In excellent condition, this is a carefully maintained Trustin dressage saddle with cover. It has an 18.5ins seat with a medium to medium/wide width fitting, which we measured to be 5ins. The drop on the saddle flaps is a fraction under regular – measured 15.75ins from the stirrup bar. Semi monoflap design (see pics).
The saddle features a strong Velcro panel under the flaps to adhere the flaps to the skirt, thus offering the rider a very close contact and almost monoflap saddle feel. Three point adjustable girthing system which stabilizes the saddle both at the front and the back. It is a custom made dressage saddle in top quality black leathers with the featured ‘free shoulder’ panels, ergonomically designed for the free movement of the horse’s shoulder. Generous 3ins wide gullet channel.
Trustin saddles are made in England exclusively for Bernardo Vergara, using premium quality leather. Bernardo is himself an excellent saddler who made the Verhan saddles name famous. He worked with a team of Master Saddlers to achieve a revolutionary design which optimizes maximum freedom for the horse in the shoulders and back.
