Smith-Worthington Elite Dressage Saddle A784

The "Elite," like all Smith-Worthington saddles is designed and styled for correct position and outstanding performance for horse and rider. Handcrafted of rich, English tanned, buttery soft buffalo leather, Elite's flexible flap offers exceptional contact…and, oh yes, elegance. The buffalo calfskin seat is medium deep, wide and comfortable. Silver filigree saddle nails and patent leather keepers have been added to complete Elite's royal look. Add the matching Elite Dressage Bridle B7784 or B7784C to take your show turnout to the next level.

Smith-Worthington incorporates over 200 years of saddle making knowledge and some of the world's finest materials in these saddles. Features include:

  • Steel & wood spring trees with strong overlapping steel head plates allow tree adjustment many times as your horse muscles and matures or if you get a different horse.
  • Gusseted panels with virgin wool flock stuffing allow proper fit to your horse.
  • “Fired” (pre-stretched) pure linen webbing insures that the seat never sags - you sit in a “hammock” of web and never hit the steel bars of the tree.
  • Deeply recessed stirrup bars nearly eliminate stirrup leather bulge under the skirts.
  • Made in England.
  • 20 year tree warranty.
  • Demo Elite saddles are available - try one today.

DYO: All of our Smith-Worthington English-made saddles can be custom ordered as DYO (Design Your Own) models. Once you find the seat you like best, we will build it with your choice of flaps (size, shape, amount/location of padding), leg support, billets, stirrup bars, and leathers. For DYO prices, add 20% to the price of the base saddle. Call or email us to ask about DYO!
