The Genesis dressage saddle features many functional and visual innovations. Like the jumping saddle Genesis CS, also Genesis CL has divided panels that offer an enhanced position on the horse’s back with excellent clearance for the horse’s spine. Moreover, the whole design of model Genesis focuses on the close contact of rider and horse. Thus the new dressage saddle features a short front panel rib which results in an optimal position of the sweat flap with unprecedented proximity to the horse. A distinctive feature of the CL model is the high and very soft knee roll that follows the thigh, but never restricts it and thus offers sufficient freedom for the position of the rider’s leg. Moreover, the special guiding of the billets when the girth is tightened practically guarantees the effect of a mono-flap saddle. The very deep seat which does not restrict the rider in any way is already a feature of the Maestoso range. Also this saddle is made from full grain cow hide.
