More about Soft Touch System.
STS stands for Soft Touch System, which is designed by Busse. The middle of each panel contains a pressure-stable-layer. Underneath this layer towards the horses back are two different specialty foams, the one closest to the horse provides a wide, soft and even contact area of the saddle on the horse.
The intermediate layer has a weight-carrying function and helps to absorb pressure from above and distribute it evenly. It represents the perfect combination of comfort, balance and good contact. It has an extra deep seat that grants an exceptional contact between the horse and the rider.
