Super stylish, quality close contact sytle saddle

Based in Walsall, Harry Dabbs saddles have been making stylish saddles for over 40 years. At Sheepham saddles, we love Harry Dabbs saddles for their high quality build and their close contact feel and we always have quite a few in stock.

Harry Dabbs Performance Panels

  • Models with the performance panel designed to leave the back a fraction sooner keeping the lumbar region free and enabling the horse to move more freely.
  • Performance panel also frees up the trapezius muscle to aid forelimb movement – excellent for horses with big shoulders

Harry Dabbs focus on using the right tree shape for your horse, manufacturing a large selection of laminated Spring trees to suit the majority of horse breeds and types from Native cobs to Thoroughbreds. Every tree is guaranteed by Harry Dabbs for the life of the saddle.

Dressage Saddles

There is a large range of styles to suit all riders and horses:-

The Adelina has close contact flaps allowing for greater communication between horse and rider.

The Bellissima has a self-adjusting Girth System, by adding an additional web point to the tree, this helps to stabilizes the balance and the swing allows the billet to find the most natural girthing line.

The Cavalina has a low cantle design helping to create balance in the saddle and suited to young riders who like more freedom in the seat.

The eden lends itself to ‘dipped backed’ horses, helping to maximise the weight distribution. This is reflected in the deep seat, giving far more security and encouraging a long, classically correct leg position. The narrow twist of this saddle is also a favourite.

The Eloquence is the most popular dressage model in this range for whatever level you are riding in. It offers a medium deep seat, giving stability without restriction and excellent centre of balance. Knee rolls are of medium depth

The Kur features a lower cantle, giving a flatter seat than most dressage saddles which allows the rider more freedom in the seat if preferred.

The Optima’s key features include a knee-roll which can be placed to an exact position for the rider allowing greater flexibility whilst still giving maximum support.

General purpose saddle

There are 3 main  GP style to suit all riders and horses:-

The GP Event saddle is our most widely distributed general/all purpose saddle. Whether riding for pleasure or combining flatwork and jumping the GP Event will accommodate it all. Thigh blocks come as standard to help position your leg.

The GPD is the most versatile general purpose saddle. The main feature of the GPD is the straight-cut flap which aligns well cosmetically as a show saddle and also provides support when riding dressage.

The GPX is our foundation all purpose saddle lending itself to a multitude of disciplines a popular choice for taller riders. It features a medium depth seat as do all saddles in the GP range though it has a slightly more forward knee position than the GP Event, allowing a longer hip-to-knee measurement for the taller rider.
