Renowned Friesian breeder and Grand Prix dressage rider Marc-Peter Spahn had always struggled to find a saddle to fit the 'uphill' conformation of the breed. "Now, thanks to Fairfax, my horses use their back better, and I feel more balanced with a closer contact," he says.

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.

Following the unprecedented success of the Fairfax Gareth Dressage Monoflap saddle, we started to receive repeated requests for a more ‘feminine’ version. So we asked renowned producer of young dressage horses and equestrian style icon Rebecca Hughes to add some luxurious design touches.

Olympic medallist Spencer Wilton has been working with Fairfax for more than two years to refine and perfect this model that is stamped with his personal touch.  It features a new tree design that offers a roomier seat, plus a unique concealed, moveable knee block.

Developed with seven-times Olympian Andrew Hoy to enable him to feel a greater harmony with his horses, the specifically designed seat aligns the rider precisely over the horse’s centre of balance, enabling them both to perform at their best.

Patent GB2515079B

Designed specifically with show jumpers in mind, the panel concept de-restricts the shoulder and knee apparatus in flight, allowing the horse greater freedom of movement and therefore increased clearance over the fence. The slim-line design improves the rider’s sense of connectivity with their horse, aiding unity and a closer leg contact.
