The Capriccia is Aiver Saddle's exquisite dressage saddle offered with a variety of customization options to make it your own. The Capriccia provides anatomically correct design for the horse and outstanding comfort and support to the rider. It has been thoughtfully designed with both horse and rider in mind. Available in 16", 16.5", 17", 17.5" and 18" seats (larger can be custom ordered).
FOR THE HORSE
The tree points are short and cut back, providing maximum freedom for the shoulder to allow the horse to show greater expression through its movement. The tree design has an open arch to give good clearance on the horse’s withers. The side bars are anatomically constructed to follow the contours of the back. The panels are flocked with high quality Jacobs Wool and have an added layer of gel foam, providing comfort for the horse’s back.
FOR THE RIDER
Gel memory foam through the seat gives your seat bones support and comfort; this shock absorption is particularly appreciated by riders who experience back or hip pain while riding. The angle of the side bars enables the rider to achieve a closer leg position to the horse.
A clever built-in quick-change mechanism allows the saddle to be fully adjustable from Narrow - XX Wide in under two minutes. This provides flexibility when the horse changes shape due to training, growth, or other factors; the saddle is able to adjust to accommodate a wide range of horses and builds.
Unless you specify otherwise, the Capriccia comes standard with:
Short knee blocks (triangular shape)
Black leather with black piping/welting and black stitching
Ultra-comfortable gel foam seat
Wool flocked panels with thin layer of gel foam against horse
Dual flap design with adjustable girth positioning
Customise your saddle to add made-to-order design details or fit options:
Add the Design Package to: change the piping/welting color; change the stitching color, add a cantle effect of contrasting leather color, patent leather, faux-crocodile or a variety of glitter colors; and/or add a leather effect in front of the knee block. We will be in touch to confirm all design aspects.
Add the Petite Panel/Flap Option to order a saddle with shortened panel (~2cm) or shortened flap (~2cm). To order a saddle with a mono flap instead of dual flap, simply let us know in the instructions or by email immediately after placing the order (please note that the adjustable girth position is not available in mono flap).
- Add the Knee Block Options to change the standard block shape to a more traditional longer block, or to specify a custom block location.
