Saddle up with the new Olympia from Equipe!

Equipe has introduced the Olympia saddle, ergonomically designed to offer the best riding position.

The launch comes on the back of the success of Equipe's Emporio model, or the 'Charlotte' as it's also known because it was used by Charlotte Dujardin at the 2012 Olympics. Crafted exclusively in house and individually finished in luxurious Italian leather, the Olympia has all the benefits of the Emporio saddle used by the world's number one dressage rider.

Its innovative synthetic saddle tree and flat structure of the seat allows the rider to sit closer to the horse to enhance comfort. The saddle uses a block and flap system with specially designed knee-rolls, a firm favourite with many top equestrians, as it gives an effective riding stance.

"I have been riding in my Equipe saddles for several years now. So much goes into the materials and technology that I feel completely confident in the comfort and well being of the horses. Technically and aesthetically, there isn't a better saddle out there," comments Charlotte.

In high demand, test saddles are available to try by contacting key Equipe stockists. The Olympia is available in both single and double flap models and in black, brown, red brown and new market. Saddles can also be personalised to specific sizing measurements for a precise and accurate riding experience, which is included in the price (RRP £2,600).
