Capriccia Dressage Saddle
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", 18", 18.5", 19" seat sizes.
FREEDOM FOR YOUR 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 over 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 combined with a thin layer of gel foam, providing comfort and flexibility to conform to the horse’s back. The panel offers an upswept back, which works well for horses with shorter backs.
PERFORMANCE FOR YOU
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. Ergonomically designed, our saddles promote correct rider position. 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 to XX Wide in under two minutes. Excellent for horses that are likely to change over time due to training, growth or other factors, and riders who anticipate frequent changes to the horse they ride. While no saddle will fit every horse, this feature gives far more flexibility to move the saddle from horse to horse than a fixed-tree saddle can offer.
Our saddles also come with a billet positioning system that allows a degree of adaptation of the girth position to fine-tune the positioning and security of the saddle.
Unless you specify otherwise, the Capriccia comes standard with:
Modern-style, short triangular knee block
Ultra-comfortable gel foam seat
Black calf leather
Black piping/welting and black stitching
Standard length flap

Need a change to the knee block? Add the Modify Blocks Package to specify a custom block position, or switch out the standard block for a more traditional long block.
