The new 2020 Cambridge™ Dressage is an open seat saddle with a medium depth tree. It allows the rider to sit closer to the horse and have a more balanced seat. You can shift easily from one seat bone to the other, to better apply your aids to the horse. A specifically designed saddletree accommodates the broader backed horse such as Arabians, Morgan’s, Warmbloods, Quarter Horses and Cob types it has also proved successful with many other horse breeds.
Featuring a hooped cut back hand crafted laminated Birch Wood and Spring Steel saddle tree, fitted with our Lovatt & Ricketts® Double Position Swing Bar for a correct leg position. Flatter broader lambs wool flocked panels with an open gullet offers comfort and freedom of movement for the horse.The Cambridge™ offers all the features, sophistication and finish, that one would expect from a quality classic dressage saddle, and is available in a wide selection of sizes and tree widths; to accommodate horse and rider. Lovatt & Ricketts® Saddle Trees Our saddles trees are manufactured in our own saddletree department using the finest laminated birch wood and reinforced with steel for strength. Each tree is specifically made for each model, designed by us and produced by our own Master saddletree makers. All of our trees conform to British Standards Institution 6635 so you can be assured of quality strength and reliability. The new L&R® Double Position Swing Bar allows the rider to change stirrup lengths to maintain balance in the saddle while training with different goals. When riding with a longer stirrup, use the stirrup in the back position to balance your more vertical upper body position. When you have shorter stirrups, use the front position as your balance has changed to a more forward position. The new L&R® Double Position stirrup bar is ideal for Dressage training as it allows for a longer stirrup for the classic Dressage position and a shorter stirrup for green horses or cross-training days all while allowing the rider to maintain a more balanced position.Each and every item used in the construction of our saddles is sourced in England from the finest materials available were ever possible.
