“The Fairfax Gareth is a saddle that allows the rider to feel a greater connection with the horse without restricting the ability to give the subtlest aids or make minute adjustment. The sperformance-enhancing details include:
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.
This saddle was designed and tested using pressure mapping and gait analysis."...Read full description
