Our dressage saddle, Debonaire, is elegantly designed for a classic look as well as a comfortable fit. Imagine heading down centerline in immaculate comfort and connection. Feeling the most subtle of movements has never been so easy while mounted in a saddle. Our billets are ergonomically placed to maximize movement of the horse but, minimize movement of the saddle. The panels are always wool flocked, the gullet set to your horses needs, and the tree selected for both horse and rider. Our seat is exceptionally comfortable without being over padded. The mono flap design is strategically crafted for a close contact feel with comfort. We made the rolls long and wide to promote a relaxed, correct position. Traditionally made with a deep seat, draped in traditional black calfskin leather, and non-contrast stitching. Buyers have the choice to customize stitching, binding, flap length (15” or 16”), seat size, as well as logo style (embossed or sewn). Please contact for additional details and options.
