Renowned Friesian breeder and Grand Prix dressage rider Marc-Peter Spahn had always struggled to find a saddle to fit the 'uphill' conformation of the breed. "Now, thanks to Fairfax, my horses use their back better, and I feel more balanced with a closer contact," he says.
The Fairfax Elias benefits from all the features common to every saddle in the Performance range (see design details below), plus the following performance-enhancing details:
- Deep rear, and slim front, gussets to provide a perfectly balanced platform for the rider on a horse with 'uphill' conformation.
- Full grain leather for an instant pre-broken-in feel, plus croc-print trim on the flap, cantle and front facing.
- The Unique design and placement of the billets gives the saddle fitter two adjustment options to fine-tune the fit to the horse’s shape and movement (see Girthing Options in the dropdown below).
- Three thicknesses of adjustable shoulder blocks allow the rider to sit squarely on a horse with asymmetrical shoulders while allowing the horse to move freely underneath, building up muscle without restriction. Simply use the thicker block on the side with less muscle (see Adjustable Shoulder Blocks in the dropdown below).
- Surface mounted thigh blocks designed to give the rider enhanced support without restricting their position.
This saddle was designed and tested using pressure mapping and gait analysis.
