Purchased new in 2016 and never used.
The Orleans dressage saddle has a deep seat with a narrow twist, soft leather flaps and a good size knee block.
A medium fit and a high pommel this saddle will be best suited to a high wither. The panels are wool flocked and up swept at the rear, this frees up the lumbar region and aids with fitting a shorter back.
Phillippe Fontaine saddles are distributed by Stubben
