As ridden in by Janina Kletke winner of Prix St Georges and the Prix St Georges Stars of the Future competition at the 2013 Australian Dressage Championships.
As the first saddle with the frt-System¬Æ, the Sirius Dressage Saddle guarantees that the horse’s shoulder is able to rotate completely freely. The benefits of this are manifested in a variety of different ways: Horses ridden in the Sirius saddle are more relaxed and content, and riders also report a particularly calm and harmonious sitting sensation. The Sirius Dressage Saddle convinces by its comfortable, deep seat, elegant patent leather trim, a variable selection of Velcro supports, freedom panels and the beneficial V-girth arrangement.

PS Saddle Tree with frt-System¬Æ
Scientific evidence shows that when the horse‚Äôs foreleg touches the ground, the shoulder blade cartilage protrudes further outwards due to the contraction of the muscles behind it, which basically means more space is required.
This is where the frt-System¬Æ (free-rotation-tree-System)comes in: The anatomically formed gullet plate bars of the PS Saddle Tree prevent contact with the shoulder blade cartilage during movement. The horse‚’s shoulder can therefore move freely. Freedom is created precisely where it is required, enabling the horse to move uninhibited.
These saddle panels with optimized wither clearance developed by Passier are excellently suited to horses with wide or particularly sensitive withers. The special way in which they are made means wither contact will be sustainably avoided. As a result of the broader contact surface the saddle fits the horse‚Äôs back perfectly. The panels are available for all newly made Passier saddles.
Lowered Channel Seam
More space is created to the right and left of the horse‚Äôs withers, thanks to the lowering of the channel seam by 2 cm (3/4‚Äù). Contact of the saddle panels to the sides of the horse‚Äôs withers is virtually impossible.
The front third of the channel is especially wide, thus creating more freedom of movement for the horse‚Äôs spine in this area.
Divided Freedom Panels
For horses with particularly sensitive backs Passier has developed divided freedom panels, i.e. panels with optimized wither clearance which are divided at the rear in order to permit even greater freedom for the spine. This channel is wider throughout. The special design also means that these panels are particularly suitable for horses with short backs. These panels are available for all newly made Passier saddles.
Passier‚Äôs exclusive ‚ÄúLifter‚”panels create even more contact area on the horse’s back are perfect for horses with high withers.
With high withers, the saddle needs to be high enough at the front to avoid exerting pressure on the sensitive withers. The panels are designed so that the saddle lies horizontally on the horse’s back and therefore, as well as very good wither clearance, also ensure a good contact area. Furthermore, the short, round form of the panels at the rear exert no pressure. These special features make the Lifter panels very horse-friendly and extra high gussets are no longer required! They are available for all new Passier saddles.
