In excellent used condition, this is a lovely, comfortable, well designed dressage saddle by Equine Biomechanic Specialist, George Gullikson. George is one of the country’s leading saddle specialists, having had an extensive engineering and equestrian background. He collaborated with British saddlers – Frank Baines, who actually make the saddles in Walsall, England.
This particular Aires de Haute dressage saddle has a 17ins seat and we measured the width fitting to be 5ins which we consider to be medium to medium/wide. The length of the saddle flaps is 15ins, which is an inch or so short of regular. Note the Wellep stirrup bars which allows for stirrup leather positioning for the rider.
