PDS Carl Hester Grande II Dressage Saddle
Traditionally designed dressage saddle with a double flap design and a soft, yet supportive deep seat for a very secure feeling. Specifically designed with minimal rigging under the leg to allow proper position. Concave block design allows the leg to rest securely against it in a comfortable, natural manner without interference to the knee, which encourages a quiet lower leg.
With a full panel designed to suit a broader shouldered horse with an uphill build and a straighter, more level back. Patented AMS synthetic wool panels are softer and kinder to the horse's back, and combined with the wider channel, encourage the horse to lift and use its back more effectively, while providing the rider with a smoother, shock absorbing ride.
The Carl Hester Collection by PDS is a unique saddle collection, developed in conjunction with Carl Hester MBE, designed to maximize horse and rider performance. Featuring top-quality leather, redesigned panels for maximum and even contact, wide channel for spinal clearance, perfectly center-balanced seat, and anatomically designed to allow close contact and proper leg position. These saddles are built on an unbreakable carbon fiber polymer tree with the X-Change adjustable tree system, and AMS flocked panels. The tree interacts with the movement of horse and rider, enabling the horse to move freely and providing rider comfort.
