Description

Fairfax Gareth Monoflap Dressage Saddle

Patent: GB2515079

We developed this saddle with 2014 WEG team silver medallist Gareth Hughes who wanted a saddle that allowed him to feel a greater connection with his horse without restricting the ability to give the subtlest aids or make minute adjustments.

The Gareth Monoflap benefits from all the features common to every saddle in the Performance range (see design details below), plus the following performance-enhancing details:

  • The seat is more ‘forward’ in order to precisely align the rider more ‘in’ over the horse’s centre of balance.
  • The Unique design and placement of the billets gives the saddle fitter two adjustment options to fine-tune the fit to the horse’s shape and movement (see Girthing Options in the dropdown below).
  • Three thicknesses of adjustable shoulder blocks allow the rider to sit squarely on a horse with asymmetrical shoulders while allowing the horse to move freely underneath, building up muscle without restriction. Simply use the thicker block on the side with less muscle (see Adjustable Shoulder Blocks in the dropdown below).
  • A recess in the flap allows the riders’ upper leg to form a closer contact with the horse’s side without any uncomfortable rubbing.
  • Surface mounted thigh blocks designed to give the rider enhanced support without restricting their position.
  • Full grain leather for an instant pre-broken-in feel.

The Fairfax Gareth is available with longer or shorter custom flap options, depending on your leg length (see chart below)

This saddle was designed and tested using pressure mapping and gait analysis.
