The Alta Esceula is well known because it is the saddle of the Spanish Riding School in Jerez.

A saddle for classic dressage and high school. winning the hearts of recreational and dressage riders. due to the subtle galleries, the very good thigh freedom and the feeling of sitting very close to the horse.

 The medium-deep seat puts the rider in the optimal dressage seat without being constricting. The seat is extra softly padded so that hours of riding are not a problem.

The saddle is made with a flexible or rigid tree, the flexible option has a smaller front pommel that allows the rider greater mobility. ,

It can be handcrafted with the comfort pillows in view or concealed. The aim of the panels in view is insuring that the rider's weight is better distributed on the horse's back. These are particularly back-friendly, even for horses with a curved back or a very short contact surface.

The saddle can be single flap/mono or double flap.

In terms of design, there are almost no limits. We also manufacture this saddle individually according to size and design.


 **HOW TO MEASURE THE SEAT most Spanish/Portuguese/Baroque saddles are measured differently to the standard European method - .the is a straight line measured from inside the center/base of the pommel to inside the center/base of the cantle. A choice of three widths. Made in leather with quilted suede seat, exterior knee rolls, and latex-filled panels. Metal stud work on the front of the pommel and rear of the cantle.

    Hello! I just wanted to thank you again for this beautiful saddle! Last weekend I showed my girl at the Pinto National show and we won our English Equitation class and placed in the ribbons in our English Pleasure class as well. I cannot rave about this saddle enough! The quality of the leather and craftsmanship is top notch. It is the most comfortable saddle I’ve ever ridden in. It fits my horse like a glove and just effortlessly seats you in the proper equitation position. Not to mention - it looks pretty dang sexy in the show ring! Thank you again for all your help in designing my saddle - it’s even more than I was hoping for!😊

    Love My Saddle!

    I just wanted to let you know that I absolutely love love love my saddle! Its beautiful and it turned out better than I ever dreamed! It’s already made such a huge difference for me and for Gus in our riding. It fits him like a glove and he goes so well in it. There is no shifting or sliding around and I feel so secure in it. It’s so nice to not have to feel like I need to keep readjusting the saddle as I’m riding. It’s the absolute best fitting saddle (probably the only saddle that’s ever truly fit) I’ve ever put on him in the seven and a half years I’ve had him. I can’t thank you enough for everything and all the time that you spent helping me and getting this saddle ordered for me! I attached a pic of us from our lesson tonight! Hopefully I can get some better pictures of him in the saddle over the weekend!

     I want to say I love my saddle and couldn’t be happier with it after a long struggle, I now have a horse who no longer has a sore back or shoulders.

    I would like to order a  San Jorge bridle.....         Laura Lee Crook
