Compact Dressage Saddle
Compact Dressage Saddle Detail

Compact Dressage Saddle

Invented by Passier: the perfect saddle for horses with a short back – and for their riders! Until now riders of compact horses always had to select a small seat size to avoid saddle pressure on the horse´s loins. But such a small seat area was often problematic for the rider. However: the era of compromise has ended because Passier has succeeded in making a big break-through with the Compact Dressage Saddle. The saddle combines a short contact surface for the horse with a significantly larger and more comfortable seat for the rider. Naturally the Compact also sets new standards regarding horse-friendliness. The panels give the horse greater freedom for the withers and the new W-girth arrangement ensures that the saddle remains firmly in place: whilst pressure is taken off the horse´s shoulder at the front, at the back the strap exerts just the right pressure in precisely the area where the greatest hold is required.

Eye-catcher: the saddle is now also available with sparkling Swarovski Elements on the stirrup strap loop and/or the skirt. The wide choice of design variations on the cantle opens up additional possibilities. Stop dreaming and start creating: select the leather, the trim and the Swarovski Elements and design your personal saddle. Dreams do come true!
