The Kemlyn is Adam Ellis’ best seller world-wide for good reason; it is designed for the serious dressage rider, to promote communication and center the balance of the rider. It is available as a mono-flap or dual flap, with a variety of tree and panel shapes to fit most horses. The Kemlyn Cob is a particularly nice option for the more rotund equids.

Prestige Italia

The X-D2 K is a very comfortable monoflap saddle offers a close contact feel. The rear of the seat is significantly larger than a traditional dressage saddle, and has two padded, enlarged membranes that help keep you centered in the saddle. The front girth straps are elastic, while the rear ones determine the balance of the saddle. The panels are shaved in the front to give the most freedom to the shoulders. The panels are wider along their entire length to distribute the weight of the rider more evenly. The three withers sizes fit all horses.

Developed in collaboration with German champion Helen Langehanenberg, the X-Helen has a deep seat with a forward, narrow twist to keep the rider’s balance at the front and very close to the horse. Anatomically shaped panels guarantee freedom of movement for the trapezius muscles. Soft, comfortable seat.

A classic dressage saddle suited for both beginners and experienced riders, the Roma has a soft, deep seat with anatomically shaped knee pads. It allows for a close contact feel to the horse.

The X-D1 offers a narrow, deep twist and deap seat to keep the rider’s balance to the front of the saddle. It fits short, muscular horses outstandingly well, thanks to the tree and panel design, and offers both a close contact feel and massive shoulder freedom for the horse. Available as a monoflap (K) or dual flap.

The X-Breath dressage has a large oval opening in the center of the seat to both increase air circulation for the horse’s spine, and relieve pressure on the rider’s coccyx. The hole is covered with a special ultra elastic 3D material that increases the comfort of the seat, and creates a lighter saddle as well. A super combination of modern technology and classic design for both horse and rider!

A wonderful saddle for petite adults and juniors, the Lucky guarantees an excellent seat position. Soft hide provides a sticky grip, and the narrow twist allows for closer contact while riding. The velcro front blocks can be adjusted to the ideal angle for riders with and leg length.
