This saddle features surface-mounted knee blocks which are contoured to provide enhanced in-saddle security for the rider without restriction of the knees. The dressage specific tree is designed to help you perfect your dressage seat, making schooling and competing more satisfying. The quality leather seat and knee pads give the feel of riding on an all leather saddle without the expense. The low profile panel is wool flocked and offers closer rider contact and remarkable saddle stability, while the open-headed tree is suited to a wide variety of conformations. There are three girthing options which enable the saddle to be girthed according to the horse’s movement.
