Fairfax Monoflap Dressage Saddle is an elegant monoflap design complimented by the softest calfskins and quality English butt leather the saddle. It promotes an exceptionally close relationship between horse and rider.
The horses movement is enhanced by cut-away styling at the front of the saddle which provides plenty of freedom for the horse's shoulders and enables suppleness and elasticity at all paces.
The perfect fit is assured with a purpose-designed dressage tree adjustable through six width options in half-width fitting increments. Created from high-grade polymer the tree is at once durable and lightweight.
Well-balanced panels with a broad bearing surface ensure an even distribution of weight across the horses back while his comfort is further enhanced with 100% British wool flocking that can be adjusted quickly and easily to maximise panel contact.
Additionally the girthing can be tailored to the horses requirements with a unique triple-billet system. Girthing options both on and off the point can be used in combination with a slimline self-levelling balance strap to optimise saddle stability without impeding his natural movement.
For the rider an open balanced seat allows for the most subtle of aids and adjustments. Surface-mounted thigh rolls are contoured to offer support without restriction of the knees while stirrup leathers are recessed for closer contact with the horse's sides.
A winning combination of quality and high performance hand-crafted in Walsall England by highly-skilled Master Saddlers using selected Italian calf skins and top grade English butt leather.
Velcro closure along the length of the panel and two flocking slots enable the flocking to be quickly and easily adjusted. Seven changeable gullet bar width options in half width fitting increments allow the selection of the exact width for the horses profile. Use R Bar gullet plates on this saddle.

A-B)
How to Choose The Right Fit
The fit of your rug is very important to ensure the optimal comfort and ease of movement for your horse. Since horses of the same height at the wither come in a variety of shapes and sizes, it is useful to take careful measurements of your horse to choose the right size rug.
Using a soft tape measuring tape, measure from (A) t the centre point of the chest, across the point of the shoulder and to the point (B) the rear of the hind legs where you would like the rug to finish.
How do I know that I have the right fit
A well fitting rug will not move or rub your horse.
- Place the rug forward and in front of the wither. The chest buckle should be fastened on the first or second hole, leaving a small gap. Further back than this the horse may need a larger size.
- The neck line should sit well up on the neck clear of the shoulder with the shoulder gussets correctly positioned on the point of the shoulder.
- The rug should finish at the top of the tail for most horses (the tail flap will then cover the rest)
- Leg straps are looped through each other loose enough to prevent chaffing but not loose enough to hang any where near the horses hocks.
- Leg strap clips should face inwards to the horse to reduce the chance of catching on fences or other hazards.
