Adjustable Shoulder Block

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

Performance Panel

Patent: GB2515079. 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, allowing the shoulder independence of movement. Scientific testing shows that this affords the horse improved limb extension, joint flexion and gait symmetry.

Fairfax Gareth Monoflap Dressage  RRP £2400

Patent: GB2515079

We developed this saddle with 2014 WEG team silver medallist Gareth Hughes who wanted a saddle that allowed him to feel a greater connection with his horse without restricting the ability to give the subtlest aids or make minute adjustments.

The Gareth Monoflap benefits from all the features common to every saddle in the Performance range, plus the following performance-enhancing details:

  • The seat is more ‘forward’ in order to precisely align the rider more ‘in’ over the horse’s centre of balance.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • A recess in the flap allows the riders’ upper leg to form a closer contact with the horse’s side without any uncomfortable rubbing.
  • Surface mounted thigh blocks designed to give the rider enhanced support without restricting their position.
  • Full grain leather for an instant pre-broken-in feel.

The Fairfax Gareth is available with longer or shorter custom flap options, depending on your leg length (see chart below)

Fairfax Rebecca Monoflap Dressage Saddle RRP £2400

Patent: GB2515079

Following the unprecedented success of the Fairfax Gareth Dressage Monoflap saddle, we started to receive repeated requests for a more ‘feminine’ version. So we asked renowned producer of young dressage horses and equestrian style icon Rebecca Hughes to add some luxurious design touches.

Based on her husband’s bestselling Gareth saddle, the Rebecca Monoflap benefits from all the features common to every saddle in the Performance range (see design details below), plus the following details:

Discreet snakeskin print on the cantle and stirrup loop adds enough glamour to turn heads while still oozing style.
Grey stitching on the flaps and welting on the seat brings a touch of class and elegance.
The seat is more ‘forward’ in order to precisely align the rider more ‘in’ over the horse’s centre of balance, allowing the rider to feel a greater connection with their horse without restricting the ability to give the subtle aids or adjustments.
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.
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 Girthing options in the dropdown below).
A recess in the flap allows the riders’ upper leg to form a closer contact with the horse’s side without any uncomfortable rubbing (see Adjustable Shoulder Blocks below).
Surface mounted thigh blocks give the rider enhanced support without restricting their position.

Available in seat sizes 161/2″, 17″, 171/2″ & 18″

Fairfax Spencer Monoflap Dressage Saddle  RRP £2400

Patent: GB2515079

Olympic medallist Spencer Wilton has been working with Fairfax for more than two years to refine and perfect this model that is stamped with his personal touch.  It features a new tree design that offers a roomier seat, plus a unique concealed, moveable knee block.

The Spencer Monoflap benefits from all the features common to every saddle in the Performance range, plus the following performance-enhancing details:

  • The seat is more ‘forward’ in order to precisely align the rider more ‘in’ over the horse’s centre of balance.
  • A unique knee block is hidden in the monoflap design. The position can be adjusted to give the rider incredible flexibility of support.
  • The 17½” and 18″ saddles come with a choice of two block sizes. This choice, combined with the adjustable position, gives the rider even more flexible support options. (See Concealed Block below).
  • The seat is wider and more ‘open’ than the Gareth model. This will suit riders who prefer more room in the seat, or those who like a more relaxed dressage position.
  • The 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.
  • Contrast stitching on the flaps and skirt.

Concealed Block

This unique monoflap comes with a knee roll that can positioned according to the rider’s preference – adjust it up, down, away from the leg or towards the leg to provide tailor-made support. When the block is in place, it is concealed under the flap.

The 17 1/2” and 18” saddles come with a choice of sizes (short and long). This gives even more support options and greater flexibility for the rider’s leg.
