Prestige and Dover Team Up to Offer New Jumping Saddle

Horse Tack Press Release

Offering all the technical advantages and fine detailing that Prestige has become known for around the globe, the new Dover Close Contact Saddle by Prestige has recently made its debut in the 2004-2005 Dover Saddlery Catalog. Made in Italy, the new saddle incorporates a high-tech carbon fiber tree, which can be altered up to 4 cm to accommodate a new horse or a developing horse. The superb Italian craftsmanship that is synonymous with Prestige, is also very evident in the new Dover Close Contact. The durable yet comfortable, Italian grained leather is complimented by a smooth calfskin seat and kneepads which augment grip and security for the rider.

Designed in collaboration with Dover, this new jumping saddle boasts Latex formed panels that allow for close contact between horse and rider. Offering excellent recovery, these Latex panels also maximize comfort and fit for a variety of horses. The Dover Close Contact by Prestige offers modest triangle front knee blocks and small rear thigh blocks delivering security for the rider while limiting interference that can often affect an active leg. The Prestige signature of the Dover Close Contact is the rawhide cantle which protects against nicks. Available exclusively at Dover Saddlery, the Dover Close Contact by Prestige is available in 3 tree sizes 32cm, 33cm, and 34cm as well as seat sizes 16, 17, and 18. It is affordably priced at $2900.
