changeable gullet barsChangeable gullet bar

A changeable gullet bar allows you or your saddle fitter to modify the width of the saddle’s gullet to suit the horse’s wither profile as the horse changes shape with either exercise, muscle development, maturity or rest. There are 8 options in the short S-bar and 7 in the long R-bar.

Campaign for Real Wool100% British wool flocking

Wool is a natural fibre and provides superior softness and comfort for the horse because it moulds and settles quickly, giving optimum panel contact with the horse’s back. Two reinforced flocking slots make it easy for your saddle fitter to do any necessary adjustments to fit on-site

Kent & Masters Dressage Moveable Block saddles (S-Series and Original) offer girthing solutions to fine-tune the fit of your saddle.

Dressage Girthing Neutral Position

Your saddle fitter will always begin girthing in the neutral position with the moveable billet attached behind the point.

Dressage Girthing Billet moved to point

To increase saddle stability if the saddle slips forward, the saddle fitter has the option of removing the Velcro thigh block, moving the billet (girth strap) onto the point, passing it through the keeper at the bottom…

Replace the block

…and replacing the block on top.

DO NOT pass the strap under the block and through the keeper

If the billet (girth strap) is behind the point, DO NOT pass the strap under the block and through the keeper. This may cause saddle instability.
