DP Saddlery El Campo Baroque by Rolf Janzen
The "El Campo by Rolf Janzen" was built in close cooperation with Rolf Janzen. Rolf Janzen is a trainer for classical Dressage and Working Equitation for Horses and Rider in Germany. This saddle combines beauty and function to create a saddle that puts you in a balanced seat for arena work and the ultimate comfort out on the trail for hours.
Resulting out of this cooperation is a saddle, specially developed for the discipline Working Equitation, that is also well suited for Dressage training as well as long hours in the saddle like trail riding. With the fully adjustable gullet, the variable 3-Point Billets, the anatomically shaped wool flocked panels as well as the velcro knee rolls are making this saddle so simple to adjust to each rider and horse combination. The seat padding is extremely comfortable and you won't want to get off.
The unique continuously adjustable gullet width is revolutionary in its ability to help solve saddle fitting problems to your horse. With just a turn of the Allen Wrench, you can adjust the gullet by fractions of an inch to customize the fit to your horse.
The El Campo Standard Saddles are made with classical dressage training in mind, for the rider seeking for more lightness and balance, but who does not want to compromise being able to take this saddle out for hours on the trails. The seat is luxuriously comfortable.
El Campo Saddles are built on flexible Ultra Flex Saddle trees, made out of flexible fiberglass and reinforced with Carbon Fiber along the spine. Another advantage is that the traditional wool flocked panels are only attached in the front and back of the tree, to provide maximum comfort for the horse in turns and while bending. To ease the pressure that is normally applied to the spine, the panels give slightly, so the spine doesn't have to. When panels are completely attached from front to back, it would be the spine of the horse, that would have to give to pressure. It lets the horse move freely, and encourages proper bend and freedom of the shoulder. The anatomically shaped panels also help balance the saddle and can be flocked by a professional saddle fitter to your horse if needed.
The gullet is fully adjustable, featuring a gear system with a simple Allen Wrench that comes with the saddle. The continuously adjustable gullet width can be adjusted by fractions of an inch with just a twist of the Allen Wrench that inserts into a discreet slot located on top of the pommel. No strength is required to make the change. There is a five year warranty on the Ultra Flex tree and a three year overall warranty on the saddle except for wear and tear. The gullet width is standard 6 cm.
The long billets attach to the girth forming a V and can be used with any dressage style girth. These saddles are handmade with quality black tooled North American leather and an extremely comfy softly padded seat.
