We have partnered with Hunter/Jumper specialist Nick Karazissis to develop this uniquely technical yet elegant saddle that combines Stübben’s philosophy of communication between the horse and rider with Nick’s “Get Connected” philosophy. The Get Connected is designed to accommodate the classical riding principles. This saddle works with the rider to promote proper posture and communication that gives way to maximum performance. The narrow twist allows a true close contact feel for the rider. Proper balance of the saddle puts the rider in the correct position to provide equitation perfection. Standard velcro blocks gives the rider many options to accommodate for their own individual leg length. You can further leg stability by choosing from three different knee pad designs. We also offer eleven different flap options to create the perfect saddle for you. Not only do we cater to you, we can also fit your horse properly with seven different tree sizes along with many panel options. Let us help you and your horse perform at your full potential.

Riders love the ability to customize their Optimum, not only for custom fit, but for leather/color combos. The Optimum also features a close contact mono flap design, Stübben’s exclusive spring tree and optional Biomex seat that make it the best choice for freedom and comfort for both horse and rider.
“My Stübben Optimum really stays in place, even on my biggest moving horses. I’m impressed with how comfortable my horses are and I find the balance to be perfect.” - Boyd Martin U.S. Olympic Eventer
See an excellent video review of the Zaria Optimum
The Zaria is designed for extreme close contact of the rider's leg with the block built into the outside flap . An optional Biomex seat finishes off this unique blend of comfort and performance. This model is available with foam or wool flocked panels.
The S Roxane is a deep jump seat, square cantle saddle that features matching panels and large blocks in both the front and rear. It offers great security while using softer leather on the layered fronts to provide for a very comfortable ride.
Special pre-formed flaps over the front blocks, together with pre-shaped soft knee padding, provide excellent grip for the rider and freedom of movement for the horse. Our light weight tree together with our special grip leather for the rider combine to meet the high performance requirements of horse and rider. Our newly developed, fully integrated, half panel shape around the horse’s shoulders allows maximum flexibility for the horse and the closest contact possible for the rider.
