Lovely used dressage saddle for sale. This is the popular Prestige D1 Engelke dressage saddle with a 17ins seat and a medium width fitting.
The Prestige D1 Dressage saddle was created to maximize freedom of movement in the horse’s wither and shoulder area. Its design makes it particularly well suited to short backed horses with highly developed shoulders. For the rider, the D1 has a deep, soft seat, big blocks and a narrow twist. Special flaps reduce thickness under the rider’s thighs. Special panels provide freedom for the horse’s shoulders.
Designed by Carsten Engelke, a German rider from Langenhagen in conjunction with Prestige Saddlery, the design is such that it allows room in the shoulders for the growth of the horse, both when they move and pump up through their shoulders, and when their muscles grow and the get bigger as they develop. The design also allows for a maximum amount of movement and reach in the horse’s shoulders, but doesn’t push the rider into a position and lock his/her seat there. But it does let the rider really feel the horse and follow its natural movement.
