Fairfax Classic Jump Cupped Flap

A traditional two-flap saddle designed for the competitive rider looking to achieve a closer connectivity with their horse when jumping. While the rider appreciates the enhanced comfort and luxury, the horse benefits from all the research and development that went in to our Performance saddles.

  • A precisely aligned seat to balance the rider over the fence and enable a close contact feel with the horse
  • Billet placement, including a balance strap, provides four girthing options to fine-tune the fit to the horse’s shape and movement
  • Super-soft full grain hide on the seat
  • Stitched-on knee roll is positioned to provide superior support for the rider’s leg in the shorter jumping length
  • Larger thigh block than the Classic Jump Plain Flap
  • The deeply-cushioned, soft knee rolls are able to accommodate a variety of upper leg lengths and provide optimum support and stability over the fence and on the flat
