The Childéric DAC Dressage Saddle is a gorgeous bespoke dressage saddle created with the event rider in mind. Featuring a much flatter seat than seen in the more traditional dressage saddles, this saddle also has a variety of knee block lengths to offer the event rider security without imposing the normal favoured dressage leg position, making it a popular choice amongst eventers, as international event rider Gemma Tattersall explains:
"Traditional dressage saddles tend to force the leg into a much straighter position and like many event riders I find this restrictive. The DAC is perfect because the block comes in a variety of lengths to suit my style of riding, enabling me to maintain an elegant and effective position in the dressage arena without restriction"
Created around Childéric's unique tree technology, the Childéric DAC Dressage Saddle also pays attention to freedom of movement and comfort of the horse; thanks to it's anatomically shaped panels and carefully positioned points. The further set back points coupled with the tree work together to allow the horse to move through it's shoulder to ensure that the horse's stride is never compromised. The French designed bespoke saddle can be built completely to the horse and rider's requirements, including a variety of girth strap positions, which ensure that the horse is not restricted around this highly sensitive and venerable area. The refined panel shapes are also individually shaped to suit the anatomy of the horse being fitted with careful consideration to alleviating pressure points and wide soft panels distribute the rider's weight evenly and kindly again, allowing for clearer communication between rider and horse.
