With an elegant monoflap design complemented by the softest calfskins and quality English butt leather, the Fairfax monoflap dressage promotes an exceptionally close relationship between horse and rider.
The upper part of the panel bears the rider's weight and the lower part under the rider's knee is separated to de-restrict the shoulder girdle muscles and allow the horse's general range of movement to be significantly increased.
The perfect fit is assured with a purpose-designed dressage tree, adjustable through six width options in half-width fitting increments. Created from high-grade polymer, the tree is at once durable and lightweight. Well-balanced panels with a broad bearing surface ensure an even distribution of weight across the horse's back, while his comfort is further enhanced with 100% British wool flocking that can be adjusted quickly and easily to maximise panel contact. Additionally, the girthing can be tailored to the horse's requirements with a unique triple-billet system. Girthing options both on and off the point can be used in combination with a slimline, self-levelling balance strap to optimise saddle stability without impeding his natural movement.
For the rider, an open, balanced seat allows for the most subtle of aids and adjustments. Surface-mounted thigh rolls are contoured to offer support without restriction of the knees, while stirrup leathers are recessed for closer contact with the horse's sides. A winning combination of quality and high performance – hand-crafted in Walsall, England, by highly-skilled Master Saddlers.
