Fairfax Harry Meade Monoflap XC

Developed with European Silver medallist Harry Meade to give a really close contact feeling between horse and rider. The specially-designed slimline foam panel has undergone extensive development and rigorous testing using Pliance pressure mapping and gait analysis. Scientific trials show that the pressure readings are comparable to a well-fitting flocked saddle and the horse is able to move and jump as freely as it would in a traditional saddle with wool flocking.
The Harry Meade Monoflap XC benefits from the following design details:
  • The unique design and placement of the billets on this monoflap allows your saddle fitter four girthing options to fine tune the fit to your horse’s shape and movement 
  • Two choices of changeable gullet bar to allow for fluctuations in the horse’s shape throughout the season or following time off.
  • Broad channel for spine clearance, especially at the area around T10-13 which Fairfax research has shown to play a key role in the horse’s movement. We have already had a scientific paper published on the effect of saddle pressure in this area on dressage horses.
  • Deep, contoured foam under the tree points to give support and stability at the sides of the wither area.
  • Smaller thigh and calf block and a more open seat than the Andrew Hoy XC saddle, which provides the rider with a feeling of more ‘space’ in the saddle.
  • Covered with luxurious full-grain leather.
  • Made in Walsall, England by highly skilled Master Saddlers.
This saddle was designed and tested using pressure mapping and gait analysis.

Commissioned by the BEF to improve the comfort of Team GB horses during the long journey to Rio, this headcollar is based on two and half years’ of scientific research.

It features the Fairfax headpiece which significantly reduces pressure and enables the horse’s swallow mechanism to operate comfortably when eating & drinking during travel.
The Rio Headcollar is:
  • Cushioned with pressure-absorbing Prolite on the headpiece, cheek pieces and noseband
  • 30% lighter than most other travel headcollars generally used
  • Hand made in our Walsall factory from Sedgwick's first selection leather using quality brass fittings
An engraved brass nameplate is included with each headcollar.  Please send an email to sales@daviddyersaddles.co.uk or call 0208 308 0500 to let us know the name you would like engraved.

Fairfax Spencer Monoflap Dressage Saddle

Olympic medallist Spencer Wilton has been working with Fairfax for more than two years to refine and perfect this model that is stamped with his personal touch.  It features a new tree design that offers a roomier seat, plus a unique concealed, moveable knee block.
The Spencer Monoflap benefits from all the features common to every saddle in the Performance range, plus the following performance-enhancing details:
  • The seat is more ‘forward’ in order to precisely align the rider more ‘in’ over the horse’s centre of balance.A unique knee block that is hidden in the monoflap design. The choice of two sizes, plus the ability to adjust their position gives incredible flexibility of support.
  • The seat is wider and more ‘open’ than the Gareth model. This will suit riders who prefer more room in the seat, or those who like a more relaxed dressage position.
  • The design and placement of the billets gives the saddle fitter two adjustment options to fine-tune the fit to the horse’s shape and movement.
  • Contrast stitching on the flaps and skirt.
The Fairfax Spencer is available with longer or shorter custom flap options, depending on your leg length.

The Fairfax Andrew Hoy XC saddle features a two-part panel that prevents the front of the saddle from being pulled down and in. The main part of the panel bears the rider's weight and the front part under the rider's knee is separated to de-restrict the shoulder girdle muscles. The adjustable blocks under the rider’s knee enables the muscles that activate the shoulder to move freely. They come in two depths that can quickly be adapted to suit the horse. If the horse has an asymmetrical shoulder development, you can use the shallower block on the larger shoulder to enable the rider to sit squarely.

* Hand made in Walsall by highly skilled Master Saddlers, using selected Italian calf skins and top grade English butt leather changeable gullet width available in N/M to XW/XXW

The Performance Girth

Kept secret to give a competitive advantage to Team GBR

Increases the horse’s performance by:
• Dramatically reducing pressure
• Significantly increasing range of movement
• Eliminating gait asymmetry
The only girth to have been tested during its development in conjunction with the BEF World Class Programme
During squad training, Centaur Biomechanics gait analysis was used to test the effect of the girth on the horses’ performance.
“We recorded up to 33% improvement in forelimb protraction and general range of motion of every elite horse we tested” *
*results were compared to the horses’ own girth Russell Guire of Centaur Biomechanics

Abstract from The Veterinary Journal

The Fairfax Girth is a luxury item and needs maintaining well.  The girth should be well cleaned with warm water after use and fed with leather feeder after every use.  Glycerin and oil should not be used as they seal the sweat into the leather and this is what causes the leather to crack over a period of time.

The Performance Girth - Click here to watch the video

Narrow Gauge for horses/ponies with less than 20cm between front legs

Designed specifically to fit those horses (and most ponies) with a narrower rib cage.
To check whether a horse falls into the narrow gauge category, measure the flat area between the horse’s elbows.
If the measurement is less than 20cm then the narrow gauge version is needed to ensure a perfect fit between the front legs.

Developed and handmade in the UK
This breastplate is based on scientific research and is designed to:
  • Prevent the saddle slipping back when needed
  • Work without restricting the horse’s breathing
  • Allow the horse to maintain his natural jumping action or shape over a fence
The Peformance Breastplate was developed using Pliance Pressure mapping and Centaur Biomechanics gait analysis.
Our testing into breastplate designs showed that using a breastplate has a significant negative effect on the horse’s action as he jumps.

When a breastplate is attached to a saddle and then the girth, it forms, in effect, a ‘cage’ around the horse’s shoulder apparatus that restricts his movement over a jump.

The highest pressures were consistently seen at the moment when the horse is at the peak of take-off and its shoulder is in its most forward position. However, biomechanical analysis showed that the whole jump is adversely affected by the breastplate from this point onwards:
  • The shape of the jump from take-off to landing (the trajectory) is shortened (see Testing & Design)
  • the horse’s landing is steeper
  • the horse’s hind legs are “cramped” in the landing phase, with the joints flexing more in an attempt to clear the fence
Furthermore, both over-flexing and landing more steeply cause increased wear and tear on the horse’s limbs and joints.
Scientific trials have shown that the Fairfax Performance Breastplate does not interfere with the horse’s natural jumping action or shape over the fence.
