Absolutely stunning dressage saddle from equine saddle specialist, George Gullikson. This lovely used saddle is in great condition and has an 18ins seat with a wide fitting, which we have measured to be 5.5ins.
George Gullikson – designer of this exquisite saddle – is arguably one of the country’s leading equine biomechanical ‘engineers’ who has devoted his time and experience to designing saddles to fit horse and rider correctly. He has worked closely with Frank Baines Saddlery in the UK to achieve the highest standards in saddle ergonomics. In this Aires de Haute dressage saddle, the spring Tree can be adjusted by qualified saddler for exact fit. It features wool flocked panels, adjustable Velcro blocks, adjustable WELLEP stirrup bars which allow the rider to position his/her legs correctly and with maximum comfort. This particular Aires de Haute dressage saddle measures 18ins in the seat, and we measured the tree to be wide at 5.5ins. The gullet is very generous with a 3.25ins channel – thus allowing the panels to sit on the horse’s latissimus dorsi fairly and squarely. Saddle flaps are 15.5ins and integral to the very well thought out design are Wellep stirrup bars which allows the rider to correctly position stirrup leathers.
