This model, created in collaboration with Adelinde Cornelissen, bears the signature of the Dutch champion, twice winner of the World Cup and Olympic medal winner. Tested at length by the champion who gave it her name and by many other important professional riders, this saddle has demonstrated that it considerably improves both the horse’s gait and the rider’s seat. The front rolls with Velcro allow riders to choose the knee support that is best suited to their needs. The Adelinde model is always supplied with two sets of knee rolls, a smaller one and a larger one, so that the saddle can be customised to suit the style of riding. The larger rolls help the rider maintain a more stable position in the saddle, while the set of smaller rolls is designed for riders who already have this type of seat.
The standard model is produced with a deep seat, but an open version is also available on request. It is also possible to order the Adelinde saddle with a narrow twist, more suitable for small thin horses that require a greater leg contact.
As the panels on this saddle are not attached to the under-flap, they leave the front billets free: the rider can choose to position them on the flap or to use them, once they have been extracted from the front holes, in direct contact with the saddle pad and with the horse's ribs. It has been realised that working with billets in direct contact with the horse's ribs favours a greater length of stride.
At the rear of the tree there are double holes for attaching the panels and it is a simple operation to fix the screws on the outermost holes and open the channel one cm wider (very useful in the case of horses with a wide or exposed spine).

Like with the Elena saddle, the basic version of this model has an open seat and supports the posture of the rider with an anatomically formed flap and an exposed knee-roll. The Vittoria has been specially designed for riders who prefer the single flap and, in this case, the front billet is always free. Available in the basic version with an open seat and, on request, with a deep seat. For both versions it is possible to choose the option with a narrow twist.**
*All dressage saddles are available in the sizes 16/17/18 inches. All our saddles have fibre padded panels and can be adjusted individually to the horse's back.At the rear of the tree there are two additional holes for positioning the panels to the outside. In that way, the channel gets broader by 1 cm, what is very useful in the case of horses with a wide or exposed spine.
