EDIX Signor Bareback Pad

It's time for the EDIX saddles & bitless bridles Signor impression pad test results!

The facts... - The Signor - rider is myself (approximately 5'2 and 140 lbs), horse is Uno - Walk, trot, canter, and lateral work - LAYERED INLAYS: 3 mesh on horse side, felt on rider side - Top of the impression pad test picture is front of the saddle, left panel is left side of saddle, right panel is right side of saddle.

The Signor is a fully integrated bareback pad and saddle pad, so there isn't a way to test the seat separately from the pad.

The second picture is the impression pad after a ride with it between the horse and the pad. You can see excellent weight distribution with slight deviation over the wither. This is further forward than the billets and iron/stirrup ring.

Third picture shows Uno's back after the ride. You can see a clear spinal channel on his back, so I don't think the deviation we see on the impression pad is truly a pressure point. This has happened a few times now with different saddles, so I think that when there is pressure pushing down on the panels of the impression pad, the panels slide down the horse's sides and it creates what looks like could be pressure points but sweat patterns show otherwise.

The Signor is my favorite thing to ride in of everything I've tried. It feels soft, secure and very stable. To my knowledge, this is the first product that EDIX thought to layer the 3 mesh with felt and WOW is it genius! The asymmetrical horses that I ride regularly feel symmetrical in this pad, I think because the 3 mesh adapts so incredibly to their shape. I have since used the layering of 3 mesh and felt in a saddle pad with the TCS as well as some customer horses with significant asymmetries with powerful results. I now highly recommend layering the 3 mesh and felt for all treeless saddles that don't have built in spinal clearance. Every horse I've ridden in the Signor goes their absolute best. In my opinion, the Signor has more of a waist/twist than a typical bareback pad, but certainly less than a more structured treeless saddle.
