood on outside edge
  • Tooling: border pattern is Signature Parelli reflected horse heads on seat jockey
  • Hardware: brass or stainless steel rigging, D's and back cinch roller buckles as shown. Slotted Conchos secured by 6 sets of tie strings.
  • Main cinch rigging: Flat plate, In-skirt
  • Rear cinch rigging: Rear D with leather billets and back cinch includes short cinch hobble for connecting to main cinch. Rear cinch should be buckled snugly for best stabilization of the back of the saddle, and short hobble enables pressure to be located in the horse’s sternum area and not on the soft belly area
  • Free-swinging fenders for optimum rider leg flexibility. 6 leg length sizes available, with numbered adjustment strap holes at 1/2” increments
  • Latigos on both sides for even left/right adjustment. No off-side billet
  • Breast Collar D-rings set high for freedom of shoulder movement
