This is a very gently used Verhan Odyssey One 2010 model dressage saddle in superb condition. Although a 2010 model, this saddle was only purchased as new a year ago. We believe this is a medium width fitting, but it was apparently fitted for a wide horse. The saddle has an adjustable tree but can be altered by any Verhan saddler. It features a close contact type of monoflap design, a gorgeous deep seat and well placed knee blocks. Verhan states that this saddle gives you an effortless, secure, correct position, and allows you to influence your horse easily.
The design of the saddle with its short upswept panels makes it particularly good for short backed horses, such as Andalusians, Lipizzaners, also Arabians, Morgans, cobs, ponies, thoroughbreds, warmbloods, etc. The design offers ultimate comfort to the horse and apparently famous Spanish Riding School rider Arthur Kottas and Florida’s national dressage rider, Michael Poulin both prefer this saddle!
These saddles sell for almost $5000 new. The Odyssey model is a favorite for the competitive rider because its forward balance, deep seat with elegant reduced cantle and unique hidden thigh block that holds the leg without turning the knee out. Now with its patent pending “FreeShoulder™” fit with its revolutionary ergonomic design for remarkable freedom of movement in the horse and connection between the horse and rider. The Odyssey encourages a long, straight classical leg position.
