Made in England on a traditional wooden spring tree, with all the extra design features the Harry Dabbs premium Platinum range offers.  


The Performance panel is wool flocked and designed to leave the back sooner keeping the lumbar region free enabling the horse to move more freely and perfect for short backed horses. 

The Future panel will also help free up the shoulder as it allows for better shoulder rotation.  

An XW fit, with a nice wide channel.  

Finished with the finest Italian calf leather chosen for its strength, comfort and looks.


Three girth points each side for multiple girthing options (only use the two that best suit the horse conformation). 


The seat is deep, stamped 17 but measures and feels smaller.


Made in 2016, In near new condition

Includes harry Dabbs fleece cover
