Seat Size 17, 17½
Changeable Gullet S-Bar
Series Original
Conformation Low Profile

This saddle will suit you if you have a low-wither, flat back or barrel shaped horse (such as a cob type) and you like the flexibility of a moveable support block under the flap which can be positioned to suit your requirements. A low-profile panel design gives a close-contact feel with your horse and helps eliminate that ‘perched’ feeling.

All Kent & Masters saddles share the features below, while this Cob Dressage also benefits from the following details:

  •  Flatter tree shape which follows the low-withered flat-backed profile.
  • Slim front and rear gussets to create a low profile and reduce bulk between the horse and rider.
  • Velcro thigh block under the flap which can be positioned to suit your leg length and the amount of support required.
  • Changeable girth straps which provide three possible girthing arrangements and allow you to optimise saddle stability (see girthing options below).

All Kent & Masters saddles benefit from the following features:

changeable gullet barsChangeable gullet bar

A changeable gullet bar allows you or your saddle fitter to modify the width of the saddle’s gullet to suit the horse’s wither profile as the horse changes shape with either exercise, muscle development, maturity or rest. There are 8 options in the short S-bar and 7 in the long R-bar.

Campaign for Real Wool100% British wool flocking

Wool is a natural fibre and provides superior softness and comfort for the horse because it moulds and settles quickly, giving optimum panel contact with the horse’s back. Two reinforced flocking slots make it easy for your saddle fitter to do any necessary adjustments to fit on-site

Kent & Masters Dressage saddles (S-Series and Original) offer girthing solutions to fine-tune the fit of your saddle.


Dressage Girthing Neutral Position

Your saddle fitter will always begin in the neutral position with the moveable billet attached behind the point.

Dressage Girthing Billet moved to point

To increase saddle stability if the saddle slips forward, the saddle fitter has the option of moving the billet (girth strap) onto the point.

Dressage Girthing Point strap in locked position

For added security, the point strap can be locked in position by passing the billet through the loop at the bottom of the panel.


Fitting Solutions CobLow Profile / Cob

  1. Flat tree shape and low head to follow the flat-back profile
  2. Slim front and rear gussets which create a low profile and reduce bulk between horse and rider
  3. Straighter cut panel and flap that help eliminate interference of the bulky shoulder, so common in the cob type.

km dressage moveable blockKent & Masters Moveable Block dressage saddles benefit from a large Velcro thigh block under the flap which can be positioned to suit your leg length and the amount of support required.

The feature makes this an ideal first-time dressage saddle, because the block can be re-positioned as the rider’s dressage position develops and their leg naturally lengthens.
