Now available with DP's new Western Dressage Seat! Giving you the ultimate Dressage position with a narrower twist and set-back Fenders. This new seat upgrade encourages a correct rider position, with a narrow twist and balanced seat it is also more comfortable for a lot of riders. A balanced seat requires that you sit lightly on your seat bones, lightly enough that your pelvis is free to flex and roll with your horse’s movement. We did our very best to help you find this balance with this modern upgrade!
