Revolutionary horse saddle

Spark, a Dutch design and innovation company, has created what it calls a "revolutionary" horse saddle. Why revolutionary? The saddle, called Unite, can actually be fitted by the rider to the contours of the horse's back! So if the saddle fits....

... the rider's weight is more evenly distributed and the horse will have fewer back injuries -- injuries that often result from a disproportionate amount of saddle and rider weight in places where the saddle does have contact with the horse.
