Sensation Ride™ 17.5" Formal Dressage Trail Saddle - In Stock

Sale price$3,306.00 CAD

The Sensation Ride™ Formal Dressage Trail 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.
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.
