This saddle shows minimal signs of wear (sign of a great quality leather).  Unfortunately those horses that is fitted have been anti-bling saddles.

The Berkeley dressage saddle incorporates all of the refinements expected in a state of the art dressage saddle. Our hand made wood and spring steel saddle tree has a unique shaped pommel and swept-back points give wither clearance and complete freedom of shoulder movement and a newly sculptured waist to allow the hips and thighs to fall naturally for a more comfortable leg position.

We have incorporated our Lovatt & Ricketts® stainless steel swing stirrup bar that eliminates any pressure on the horse that is a common problem in this area were the stirrup leathers are attached. The stirrup bars are made of the highest quality stainless steel and crafted to be unobtrusive to the rider’s thigh. Our panels are lined with French Calf skin and flocked with pure 100% English lambs wool to give a soft and supple profile that is the ultimate in comfort for your horse. A quick change billeting system  the rider has the flexibility to move the billets to suit the horse.

The Berkeley is crafted in the finest hand finished English and French leathers to facilitate a “no breaking in” period, giving a wonderful close-contact feel even on the first ride.
