Prestige Venus K Dressage Saddle
The Venus K is a mono flap dressage saddle that assures a fantastic contact with the horse and has a new charming design. The skirt is padded and the border of the flap is re-inforced. The seat is particularly soft giving an excellent level of comfort, and also new technical panels without stitching thus reducing any feeling under your leg. The new anatomic knee-rolls are medium. Large knee rolls are available by special order.
Available in seat size 16", 17", 18" and tree size 29-37. Custom options include: Tobacco color; Short Billets; and Short or Long Flap. Please call for availability on custom saddles and to learn more about our "Loaner Program" (see bottom of the page). Allow extra delivery time for special order saddles of 6-12 weeks.
Test Ride available. Most of our in-stock Prestige saddles are available for test ride.
Prestige saddle trees can be adjusted by certain authorized Prestige dealers. VTO is authorized to make these adjustments. We can adjust a tree up or down by 2cm at a time. We suggest that you test ride a saddle that we have available in a tree size close to what you think that you will need. Then if we need to adjust a saddle that we have in stock for you, we can do that. The charge for changing a saddle tree is non-refundable, but it is applicable to the purchase of a new saddle. In other words, we don't charge you to adjust the tree on a new saddle if you purchase it. But we do charge you for the adjustment if you do not purchase the saddle. Please call us at 800-506-5344 for details on this program. We can also adjust the trees on any Prestige saddle, not just new saddles.
Note about tree sizes: The following is VTO's opinion: Prestige saddles are available in 3 seat sizes. The 16" fits like a 17". The 17" fits like a 17.5" and is by far the most common size. The 18" fits like an 18". For tree sizes, 33cm and 34cm are considered "medium". For a saddle that will be used on a variety of horses, 34cm seems to fit most horses very well. 32cm is for a horse with withers and a medium to narrow back. It will fit the typical TB type horse well. We have rarely seen a horse that will take a 31cm, and we have never fit a horse narrower than 31cm. 35cm is considered "wide". 36cm and 37cm are "extra wide" and we have fit several horses for these sizes.
In addition to our test ride program, we also offer "loaner" saddles if you want to custom order a Prestige saddle. Custom saddles take 6-8 weeks. With a loaner saddle, you won't have to be without a Prestige saddle while you wait. Customizations include short or long flaps, extra Dees, different leather, extra forward, different color etc.
