  • The new Childéric DAC Dressage Saddle has been designed to suit event riders.
    The saddle is made with a slightly flatter seat than normal dressage saddles and also has a choice of knee blocks to give riders security without imposing a traditional position. 

    International eventer Gemma Tattersall is a fan of the new design. 
    “Traditional dressage saddles tend to force the leg into a much straighter position and like many event riders I find this restrictive,” Gemma said.
    “The DAC is perfect because the block comes in a variety of lengths to suit my style of riding, enabling me to maintain an elegant and effective position in the dressage arena without restriction”

    The French designed bespoke saddle can be built completely to the horse and rider’s requirements, including a variety of girth strap positions, which ensure that the horse is not restricted around this highly sensitive and venerable area.
    Available in seat sizes 16 -18.5” in tree widths standard, medium and wide. 
    Prices start at £3,200.
