A truly luxurious hide-covered monoflap for the dressage rider seeking a close-contact feel. The surface-mounted thigh block offers optimum support but is not too large or restrictive.

  • Fully covered in ultra-deluxe, high-grip and super-soft full grain hide
  • The surface-mounted thigh block on this model is slightly wider and deeper than the Classic Monoflap and offers optimum support but without compromising the rider's seat or balance
  • The same forward seat as the Classic Monoflap which encourages the rider to sit up through the core in a true dressage seat
  • Same unique girthing options as our Classic Monoflap Dressage

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

This saddle has unique girthing options to achieve stability on even the most difficult conformations.

Classic Monoflap Dressage Girthing

Begin in the neutral position using the second and third billet. If the saddle shifts forward when the horse is ridden, switch to the first and third billet.

Classic Monoflap Dressage Girthing

If the saddle is still moving forwards, pull the first billet out of the sleeve in the flap and slide it through the slots at the top and bottom of the leg of the panel.

Never, under any circumstances, use the first and second billets as this will unbalance the saddle.
