Hermès Allegro saddle

Hermès Allegro, jumping saddle, flat seat.
A descendant of the Steinkraus and developed with Hermès partner riders Pilar Lucrecia Cordon, Lillie Keenan and Daniel Bluman, the Hermès Allegro saddle offers a forward balance enabling the rider to accompany the horse’s every movement. Perfectly suited to riders who like to be out of the saddle when jumping, it facilitates the two-point position characteristic of North American riding. – Hermès
