Our special touch
the custom fit
Aulion Sellier is the only French saddler today who makes dressage saddles 100% custom fit.
Before a saddle is made, we start the design phase with a test ride. Aulion Sellier provides each client with this experience.
We design each of our dressage saddles like a singular, original product, thus pledging a unique experience to every horse-rider pair.
- Horse measurements: height and width of withers, opening of shoulders, scapula position, conformation of back, muscle mass.
- Rider measurements: length of legs, size of pelvis, weight, consideration for any anatomical dissymmetry – from natural or other causes.
- Dynamic measurements: observation of the horse-rider pair in movement to define the essential requirements of rider’s seat, thigh positioning, taking into account level of equitation, goals in riding, and any points to correct (the latter necessitates the coach/instructor’s presence)…
It is also the specificity of this custom fit which allows our saddles to be modified based on changes to horse morphology or the way the rider is moving.
Thus, upon your request, we can visit you again to take new measurements according to how you and the horse are evolving. We then make all necessary modifications in our workshop to the tree, panels, gullet, thigh blocks, etc.
