17″ Schleese Prelude (2017) *Wool Flocked*Short Panels*
Beautiful Schleese dressage saddle that features an adjustable tree and short wool flocked panels. This saddle also features Shoulder Relief and Relief Wedge panels for additional shoulder clearance.
From the Schleese website: “The 10 cm forward/center balance soft, wide seat provides the rider complete support and comfort, while the standard narrow twist allows the rider’s leg to hang naturally straight. Accommodating the female anatomy, the extended stirrup bars and “Crotch Comfort” in our patented AdapTree® especially for a woman’s pelvis. The integrated 1⁄2-panel has an optional relief wedge or a high wedge panel, while the versatile adjustable v-webbing billet system allows for correct billet alignment and equal pull throughout the length of the tree (minimizing rocking or bridging issues with correct flocking).”
