Dressage saddles allow for a deep-seat position, which makes it easier for the rider to communicate those subtle commands to their horse. The stirrup bars in dressage saddles are positioned in such a way that the horse has a greater range of motion when waiting for commands and cues from the rider.
Some dressage saddles, like this Kincade Dressage Saddle, are fitted with longer stirrup bars which allow the rider to achieve better heel, hip, and ear positions while riding. Girth straps on dressage saddles are typically longer as well, which also allows for closer contact between horse and rider. The perfect dressage saddle is a combination of comfort and refined, professional aesthetic associated with the dressage discipline.
