Hand-selected Dressage Tack and Sport Horse Supplements
From a spectator’s view, the sport of dressage may appear seamless, an elegant simplicity of circles and diagonals and transitions. As a dressage rider, you well know that “seamless” and “simple” are two adjectives that infrequently enter one’s mind when completing such a complex test. Dressage requires patience, practice and precision. The sport demands an unwavering quality of tack and a horse’s ultimate health and soundness.
With this, our team of equestrians, and dressage-loving enthusiasts, have hand-selected their favorites for dressage saddles, English tack, as well as best-in-class supplements for sport horses, to help you and yours shine.
The saddle: Made from supple, quality leather, the Collegiate Integrity Mono offers the dressage rider generous blocks and a deep seat for accurate positioning and added security, ideal for the forward-moving dressage horse. We especially love the white stitching for a subtly bold statement.
The girth: This quality memory-foam padded girth provides competition horses with ultimate comfort, at an excellent value for riders in the irons.
The bridle: This bridle from Kincade offers horses added comfort through a padded browband and noseband, with a removable flash. With its simple elegance and great price point, it’s an equestrian favorite.
The saddle: This dressage saddle from Kincade is perfect for the up-and-coming dressage rider or eventer (who in addition, has already budgeted for a jumping saddle). Featuring quality leather, a much-desired deep seat and knee blocks, this is a value that riders, horse-show moms and horse-show dads are also sure to appreciate.
The pads: Colors, patterns and more colors. We are drawn to this soft sage and crisp white pad, which features a lively black-and-white checkered edging.
The girth: The design of this girth allows dressage horses to enjoy complete freedom of movement while keeping the saddle securely in place. Made from durable, synthetic material, maintenance is simple.
