Ghost Cavallin Crusader $1,760
The Crusader has a hidden pommel and is an excellent choice for those who like the look and feel of Sensation treeless style saddles.
With a choice of knee blocks, your options include large knee blocks or small knee blocks (angle adjustable with velcro attachment) or a choice of a flat, smooth leather covering the velcro. Saddles come standard with one choice of blocks, additional blocks are $60 a pair.
You can order fixed blocks too, as seen in the Black Crusader last picture.
The design and features of the Ghost Cavallin range will delight lovers of treeless saddles. Adjustable stirrup straps attach to a velcro pad that can be moved backwards or forwards under the saddle seat in order for the rider to find the most comfortable position for their riding style. In order to further protect the horse's back during heavier stirrup use or riding in a two point seat, the stirrup straps have the option of being attached to buckles at the bottom of the saddle flaps, thereby spreading the load between two areas.
The Girthing attachment is fixed, and beds the saddle down to offer wonderful stability and a low profile. Where as the Ghost Saddles have a lovely feeling of almost 'floating' the Ghost Cavallin Saddles offer a rock solid girthing attachment, which make the saddles feel even more close contact and low profiled.
All Cavallin Ghost saddles have a narrow twist that is extremely comfortable for the rider and gives more of a 'treed' feel, although with a much softer seat! A narrow twist allows the hips to drop down in a great position, and relieving hip, back and knee pain. Extensive testing of the saddles has so far proven them to be very laterally stable, often a problem with treeless.
The comfort of the horse is paramount and to this end, both saddles have thick adjustable panels to lift the saddle off the spine and provide wither clearance.

Way back in the year 1990, Camillo Cavallin acquired his name as one of the original designers of the modern-day treeless saddles, including the Torsion saddles. From the start, Camillo made it his mission to turn an ancient principal into contemporary saddles that put the comfort and welfare of horse and rider first. Over the years, his continuous research and development of the highly acclaimed GHOST saddles earned him a remarkable reputation. Still the leading light at GHOST, he has now dedicated his name to his personal twenty-first century brand of treeless saddles; the CAVALLIN range.
