Devoucoux Ioldy

What a great combination this saddle is – beautiful, elegant, and durable – the Devoucoux Ioldy is the definitive saddle for cross country endurance events. It’s a comfortable saddle for jumping because the oversized external blocks provides extra support for the rider as well as additional safety for the most challenging streams, hills, and fences. This model is one of the most popular saddles for many champion riders and is has proven to be a durable, reliable, and comfortable saddle that allows the rider to maintain that critical communication and contact with their horse.

Balance is essential for the rider’s safety and the movement of the horse, and the Devoucoux Ioldy is designed with exceptional balance. The seat is elongated and flattened which allows extra comfort for the rider and additional room for movement. The knee rolls contain extra padding that extends extra comfort to the legs for the longer cross country rides. This is a single flap design and it has modern webbing that is unique in the industry. The luxurious calfskin leather is supple, durable, and will remain in exceptional condition for many years to come.

In general the Devoucoux Ioldy saddle is made with a slightly wider tree; however, you may find used custom build saddles by one of Devoucoux’s expert saddlers. With the variety of obstacles that are included in the cross country exercises and trials, this saddle will ensure both the rider and the horse have the freedom of movement that is necessary for excellent performance and safety.

    I’ve tried this saddle before and it drove me nuts! It was really forward and felt awkward to ride and jump in.

    Although the Ioldy has an extremely forward flap, the Ioldy has an enlongated balance point which lets you “scoot” around more, for lack of better words. I find that jumping off a drop, the Ioldy is much easier to get in the back seat. I also found that flatting in the Ioldy was fine with me, too, but I have a very long thigh and short calf, and I find that I do better with balance points that are slightly behind the motion of the horse.
