Prestige Galileo Dressage Saddle
The Galileo features the
"open seat" design from Prestige. A flatter, yet
still deep seat, gives you room to move, without
locking you into position as so many deep seated
saddles do. Moderately large knee rolls. Calfskin
leather reinforced with full grain leather at
wear points, makes this a very comfortable and durable
saddle. Not for the short legged rider, the Galileo's
flaps extend back under the riders leg for just
the right contact and support. A wonderfully balanced
FREE Prestige stirrup leathers with purchase
Want fittings for your new Prestige? We also carry Prestige Chafeless Elastic End Girths and
Prestige Non-Stretch Stirrup Leathers.
Test Ride Available!. Most of our in-stock Prestige saddles are available for test
rides. Please inquire.
For the care of your Prestige leather, we recommend Prestige Leather Care Kit to keep the leather clean and very well conditioned.
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. 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.
Prestige Galileo Knee Block:
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.
