This is our modern version of the long running Aotearoa Standard Seat. With a shorter flap length to better suit our NZ riders, and a moveable knee block to allow you to customise your position in the saddle. It still has it's traditional  deeper seat, a contoured latex seat with a medium-wide comfort twist, this saddle is great for dressage competitions and yet comfortable enough to hack out in!
