Chosen by Charlotte Dujardin and Laura Tomlinson.
Scientifically developed and delivering a remarkable feeling of synchronicity and 'oneness' between horse and rider.

  • The deformable knee block is slightly higher and slightly more tilted providing a different interface option for the rider’s leg to the World Class I
  • The block incorporates a shock-absorbing element that accommodates the forward movement of the knee – the optimal level of support without restriction.
  • To fine tune the leg support further, thanks to a quick and easy adjustment, the flap can be tilted through three different positions to move the block in relation to the rider’s thigh
  • Softer seat for rider feel-appeal
  • The Prolite-lined full panel has additional strengthening built into the top to maximise saddle stability
  • The World Class Dressage saddles are the only saddles to be scientifically tested with pressure mapping under the saddle and under the rider, combined with simultaneous two-dimensional and three-dimensional analysis of both horse and rider.
  • Luxurious, super-grippy calf leather
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.

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.

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.

There are three billet slots on the World Class II flap - your saddle fitter can choose to slide the third billet through one of these to enhance saddle stability even further.

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

Care & Use

LeathergelThe correct care of your Fairfax saddle is essential. Follow these instructions to ensure years of happy service from your purchase

  • If you have purchased your saddle new, it will come with a tube of Rapide Leathergel. Apply a generous coat of Rapide before first use, using a soft cloth or sheepskin mitt.
  • Any dirt etc should be removed with a damp cloth after use.
  • Then re-apply Leathergel at least once a week to dry, clean leather. Apply to all surfaces.
  • Never use wet tack.
  • Do NOT use any products containing alcohol (such as spray soap), glycerine (eg saddle soap) or oil (including neatsfoot) on this saddle. Any colour loss or damage to the leather caused by these products will not be covered by the saddle’s guarantee.
  • If your saddle gets wet (in the rain or on the XC course for eg) allow the leather to dry naturally. Do not use external heat sources.
  • Check regularly that all four gullet bolts and the two panel screws remain tight.
  • Rapide Leathergel is readily available online. This is the only product we recommend for the care and maintenance of your Fairfax saddle.
