Whether commencing your jumping career or competing at the highest level, enjoy exceptional balance and comfort. Broad and tapered panels offer tremendous support for the horse’s back, enabling greater freedom of movement.

Expert's view

I've recently had a few very successful fits with the Caprilli CC. The adjustability in the width and with the easy change risers allows us to refine the fit  and make it perfect for the horse. Rider's have commented that they find the Cair System allows them a close feel to the horse. This, combined with the open seat and adjustable knee roll allows for free range of movement over fences and a good sense of security.

One customer in particular ordered this saddle in the Luxe leather in brown. It is beautiful. The Luxe leather is so lovely and grippy,  it looks and feels like a high quality saddle. If you were thinking of getting a Caprilli, I'd really recommend looking at the Luxe leather option.

Product FAQs

Would you recommend this saddle for horses with a flat back?

Yes, this saddle can be a brilliant choice for horses with a flatter back but they suit a wide range of back shapes. The changeable gullet plate and Easy Change riser system in the saddle means they can be quickly adjusted to suit a variety of different shaped horses, and keep being changed to your horses shape as it changes with the seasons. The shape of the front of the panel also makes this a good choice for horses with bigger shoulders as it's design sits the saddle behind the shoulder allowing free movement for the horse.
