Technically, the most important development regarding the new Atena saddles is their new X-technology-based padded panels softness. The saddles have a broader surface so that they adapt more readily to differences in equine conformation. A further innovation, applied for the first time, is the padding pocket inside the panels. The styling has been revolutionized. The tauter lines combined with red stitching and trimming lend the Atena saddles an aggressive racy appeal.
