Design Details
Scientifically tested icon

Scientifically researched
All Fairfax saddles are designed using the scientific research and development that goes into our Performance and World Class ranges. Every saddle benefits from our pressure-relieving design experience – so the horse benefits too!

Made in Britain icon

Handmade in England
All our saddles are handmade in Walsall, England by highly skilled Master Saddlers.

Prolite icon

Prolite®-lined panel
The wool-flocked panels are lined with a layer of Prolite® for proven pressure distribution, while still allowing for traditional re-flocking on site

Gullet Bars icon

Changeable Gullet Bars
All saddles feature a changeable gullet bar (either S-Bar or R-Bar) which allows the saddle fitter to choose the width fitting that best suits the profile of the horse’s withers. The bars can be changed quickly and easily as the horse develops or changes shape.

British Wool Logo

British Wool Flocking
British wool provides superior softness and comfort for the horse. Each saddle has two flocking slots which make it easy for your saddle fitter to make quick fitting adjustments on site.

Girthing Options

All Fairfax Jump saddles (World Class, Performance, Classic Deluxe and Classic) have three billets (straps), with the third one being moveable. They do not have a point strap (like the GP models), but there is the option on the Classic Petite Jump for the saddle fitter to attach a billet to the point.

Jump Girthing

The saddle fitter will begin by girthing in the neutral position using the 1st and 3rd billets

If the saddle is moving back, the saddle fitter will use the 2nd and 3rd billets

Jump Girthing

If the saddle lifts at the back, the saddle fitter will move the last billet to the balance ring and use the 2nd and 4th billets

In the cases of the saddle lifting at the back, or asymmetric movement, where extra stability is required the saddle fitter will use the 1st and 4th position

DON’T USE the 1st and 2nd billets together – this will cause instability

Additional Saddle Features
Patented Performance Panel

Jump Performance Panel

(Patent 2505962B)

This saddle features the ground-breaking Fairfax Performance Panel which is scientifically proven to reduce saddle pressure and increase shoulder & knee flexion over a fence, resulting in better clearance.

The weight-bearing part of the panel under the rider’s seat is separated from the part under the rider’s knee (which lies over the horse’s shoulder). This allows the horse’s shoulder independence of movement.

Adjustable Shoulder Blocks

Monoflap Jump Adjustable Blocks

Monoflap jump saddles with the Performance Panel are supplied with two thicknesses of changeable shoulder blocks.

If a horse has asymmetrical shoulders, use the thicker block on the side with less muscle. This allows the rider to sit squarely while the horse is free to move underneath, building up muscle without restriction.

monoflap jump block configuration for short legged riders

If you have quite short-legs you can use these blocks under the flap to support your legs.

If you have longer legs, remove the lower block and replace it with a ‘blank’ to create more room and allow you to feel closer to the horse.
