Fairfax Original Monoflap XC Saddle

with the Performance Panel

Patent application: GB2505962

Our XC saddle features our advanced split-panel design. The purpose is to separate the weight-bearing part under the rider’s seat from the part under the rider’s knee, which lies over the shoulder, therefore giving the shoulder independence of movement.

A freer shoulder allows the horse to move more naturally and flex both shoulder and knee joints freely. This makes it neater in front giving at least 5cm more fence clearance.

Range Original
Colour Black, Havanna
Seat Sizes 17", 17½"
Changeable Gullet N/M to XW/XXW
Gullet Bar Type R-Bar

Hand made in Walsall by highly skilled Master Saddlers, using selected Italian calf skins and top grade English butt leather

Six changeable gullet bar width options, in half width fitting increments, allow the selection of the exact width for the horse's profile.

100% British wool flocking provides superior softness and comfort for the horse
