As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).
Why We Love This
The Passier Optimum Dressage Saddle has been specifically designed to be particularly easy on the horse while also conveying an exclusive feeling for the rider which is why it is often the top choice for professional riders. The Optimum was designed to ensure the perfect riding position and is now available with an even narrower twist for closer contact with the horse. The Passier Optimum Dressage Saddle has been designed to Passier’s legendary standards and features the PS Baum® tree. The tree is made from a wood laminate reinforced with bamboo to allow for tremendous flexibility for both the rider's feel and the horse's comfort. The tree for this model is wider at the back allowing for a roomier, extra deep, and softly padded seat. This saddle also features Passier's Freedom® Panel System to provide optimized wither clearance, making this saddle excellently suited to horses with wide or particularly sensitive withers. With Freedom Panels, the saddle panels are lowered (without impacting the width of the saddle tree) to create a wider saddle channel. The wider saddle channel allows maximum clearance of the horse's spine and withers to allow for greater freedom of movement under saddle, as well as broader surface contact with the horse's back for overall better fit.
