  • The Classic GPD offers the same comfort and luxury as Fairfax's Classic GP, but straighter-cut flaps make this the perfect choice for the rider who likes to do a bit of everything but whose main interests are flatwork, schooling and dressage. 
  • Comfort for the horse is provided by the fitting features developed as a result of Fairfax’s extensive research and testing for the development of our Performance saddles. 
  • The Fairfax Classic GPD benefits from all the features common to every Classic saddle (see design details below), plus the following comfort-enhancing details.
  • A straighter-cut flap than the GP saddle means that the rider can comfortably drop their stirrups and ride with a longer leg position which is more suitable for dressage and schooling activities
  • A comfortable and supportive seat allow is the rider to get the most from their hours in the saddle
  • The design and placement of the billets gives four girthing options to fine-tune the fit to the horse’s shape and movement
  • Super-soft full grain hide on the seat
  • The stitched-on knee roll provides superior support for the rider’s leg
  • Deep cushioning over the knee rolls ensures the support is softer and more accommodating for a variety of leg lengths. This can prove particularly useful for those who intend to ride with different stirrup lengths in the GP saddle (i.e. hacking or dressage)
  • Two rows of ghost stitching on the knee roll allow it to contour easily around the block, allowing the leg to rest in the most comfortable and effective position for the chosen stirrup length
  • The 100% British wool panels are lined with a layer of Prolite for proven pressure distribution, while still allowing for traditional re-flocking on site.
  • Use & Care:  Apply the Rapide Leather Gel supplied with this saddle before the first use. Re-apply Leather Gel at least once a week to dry the leather. 
  • Do Not use spray soap, glycerin saddle soap or neatsfoot oil on this saddle. 
  • Always allow leather to dry naturally (do NOT use external heat sources).
  • Check regularly that all four gullet bolts and two panel screws remain tight. 
  • Never use wet tack.
  • Changeable Gullet: R-Bar  N/M to XW/XXW
