The Optimum Dressage saddle has a wider saddle tree in the back and a deep seat. These characteristics offer more comfort to the rider and assist by finding the best seat position. Seat and knee inserts made of calf leather. Standard gusseted panels and thick thigh supports, wide channel.
The PS saddle tree was developed 50 years ago by Passier, and has been continuously produced since then in their own workshops. More than 1,200 steps are necessary to produce it. The main materials are wood and leather. In order to achieve the high degree of flexibility, several bamboo strips are worked into the saddle tree. The models with the PS saddle tree made of wood are available in up to seven different seat sizes
The Passier Optimum, built to Passier’s legendary standards features the PS Baum® tree (wood laminate reinforced with bamboo), has tremendous flexibility for both the rider’s feel and horses’ comfort.
