From the Passier website:
“The Optimum Mono Dressage Saddle is a special variation of the popular Optimum Dressage Saddle.... (read more) As a monoflap saddle it ensures that the rider sits particularly close to the horse and has even more influence. Thus the Optimum Mono ensures a very special riding experience close to the horse. The thigh supports are positioned on top of the saddle flaps and make it particularly easy for the rider to keep the legs in the correct position.”
"Passier is 'the spirit of riding since 1867’. The Passier products of today are the result of more than 140 years of experience. A lot has changed since the founding of G. Passier & Sohn, especially in riding. Nonetheless, Passier saddles, bridles, and accessories are still around. And that's a good sign. Because it is proof that quality combined with tradition succeeds."
**The fit of every saddle is unique. Even if the makers, models, and sizes are the same between two saddles, the fit may be different. Adjustments and customizations may have been made, or models may have changed over the years. In the case of hand-made saddles, no two saddlers' work is exactly alike.
