Horse & Hound brings you the latest products on the equestrian market. This round-up features Equerry, Toggi, Shadow Horse and Childeric Saddles
Dressage saddle for Childeric Saddles
The Childeric DSC dressage saddle features the brand’s ‘new generation’ seat.
The slim line centre offers the rider a deeper seat position, “allowing for a closer and more connected feel with the horse” said a company spokesman.
The saddle has anatomically shaped panels and carefully positioned points to help freedom of movement.
The variety of girth strap positions ensure that the horse is not restricted and the bespoke knee blocks, seat depths and sizes enable the rider to sit comfortably and centrally in the saddle.
The new version of the saddle comes with contrast stitch detail, piping and Swarovski crystals on the cantle.
It has a black buffalo finish and is available in seat sizes 16-18.5in; tree widths: standard, medium and wide.
The dressage DSC with personalisation costs £4,100.
