Although this is a less well-known make of English dressage saddle in the USA, it is nevertheless a beautifully designed, extremely comfortable and high quality dressage saddle – custom made by Master Saddlers. (See Equinefit notes below). This lovely saddle has a 19ins seat and a medium width fitting, which we measured to be 5ins at the level of the D rings inside the mouth of the gullet. The drop on the saddle flaps is 16.75ins from the stirrup bar. The stirrup bar is the famous Welep stirrup bar, which allows the rider to adjust the stirrup leather positioning.
“All Equinefit saddles are made to measure by master saddlers. Each saddle is custom worked to the rider’s and horse’s requirements which encompass vital issues such as work program, conformation (of course), but also veterinary issues, etc. The saddle panels, length of flap, girth billets and seat are carefully measured and they offer a wide range of leathers and colors. Equinefit uses only the highest quality materials – English leather and pure wool flock. The spring trees are ply-bonded wood and steel, allowing maximum movement with the horse, whilst providing lasting strength and durability. Every detail of the saddle is cut by hand and prepared by master saddlers, and even the tree is specially constructed, which allows the rider to choose a deeper or more open seat”.
