The Formal Dressage Order/Quote Form is at the Bottom of this Page

The Sensation Ride™ Formal Dressage treeless saddle allows the rider to sit very naturally on the horse, but aids the rider in keeping the leg stable. A deep seat and a wider pommel help maintain a solid, steady position. The flap of the Formal Dressage model is straighter; to be ridden with a long leg. The Formal Dressage model comes with two rings on either side of the pommel for breastplate use.

The Formal Seat offers a more traditional look while allowing the rider to feel less bulk under the thigh, and keep the pommel width to a minimum through using slightly padded flap weight jockeys around the pommel. Formal Dressages are measured using English Seat Sizing, ranging from 16" to 18".

It is best for riders who are in the show ring or who ride in a forward position or shorter stirrup position. The formal seat often requires a pommel bolster to rebalance the rider due to the cushioning being mostly toward the rear of the seat.

The "Trail" designation supplies 5 additional rings for gear. This is an option for this model.

Compared to the standard Dressage flap, the Formal model has a longer flap and more substantial knee roll with quilt lines which tend to hug the leg.
