Why a dressage saddle has to fit perfectly
We all know the equation: A poorly fitting saddle is just as annoying for your horse as it is for us to walk in the wrong shoes. With the same effect. Because it causes pain and that makes your horse walk wrong. This has all kinds of annoying and, certainly in the long run, costly consequences:
• Reduced longitudinal bending
• Restriction in freedom of movement and shoulder freedom
• Back problems in rider and horse
• Physical discomfort
We as Graziozo stand for innovation and adaptability for the rider & horse. We believe that the saddle should be optimal for your horse. But we also think it is very important that the saddle must also be optimal for the rider because as a rider you have a major influence on the horse's back.. And being optimally balanced in the saddle from the correct pelvic position is essential for your horse to function as comfortably as possible.
