Cachet Dressage Saddle

Sharon Peters on her VeragoDebbie Witty, the owner and president of Trilogy Dressage Saddles and Performance Saddlery, has spent years helping top riders such as George Williams, Guenter Seidel, Courtney King-Dye, Shannon Peters and Debbie McDonald with their saddle needs. After recognising a need in the marketplace for a saddle range that addresses more of the horse and rider’s needs, Debbie developed her line of Trilogy Saddles.

"It is extremely rewarding to have the opportunity to build and provide horses and their riders with a saddle that generates more comfort, makes the rider more effective and enhances the team’s performance," Debbie said.

Trilogy Dressage Saddles are built in England by some of the most experienced craftsmen in the world. They feature a british tree made of laminated Beechwood and a specially tanned hide from England that offers the rider an elastic broken-in feel. "Our designs are effective for both horse and rider. The leather is grippy and already broken in for the closest contact," Debbie said.

Cardanel Saddles Ltd exclusively manufactures two saddles for the Trilogy Dressage Range: The Debbie McDonald and the Verago.



The Debbie McDonald Dressage Saddle series gives riders two choices:

  • The Debbie McDonald features a flatter, more open seat, narrower seat and straighter leg.
  • The Debbie Special is designed specifically for the petite rider.

"The Debbie Special was developed so that the saddle would accommodate a rider that is physically unable to establish their position in a regular size saddle because there is just too much leather and saddle surrounding them. Instead, everything is tailored to suite the smaller in stature rider so that they can effectively put their leg on the horse, shift their seat bones and communicate clearly to the horse without the bulk of the saddle getting in the way," Debbie said.

The Verago Dressage Saddle is for the rider who prefers a deep seat with a narrow twist and a well-supported seat bone area
