The Verhan dressage saddle is definitely in the top drawer of dressage saddles on the market today. It features the FREE SHOULDER shape, so essential to all dressage horses. Very well made, excellent leather quality and has a good balance. Made in England.
It was originally discovered by trying to solve the issue of reduced performance in polo ponies due to improper saddle fit and positioning. To solve the problem, designer Bernardo Vergara, combined expertise from polo, dressage, and jumping to create a patented solution now available to all disciplines.
The shoulder of the horse is not designed to carry the weight of the rider and as a result causes chiropractic misalignment, bursitis, inversion (high head, hollow back) and atrophy of the top line muscles. All of these issues are plaguing the equestrian sports in all disciplines and in turn preventing the horse from performing at full capacity. This is painful for the horse, expensive for the owner, and reduces overall performance.
The Verhan FreeShoulder™ model is a new patented technology, a revolutionary change in concept and design and a saddle that is built around an ergonomic solution that allows the horse to perform naturally without pain and discomfort. This is the saddle that allows the rider to communicate with the horse at a whole new elevated level.
