Stylistically accurate jumping and optimal mobility for horse and rider – that’s what you can expect from the Close Contact jumping saddle Portos. Its newly designed and extremely soft seat, combined with its narrow twist and flat panel with short rib, reduces the distance between horse and rider to the absolutely required minimum. This helps both partners to merge into a perfectly matched unit. The full grain, soft leather makes sure that the rider feels at ease from the very beginning. The Portos model, however, is not only highly functional, but also distinguishes itself by its fanciful elegance. Its decorative stitching is an eye catcher. This saddle is particularly recommended for those who fancy a supple and aesthetically pleasing light seat.

BIOMEX saddle seat Technology Stübben has collaborated with the BIOMEX Technology Development Centre of Klinik Gut, a Swiss Hospital for Orthopedics, Accident Care and Sports Medicine based in St. Moritz. Combined with feedback from professional riders, we have developed an innovative saddle seat which promotes correct posture, thus relieving the rider’s back from too much pressure. False posture leads to an increased axial pressure on the back and furthermore to dorsal problems. Riders complain about occasional back pain, i.e. 23.8% experience pain while riding, and 55.2% after riding. The BIOMEX Saddle Seat Technology may help prevent back pain.
Most models of Stübben saddles can be purchased in the de Luxe version. The saddles have an additional, very soft patch of leather on the flaps. This additional coverage, in addition to undoubted aesthetic values and improved comfort, also has a practical function. Thanks to the clear texture and noticeable porosity, which allows for better grip and stabilization of the rider's leg.
