TheTackGuide will try to find you the current best price and availability for all new Prestige jumping and dressage saddles !
The Prestige company, founded in 1974, is situated in Northern Italy, and is now one of the world’s largest and most successful saddlemakers, offering a vast range of dressage, jumping, endurance and all purpose saddles. The business was started through the innovation of the Stocchetti-Rasia family and their passion for horse riding and everything to do with it. Particular importance was laid on the morphological features of the different equine breed and on the needs of riders for comfort and balance.
Over the time the business acquired greater technical knowledge as from Germany, England and Switzerland, it assimilated their longlasting traditions in saddle-making. In the last 10 years the company has known a great expansion and because of the international influence and use of the products, Prestige will now become Prestige Italia. A name which is rapidly growing in popularity worldwide for its quality and product range.

The X-Prestige Helen saddle is a truly high-quality dressage model, developed by PrestigeItaly for the German champion Helen Langehanenberg.
This new model has a much deeper seat than with any other Prestige dressage saddle and it enables theX-Helen Prestige rider to “sit deep” in the seat but without hampering the horse’s movement. The X-technology, with its elastic membranes, gives extra comfort for the rider, making the seat very soft. The entire saddle design, with very thin and soft close-contact panels is intended to afford the utmost freedom of movement to the muscles of the horse’s trapezius, as well as the utmost comfort for the rider.

Now there is also a monoflap version of the X-Helen, which is extremely lightweight at just over 5kgs., and otherwise has the same features of the regular X-Helen, but the front block is externally mounted on the flap, giving incredibly close-contact for the rider.
