The Grand Prix saddle is very versatile, it is used by our customers not only for Dressage but Endurance, Le Trec and especially in the Brown, Part Suede option with smaller knee blocks and shorter girthing can also provide a secure show saddle.
As with all saddles available from us a custom saddle can be designed for the individual customer if required with a number of options including custom knee blocks, twist, flap length or suede or doeskin seat or knee rolls so we really can produce the perfect saddle for you, we however recommend that you ride in a standard saddle for the 14 day trial before ordering so we can be sure the correct saddle is made as custom saddles are non returnable.
