Breed-specific Friesian saddle made by Tweespan of the Netherlands. They offer four styles of dressage saddle (the Fryso Legacy, the Fryso Lux, the Fryso Profile, and the Fryso Classic) and two styles of all-purpose saddle (the Fryso Cambridge, and the Fryso Valley).
“…We have opted to use the existing centuries-old English knowledge and expertise in combination with our experience and knowledge of the anatomy of the Frisian horse. This has resulted in a saddle that offers much comfort to the rider as well as to the horse, the Fryso® saddle. What is unique in the case of the Fryso® saddle is that the saddle is made from start to finish by the same saddle maker. This means that all of the customer’s wishes can be incorporated into the saddle.
The Fryso® saddle has extra-wide hand-stuffed panels. The panels are stuffed with 100% natural wool. These panels are anatomically shaped, allowing them to properly fit the back of the horse. These well-shaped panels distribute the weight of the rider optimally over the horse saddle. This benefits the back of the horse. The horse has to devote as little effort as possible in carrying its load. Specially designed knee rolls ensure that the legs maintain their proper position. This allows the rider to better absorb the movements of the horse.”
