We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer so you won't find it cheaper anywhere else. This also means we can't apply any further discounts or promotions.

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 Relevant is built on Passier’s newly designed flexible synthetic tree. The wide channel and softly padded, gusseted panels provide comfort for the horse. The somewhat more open seat combined with flaps slightly released forward allow thighs to relax enabling the rider to sit more deeply. It also allows riding with a shorter leg, good for those with hip flexibility issues. Also features the innovative Freedom® Panel.

Black. 

Passier Freedom® Panels are specially designed to give the horse greater freedom of movement through the back. The panels are dropped 2 cm through the entire length of the saddle to give maximum spine clearance, which enables the horse to move more freely.

    Passier Relevant Dressage Saddle is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hip Challenges? Give this Saddle a Try! I submitted a review on this saddle earlier (original text below) and found out that I made a misstatement concerning the synthetic leather. A local saddle repair shop has informed me that the pieces I thought were synthetic leather are not. These pieces were finished with the equivalent of a matte patent leather finish. So there are no visible pores and the leather is less absorbent to conditioners to make it softer. These pieces are also slippery. I have ridden in the saddle for several weeks now, and it is getting less slippery and softer. The saddle maker recommended a liberal application of leather balsam with an hour in the sun on a warm day to help soften the matte finished pieces.--Original Review: I have osteoarthritis in my right hip, and I was truly beginning to despair that I would ever find a dressage saddle that was comfortable for me. The instant I slipped into this saddle, it felt like it was made just for me. No pain and no strain. I will warn everyone that synthetic leather is included in the saddle's construction and the flaps are VERY slippery and fairly stiff. This probably won't change, even after the saddle is broken in. This is why I gave four stars instead of five. I am a leather snob and much prefer the look and feel of well broken in leather to that of synthetic leather. However, the comfort and stability of my hip is well worth the trade off. I think I will develop some traction on the synthetic knee flaps over time. Until that happens, I am looking at it as an opportunity to improve my balance and my no stirrup work :-)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great and Simple Saddle! This saddlle is amazing, and fits my QH mare really well. I'm pretty short (5'1) and the shorter flaps make it easier for my leg. This saddle also makes it much easier to sit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Basic Saddle for Everyday Riding I am a short rider (5ft) with thick thighs and my Quarter Horse is huge @ 16.5 hands and thick (takes warmblood size Antares bridle) - fits us both great (I purchased the wide)My mare has a lot of shoulder movement and other saddles (including my Albion SLK - purchased new) rides forward on her - this one does not. In addition, I really like that it is not overstuffed and allows me to move in the saddle.I want to point out that my mare has decent withers but broad sholders and I believe it is the angle of this tree that helps. I do not have to over tighten the girth - in fact I leave it a little on the loose side as she is sensitive.I use only the Passier saddle pad along with their leather Anatomical girth.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hate how it fit me I ordered the test saddle to try. Nice enough saddle, nothing great or out of this world (mind you the other saddle I tested at the same time was the Antares monoflap dressage, which is about $2k more than this saddle, so this saddle was obviously not as nice as that one). I hated the way I sat in this particular saddle. It seemed to have a wide twist and as soon as I sat in the saddle on my horse, I could feel something digging into my inner thigh. It was like my seat and leg didn't lie right and caused my inner thigh to lie on the wrong spot. I've heard good things about Passier saddles, but I just don't think they're for my body type. This was the 2nd Passier saddle that fit me like this (they were 2 different models).
