Olympian Mark II Custom Dressage Saddle from Cardanel Saddlery
The Olympian Mark II was designed to help amatuer riders achieve maximum conmfort and control. The seat has a high cantle and narrow twist (even in a wider tree) to give the rider the feeling of a deep seat while still maintaining a close-contact feel. The half knee block allows for total movement of the lower leg and gives optimum support for the rider’s seat.
The saddle comes with an adjustable stirrup bar so leathers can be placed at the best location for each rider. The saddle is built on a spring tree that puts no restriction on the horse’s shoulders. Tree sizes range from narrow medium to extra wide and panels can be made longer or shorter, as can the flaps to accommodate every leg size. We generally sell this in a sturdy memel print domestic leather that is soft and grippy, but buffalo is also available upon request, as well as differing (limited) leather and piping colors.
