The Zilco Classic Sliding Backband saddle is designed for use with two wheeled vehicles or for wheeled vehicles with rigid fixed shafts. The unique design of the Zilco saddle tree and use of special terrets, allows the backband to slide freely. This has a self-balancing effect on the shafts to give a more comfortable ride for both horse and passengers.
Pony Width 100 mm (4″)

The backband can be locked into position when free movement is not required (when using a different vehicle with independent shafts). This is done via a neat conway buckle (ZC980907), which sits below the terret on each side of the backband to restrict the sliding movement as shown below.
