As its name suggests, the folks at Custom Saddlery say this unique saddle is designed to eclipse all other dressage saddles on the market. When developing the Icon Eclipse, Custom Saddlery said they combined all the best features of their other dressage saddles, resulting in a top-line dressage performance saddle that offers unparalleled comfort for both horse and rider.

The Eclipse is designed using a special tree shape with a unique panel customized specifically to free the shoulder for best movement. The Eclipse is a close contact saddle with a monoflap design allowing the rider to be 50% closer to the horse. It also has a deep, soft seat with a lower pommel and a narrow twist that appeals to a variety of body shapes.
The long external knee rolls gently guide the rider’s legs with comfort, control and perfect balance, providing the best communication between horse and rider. The Eclipse is in the Icon saddle price range, and comes with a saddle cover as well as the Custom Saddlery exclusive, no-obligation 10-day trial period.
Custom Saddlery endorses a host of dressage superstars such as US Olympic Dressage veterans, Steffen Peters, Heather Blitz, Sue Blinks, and Shannon Dueck. In addition, Tina Konyot, Kathleen Raine, Lauren Sammis, Caroline Roffman, Endel Ots and David Wightman have all experienced the benefits of performing in a Custom Saddle.
