Zaldi's latest Alta Escuela classical dressage saddle, introduced in April 2012. We believe this is the most advanced 'Alta Escuela' saddle produced by any manufacturer, combining the traditional style of the 'high school' saddle as used by the Real Escuela de Arte Ecuestre in Jerez with the latest generation of modern high-tech dressage saddle, Zaldi's best selling San Jorge dressage saddle. This allows an excellent seat and leg position yet retains the features of the traditional Spanish (or Baroque) Alta Escuela saddle. The saddle uses the same high tech flexible tree as the San Jorge dressage saddle and the same high tech and latest modern materials in its construction. The flaps are long 'dressage' style, the latest ergonomic type with knee pad, straighter to allow a proper/classical leg position and seat. Made from a choice of superior quality selected European box-calf leather or suede leather and in a choice of colours. Latex rubber seat and high-tech waterproof anti-sweat 'wool' panels. Stainless steel safety stirrup bar. Long girth straps and you can also order with the new 'V' tensioning system to pull the saddle down equally along the horse's back and elasticated first girth strap, which allows the horse easier movement and breathing. This is probably the lightest saddle available in the traditional Alta Escuela style. As with all the latest Zaldi T + T saddles, this model is available in a choice of 5 widths and 6 seat lengths. The total length over the horse's back is approximately 54cm. Available with sheepskin cover at extra cost. Free delivery UK & most of Europe, and half price delivery to USA/Canada/Australia/New Zealand (Economy/Standard service), (including any other items ordered with this saddle).
