Anyone who has evented a fit, keen horse knows all about warming up for the dressage phase, with unwanted leaps, spooks and the odd big buck making it difficult to even ‘stay on’ a deep seated dressage saddle, so with exactly this problem in mind, Sue Carson Saddles is asking event riders for help with design features for the new Eventa Dressage Saddle.
As founder and managing director Sue Carson explains; “We have been working on the design of a new style of dressage saddle specifically for event horses and would welcome input from riders about what they would like from an eventing dressage saddle.
“We want to know what riders would prefer when it comes to things like the depth of the seat, the position and size of the blocks and what helps with security on a fit, ‘bouncy’ event horse, whilst still allowing them to ride in a dressage position and correctly influence their horse.”
Event riders who would like an input into the final design of the Sue Carson Saddles Eventa Dressage Saddle should email their ‘wish list’ to [email protected] before April 15th, making sure to include a full postal address and daytime telephone number, as everyone who helps with ideas and suggestions will be entered into a free prize draw to win a ‘thank you’ prize of £100 in vouchers to spend on any item(s) from the Sue Carson Saddles range of accessories.
