Defiance saddles are made in England, the heart of the worlds saddle making, quality materials and craftmanship. 

Designed for a horse with a broad back and some wither, such as the modern day warmbloods. The wool flocked panels can be adjusted to suit and the gullet is a the most popular size, a generous medium wide.  The panels are very broad especially at the rear so it does need a horse with a broad back. 

The seat is very deep, and feels more like a 17", the knee block is positioned high up to support the thigh but without being restricting. 
New retail price on the Defiance Johanna saddle is $4995. 

Includes original Defiance saddle cover.
