The Prestige Philosophy K dressage saddle in calfskin leather features a new, unisex tree which is designed to improve the performance of both the horse and the rider.
The tree is revolutionary and structurally innovative. It features the ‘Coccyx-Protection-System’ technology – otherwise known as CPS.
CPS consists of a new injected-membrane geometry with differentiated capacity to absorb all stress and movement. The CPS technology was developed to protect the rider’s ischia bones, coccyx and back. The central membrane has greater elasticity than the two on either side, and it is visible through the soft Plexiglass window positioned in the saddle’s gullet.
The tree is wider in the pommel than other saddles, and the tree points are slightly angled, when compared to the usual position, to allow the rider to put the saddle further forward, without hindering the horse’s shoulders.
These unique features ensure greater freedom of movement for both the withers and the trapezius muscle, allowing the horse to move without restrictions during training and competition events.
The seating position is deep and the twist is narrow – this allows the rider to feel very close to the horse. The seat is wider towards the cantle, and it is extremely comfortable thanks to the new CPS membranes.
The blocks of the saddle have been redesigned and their innovative design follow the anatomy of the horse, providing greater freedom of movement for the horse’s shoulders.
The back of the cantle and the channel between the panels are lined in damask leather.
The panels are shaped anatomically to the horse and feature a wider surface area near the cantle to facilitate better weight distribution and therefore greater freedom of movement for the trapezius muscles.
The saddle’s unique polymer tree is fully machine adjustable and boasts a lifetime guarantee. This allows for the wither fit of the saddle to be adjusted to provide the optimal fit for the horse throughout its training and competitive career.
The saddle is finished with a round cantle and eye-catching details such as the distinctive Prestige saddle nails, embossed Prestige Philosophy logo on the saddle flap, raised detail below the stirrup keeper and a unique design on the back of the cantle.
