What is a driving saddle?
A driving or harness saddle is an element of horse harness which supports the weight of shafts or poles attaching a vehicle to a horse. Like other types of saddle, it lies on the horse's back directly behine the withers and often has an internal supportive framework known as the tree. The driving saddle is usually secured on either side by a girth passing beneath the horse. Unlike a riding saddle, it is an integral part of the driving harness and is not used as stand-alone equipment.
A driving saddle may come with a fixed or sliding backband. It is vital that fixed shafts, as in a two wheeled vehicle, are only ever used with a sliding backband. Conversely a vehicle with independent shafts, as in many four wheeled vehicles, must only be used with a fixed backband.
