From the Baines website:
The elegantly designed and styled Capriole Dressage Saddle by Frank Baines is an exceptionally comfortable saddle, made from the worlds finest materials. Oiled full grain solid leathers for the flaps and skirts and a new soft, natural Aniline hide for the seat and pads.
The position of the knee block ensures a close and flatter position to support the upper leg aided by long girth straps which are secured in a V formation to help minimize any movement. A wide, softly padded seat provides comfort and excellent balanced support for the rider and a specially designed new panel system allows a closer contact feel. In addition the option of the Standard or longer flap length allows the rider to select a saddle to their individual requirements allowing comfort and fit for both horse and rider.
The specially designed spring tree made from re-enforced laminated Birch, with extended stirrup bars is made with a lower cantle for those riders who prefer a flatter seat, assisting the rider to achieve the perfect balance and harmony which is the Art of Dressage.
