This could possibly have the largest block available on a dressage saddle, this large block combined with the narrow twist and deep seat ensure the rider will feel very secure, riding a big mover or a big buck should be no problem!


The cair panels and easy change gullet make this saddle easily adjustable to suit many types, from wide Andalusions to narrower Thoroughbreds. Its currently fitted with a medium gullet, we can change to suit.


A 2016 model, purchased new in 2020,  still in near new condition.
