    Alaise Close Contact

     

    Handcrafted in England by Joseph Sterling & Sons using the finest Sedgwick leather and designed in collaboration with some of the country's leading professional hunt seat riders, the Alaise combines classic style and tradition with unique modern features and sheer comfort.

    Carefully tapered panels, two girth billets instead of three and the flattest rigging possible provide exceptionally close contact. The padded seat and extra stuffed knee rolls are covered in soft calf leather while the flaps and skirts feature soft and durable buffalo leather.

    The regular width tree is designed for total equine comfort to fit the widest range of withers and backs. It is built from spring steel and comes with a lifetime warranty.

    Custom flaps and trees are available through special order.

    A'l'aise means comfortable. Enough said.

    Sizes: 16", 16 1/2", 17" or 17 1/2"

            A:

            They are going to have two distinct looks.
            Dark Havana vs. Tradional Brown.
            Buffalo has a very textured surface which creates grip.
            Grained Flap is finer and will get softer after use.
            Both have grippy Knee Rolls.
            They both last as long as eachother.
            Seat of Baffalo Flap is like a suede.
            Seat of Grained Flap in grippy Calfskin.
            10 Day trial period – so no buyers remorse!
