A dressage saddle is designed specifically for use in dressage, a form of riding described as the highest expression of horse training in which the horse and rider perform a series of predetermined movements. There is a high level of scrutiny involved in dressage which makes finding the right saddle very important.
The idea behind a dressage saddle is to keep the horse and rider in close contact to allow for precision moves as well as to provide the rider with a seat that keeps their posture perpendicular to the ground. To achieve this, the saddle seat has a deep U-shaped curve which gives the rider good balance and the saddle flaps are long, straight and made with thin, lightweight material.

There are a number of things to consider when selecting a new saddle such as the brand, material, design and size. You need to make sure that the saddle is a good fit for both you and your horse. Using a saddle that doesn’t fit well can lead to an uncomfortable ride and can cause harm to your horse if too much pressure is focused in the wrong spots.
We strongly advise that you have a master saddler from the equestrian shop measure your horse and that you inform them which disciplines the horse will be taking part in. This is so they can help you find the right fit for your horse.
