dd performance panel 1

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.

dd hand made

Handmade in England

Made in Walsall, England by highly skilled Master Saddlers using the finest English hide and double-oiled butt leather.

dd wool black

British Wool Flocking

100% British wool flocking provides superior softness and comfort for the horse

dd gullet bar

Changeable Gullet Bars

Seven changeable gullet bar width options, in half width fitting increments, allow the selection of the exact width for the horse’s profile.

dd prolite logo

Prolite®-lined panel

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

Girthing Options

ah xc girthing 1

When first assessing the fit, your saddle fitter will start with the neutral girthing position

ah xc girthing 2

The forward girthing option is great if the saddle slips forward as the horse moves.

ah xc girthing 3

If the saddle slips backwards, you can alter the girth straps so they sit in the back slots.

Adjustable Block Options

ah block1

If your horse has asymmetrical shoulders, use the slimmer block on the side with the biggest shoulder and a thicker block on the side with less muscle. This will allow you to sit comfortably and squarely while your horse is free to move underneath you, building up muscle without being restricted.

 
ah block2

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

ah block3

If you have longer legs, remove the lower block to create more room and allow you to feel closer to their horse.

Fairfax Harry Meade Monoflap XC  RRP £2400

Developed with World Silver medallist Harry Meade to give a really close contact feeling between horse and rider. The specially-designed slimline foam panel has undergone extensive development and rigorous testing using Pliance pressure mapping and gait analysis. Scientific trials show that this design gives as much support and stability as our Performance Panel and allows the horse to flex and use his bak on take-off without restriction.

The unique design and placement of the billets on this monoflap allows your saddle fitter four girthing options to fine tune the fit to your horse’s shape and movement (see Girthing Options below)
Changeable gullet bar to allow for fluctuations in the horse’s shape throughout the season or following time off (see NB below).
Broad channel for spine clearance
We have already had a scientific paper published on the effect of saddle pressure in this area on dressage horses.
Deep, contoured foam under the tree points to give support and stability at the sides of the wither area.
Smaller thigh and calf block and a more open seat than the Andrew Hoy XC saddle, which provides the rider with a feeling of more ‘space’ in the saddle.
Covered with luxurious full-grain leather.
Made in Walsall, England by highly skilled Master Saddlers.

Available seat sizes 17″ & 171/2″
