  • 4. Seat  And  Flap  Position  A  deep  seat  is  used  in  dressage  to  hold  the  rider  in   position,  because  a  flat  seat  is  used  for  jumping  to   provide  freedom  of  movement.  A  long,  straight  flap  indicates  a  straight  up-­‐and-­‐down   leg  position,  as  in  dressage,  because  eventing  and   jumping  require  a  shorter  flap  that  tilts  forward  to   allow  for  the  two-­‐point  jumping  position. 4Sunday, June 27, 2010
  • 5. All  Purpose  English  Saddles  These  saddles  are  also  known  as   general  purpose  English  saddles.  They  have  a  deep  seat.  The  medium  to  long  flaps  are   slightly  forward.  An  all  purpose  English  saddle  is   used  in  entry  and  intermediate  level   equitation  and  jumping  classes,   trail  riding  and  schooling. 5Sunday, June 27, 2010
  • 6. Close  Contact  English  Saddles  A  close  contact  English   saddle  has  a  relatively  flat   seat,  occasionally  with   knee  rolls.  The  flaps  are  well-­‐ forward.  These  are  used  in  hunt   seat  equitation,  hunter-­‐ jumper  classes,  fox   hunting  and  the  jumping   phase  of  eventing. 6Sunday, June 27, 2010
  • 7. Hunter  Jumper  English  Saddles  Hunter  jumper  English  saddles  have  a  moderately   deep  seat.  .  They  also  have   medium  flaps  that  are   somewhat  forward.  These  saddles  are  used   in  hunter-­‐jumper   classes,  fox  hunting   and  eventing. 7Sunday, June 27, 2010
  • 8. Dressage  Saddles  Girth  placement  is  more  forward   than  on  other  English  saddles.  The  deep  seat  on  a  dressage   saddle  positions  the  body  more   forward.  The  flaps  are  long  and  straight  up   and  down.  These  are  used  only  in  dressage   competitions  and  training. 8Sunday, June 27, 2010
  • 9. Eventing  English  Saddles  In  an  eventing  English  saddle,  the  rider’s  weight  is   displaced  over  a  wider  area  of  the  horse’s  back  to   prevent  fatigue.  The  saddle  has  a  long,  relatively  flat  seat  with  extra   padding.  The  flaps  are  wider  and  thicker  than  other  English   saddles.  They  are  used  in  the  equitation,  jumping  and  cross   country  aspects  of  eventing. 9Sunday, June 27, 2010
