Hermes Cavale saddle unveiled at Saut Hermès 2013, Paris

Horse riding is often considered a luxury. And do you know when it takes a turn to extravagance? From the sport itself to grooming, every aspect of horse riding to its saddle flaunts extravagance. We’ve seen such rich indulgence through the Limited Edition Centennial saddle and the Talaris saddle. Hermes took this tale forward at the recently held Saut Hermes competition at the Grand Palais, Paris, where the unveiling of Hermes Cavale, yet another exquisite piece from the house of Hermes, took place. Horse merchandise is launched in conjunction with their partner – rider Simon Delestre. The new entrant is specifically positioned at expert riders as a jumping saddle, a high-end concoction of the Hermes DNA to give the perfect feel over fences.

Considering the comfort levels of both the rider and his horse and keeping in mind the aspect of stability, the new Cavale saddle sports a wide gullet, has its panels injected with stuffing, shows off a seamless medium-deep seat and padded flaps incorporated into the top flaps. The saddle is available in two variations: leather and black, which can be further tailored to fit the horse and its rider.
