Dressage saddles

Every dressage saddle from the Harry Dabbs range is made by one skilled craftsman from start to finish. There is a large selection of laminated spring trees manufactured onsite ensuring the correct fit can be achieved regardless of horse shape, breed or size.

In addition to the selection of trees there is a choice of panels – Traditional or Performance. Both provide freedom of the trapezius muscle while the popular performance panel is designed to leave the horse’s back a fraction sooner than a traditional panel.

Either option will encourage your horse to engage the hind quarters with comfort and confidence. For the rider’s comfort most models are available with a choice of flap length, twists, knee pads/ blocks and leather finishes.
