The Berkeley™ High Performance dressage saddle incorporates all of the refinements expected in a state of the art dressage saddle. Our hand made wood and spring steel saddle tree has a unique shaped pommel and swept-back points to give wither clearance and complete freedom of shoulder movement and a newly sculptured waist to allow the hips and thighs to fall naturally for a more comfortable leg position. We have incorporated our Lovatt & Ricketts® stainless steel swing stirrup bar that eliminates any pressure on the horse that is a common problem in this area were the stirrup leathers are attached. Our stirrup bars are made of the highest quality stainless steel and crafted to be unobtrusive to the rider’s thigh. Our panels are lined with French Calf skin and flocked with pure 100% English lambs wool to give a soft and supple profile that is the ultimate in comfort for your horse. Our unique quick change billeting system is another feature on this model offering the rider the flexibility to move the front billet to two positions, this coupled with the rear billet being attached to a balancing ring; helps to achieve the perfect girth line.
The Berkeley™ is crafted in the finest hand finished English and French leathers to facilitate a “no breaking in” period, giving a wonderful close-contact feel even on the first ride.
