Zaldi Dressage Saddles
Zaldi's master saddle makers have been manufacturing saddles for more than 100 years. Specialist craftsmen have been recruited and trained in the best traditional methods while incorporating modern materials and technology.
The saddle tree has been technically developed in conjunction with scientific research by the Foundation for the Investigation and Development in Transport and Energy. Champion riders from every discipline also had input in the development of these saddles. As a result, each saddle tree type is designed specifically for each equestrian discipline. In addition, there are varying designs for shape, weight distribution, seat depths, widths, lengths as well as materials.
TrekHorse USA has nine Zaldi dressage saddles to offer their customers. These are all custom handmade saddles from Spain. They are, of course, made from the finest European leathers. Zaldi saddle tree has a 10 year guarantee in normal conditions. Options available are the tree, stirrup bar, seat, flaps, panels, knee rolls, girth straps and leather color. Due to Covid, the delivery time may increase.
