The GFS Transition Competition Jumping saddle is ideal for the young rider or a small petite adult rider looking for a high performance jumping saddle.
Developed to provide a neat and well proportioned design combined with superb jumping saddle elements perfectly suited to the smaller rider.
Wide and broad saddle panels help with the even distribution of weight and pressure on the horse’s back. This design avoids pressure points and further help to provide the best possible fit for your horse.
A range of gullet plates in different widths allows for further flexibility in fit and ensures that your horse will always benefit from the best possible fit over the wither area.
The carbon fibre webbed tree is slightly flexible. This improves both horse and rider comfort by allowing movement in conjunction with the horse’s back muscles.
In addition the tree design provides a perfectly placed sweet spot, conveniently locating the rider in a neutral position and providing a closer contact to the horse.
- X-change girthing system.

- Flatter and wider panels.
- Luxurious calf skin leather.
- Contoured & adjustable knee and thigh blocks.
- Centre of balance spot.

X-Change Girthing System:
The X-Change girthing points create an easy way to change or replace the girth point strap positioning without the need for stitching.
Polymersynthetic webbed tree:
The Monarch saddle tree is both a light-weight and adjustable tree designed with the horse’s comfort in mind. The reduced weight and slight flexibility in the tree helps the saddle to work in continuity with the horse’s back muscles. In addition each tree is precision engineered with the use of cutting edge CAD design.
Flatter and wider panels:
The GFS Transition range have flatter and wider panels to maximise the weight bearing area and even weight distribution on the horse’s back. This prevents pressure points and ensures optimal comfort for the horse. The panels are flocked with siliconized wool which allows movement and prevents possible bunching which could lead to pressure points.
Luxurious selected leather:
GFS leather has been hand selected to offer maximum comfort and grip.
Contoured moulded knee blocks:
Knee blocks can be customised to suit the rider’s length of leg. The contoured and moulded knee block gives the rider security in the saddle without restriction.
Centre of balance spot:
Thanks to the precision engineering offered by the use of the CAD machine, the saddle developers were able to locate the centre of balance spot at the most optimal position for the rider. This in turn increased the close contact feel of the saddle, instantly improving communication between horse and rider.
X-change gullet system:
The X-change gullet system is great for horses changing shape as often happens with growing youngsters or horses that experience a change in their work regimen or condition. The best wither fit for the horse can be achieved quickly and effectively by simply changing the gullet to the required width.
Siliconized wool flocking:
Siliconized wool flocking allows for movement between the wool fibres. This prevents possible bunching in the flocking and avoids any pressure points forming which might effect the horse’s performance.
