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 Passier Sirius Dressage Saddle is the first saddle to feature Passier's frt-System!  The Sirius Dressage Saddle guarantees that the horse's shoulder is able to rotate completely free, allowing greater freedom of movement.  The saddle tree is constructed with an anatomically formed gullet plate bar that prevents contact with the shoulder blade cartilage during movement.  Horses ridden in the Sirius saddle are more relaxed and content, and riders also report a particularly calm and harmonious sitting sensation in the saddle. Handmade in Germany since 1867.

Favorite Features

    Passier Sirius Dressage Saddle is rated 3.3333 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Saddle The Passier Sirius is a beautiful saddle. Soft leather, comfortable seat, light weight, balancing without restricting. Reference: I am 5'4", weigh about 140 lbs with most of it on my behind and on my thighs (ugggghhhhh.....) - if you have 40" hips like I do, the 17.5" seat test saddle will unfortunately not give you an opportunity to truly appreciate this saddle. And ... the folks at SmartPak is really awesome. On my journey to find a saddle for my mare I have encountered a lot of "professionals" who should take a lesson in customer service from the ladies/gentlemen at SmartPak.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost perfect! I tried this saddle for my very large, 6-year-old Hanoverian gelding. I chose this saddle for a number of reasons: I love the W-girthing system! Very freeing for the shoulders. (Never been a fan of point billets for dressage movement.) Also has an anatomically shaped tree, a concept I love. The movable Velcro thigh block was a fabulous feature, being a 6' tall female and having an impossible time getting a saddle flap/block/seat combo to work well for a straighter leg position. I really, truly loved the saddle from start to finish, and the only issue I had with it was the channel wasn't very wide for my 17.2h, very big boned baby boy, and he acted like it was pinching the transverse processes of his vertebrae ... so, back it went. Otherwise, I would have bought it on the spot!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not for Me! I had high expectations for this saddle as I have always been a fan of Passier. Unfortunately, it proved to be one of the most uncomfortable saddles I have ever been in. I could not find its center and, as a result, had a hard time keeping a balanced seat. My trainer had the same issues with the saddle that I did. I sent it back.
