  •   Ecological tanned calf leather,
  •   Cut away panels and
  •   Outside knee blocks.

The PDS SHOWTIME range is designed to maximize horse and rider performance. The cut away panel is designed for horses with typical dressage horse conformation- longer sloping shoulders and set back withers- to allow freedom of movement to the shoulder of the horse.

The knee block has been placed on the top of the saddle in order to enable the rider to remain secure in the saddle and to sustain a correct and balanced position, especially when experiencing pronounced movement from the horse. These design elements will result in a noticeable increase in the horse’s forward movement and its ability to extend.

Also features a Carbon Fiber XCH™ tree and AMS® synthetic wool flocked panels. The addition of a front gusset in the panel gives clearance over the withers with extra padding in the region of the panel that sits just behind the shoulder, offering extra support where the horse often lacks muscle. AMS® Corto Panels– designed for a more compact type of horse with a well-developed muscular back. The gusset at the back of the saddle is flatter to fit the contours of the horse’s back.

Designed in conjunction with Carl Hester, MBE, Olympic Gold Medalist, the entire PDS Carl Hester Collection is engineered to maximize horse and rider performance. The line is comprised of saddles, girths, stirrup leathers and bridles, all of which were subject to Carl’s input throughout the design process. The result is a perfect union between horse and rider in the saddles, girths that are comfortable on the most sensitive of horses and exquisitely beautiful strap goods.

The PDS Carl Hester Collection features the unbreakable carbon fibre tree, X-Change System and the AMS panel.

The tree interacts with the movement of horse and rider enabling the horse to move freely and giving the rider comfort. The optimum level for the saddle is maintained using the X-Change System and fine tuning by wool placement inside the AMS panels.
