Smith-Worthington Ultimate Dressage Saddle A788

Clearance Saddle! Contact Us to confirm availability of size and tree width.

The Ultimate Dressage saddle: radical design and classic quality combine to give you superb comfort, support and balance. The Ultimate's very long working center allows full use of your seat and lower back. One piece mono flap conceals billets and gives exceptional rider-to-horse contact. Large soft forward roll provides leg support when you want it without hindering your leg. This incredible saddle truly is the ultimate in dressage saddles.

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 Ultimate Dressage saddles are available - try one today.
