Like no other dressage saddle, the Genesis Special model is oriented towards the principles of classical equitation. The saddle was designed on the basis of the Tristan Special model. The saddle seat is equipped with our back-friendly “Biomex” technology, which places the rider in the center of balance without restricting him or placing him against the horse’s movement, and has an extremely short panel. These features facilitate the rider’s direct aids with back and legs, and provide for maximum contact between horse and leg. The effects of the direct aids are supported by the flap girths which fasten the flaps close to the horse. The Genesis Special is used daily and recommended by Catherine Haddad, the well known student of Willi Schultheis.
