Ride before you buy! This PDS® Carl Hester Grande Monoflap Test Ride Dressage Saddle can be ridden in “on trial” for three days from receipt. This test ride allows the necessary time for you to experience the feel and fit of the saddle before you commit to a purchase. This deep-seated dressage saddle offers the ultimate in close contact, whether it is rider preference or necessity on a wider horse. Designed to support a perfect union between horse and rider, it’s ideal for horses with low to medium withers. It’s crafted of premium quality double-stitched calf leather. Anatomically designed knee blocks help support the rider and encourage the lengthening of the thigh. The unbreakable carbon fiber polymer tree, equipped with the X-Change® System, enables the horse to move freely and the rider to sit comfortably. On this saddle, the AMS® panel does not have a front gusset to create a closer horse-to-rider fit. The reduced bulk of this monoflap design encourages freedom of motion through the horse’s back and shoulders. Add to that, the design eliminates point straps in the girthing system to further allow freedom of movement through the horse’s shoulders.

AMS panels distribute load evenly and reduce pressure on a horse’s back. They’re shaped to avoid restriction of the horse’s shoulders and provide a wide weight bearing surface. High-quality synthetic wool flocking, which can be altered as needed, rests inside a special, breathable layer of neoprene that protects against lumps and hot spots.

The carbon fiber polymer tree is very lightweight, flexible and incredibly strong. Anatomically designed for your horse’s comfort and performance, it allows for incredible contact between horse and rider. The X-Change System takes the worry out of saddle fitting as your horse changes shape from season to season and even throughout the season. The range of gullet plates provided in the X-Change System let you make adjustments to the saddle width conveniently and easily. A medium wide gullet is included with the saddle; other sizes of gullet plates are available separately.
