“The Elegance is the ultimate choice of Dressage Saddle and has been developed to maximize the comfort for the horse, while assisting the rider to achieve perfect balance, close contact and harmony. The Elegance Dressage offers all the key features needed to compete at world class level. Based on a specially designed tree, the Elegance gives good clearance of the withers and is open to allow free movement of the shoulder and spine. This, together with the new special panel system, enables the rider to have excellent close contact with the horse. A narrow waist and carefully angled tree, combined with an extra soft deep seat and extended stirrup bars places the rider in an upright position and allows balanced seat pressure to drive the horse and enable the rider to have the finest control. The Frank Baines custom manufacturing facility gives the rider the option to alter the balance points from forward to centre, while a V girthing arrangement minimizes movement. Optional sizes of knee blocks and a choice of three different flap lengths to suit varying leg lengths allows the rider to select a saddle that best fits them as well as the horse.”
