ALBION DRESSAGE SADDLES
The starter saddle in a great range of top quality, world renowned, dressage saddles. This model is the latest version of the very popular K2 Legend dressage saddle, which has been around for several years. Now it has a narrower twist, and slightly deeper seat, but most importantly offers the versatility of changeable width fittings.
*Now in 2014 this model uses Albion’s new Adjusta-Tree which allows for width variation.
Same basic saddle as the regular SLK, but with flaps and skirts made in the softer, and very hard-wearing ‘Ultima’ leather, with calfskin pads. Versions available in Narrow or Regular seat width. A truly great dressage saddle, based on a traditional English springtree.
The Ultima version of the long established SL model is still in demand. Slightly flatter and more open seat than the SLK models, and only available with the Narrower seat. Long lasting design excellence, beautifully made.
One of Albion’s latest Albion Platinum Ultimamodels, using similar design principles as the long established SLK range, but built on an advanced saddletree which has changeable gullet and width fittings, and also changeable panels. Made in Regular or Narrow seat versions. Non-Ultima version is also available. Innovative design from Albion. Very popular now…
A luxurious version of the Platinum, finished all over in specially treated calfskin, with ornate stitching to the flaps. This saddle has all the benefits of the Platinum models, and looks ‘a million dollars’ !
