NSC SRV “Vanessa” Monoflap Dressage


Added to the NSC range in 2020, The SR Vanessa Dressage Saddle has been designed for you if you spend serious time in the saddle and want the best for both your bum and your horse’s back!

A monoflap to give you a close contact feel, and external knee blocks and deeper seat to give you added support on your big moving horse.

We heard your cries that you love the rider feel of the close contact latex/foam panels, so keeping the horse’s back in mind, we found a compromise to keep everyone happy – a revolutionary wool Pro Panel, that can be flocked to fit your horse, but feels close for you like latex!


The SR saddles have been designed by SMS Qualified Saddle Fitters, Critiqued and tweaked by NZ Top Dressage Riders (Vanessa Way, Abby Deken, Sophie de Clifford and Lucarne Dolley) and created by our UK Saddle Maker Adam Ellis, who visited NZ to work on achieving the ultimate fit.

This saddle is designed for the NZ warmblood- those with a bit more curve through their backs. The point length accommodates medium to high withers, long withers, and the panel is designed to support the front of the saddle, so it can’t get sucked down onto the Trapezius, allowing for freedom of movement for the horse. Available in a deep rear gusset version also.
