Albion SLk Ultima Saddle Endorsed and influenced by world-class champion Klaus Balkenhol, the SLK Ultima model has remained one of the best-fitting saddles for both top professionals and adult amateurs alike. The unique design of the seat, twist, and thigh area allows the rider's leg to position close to the horse, without additional bulk. The Albion SLK saddle line offers a variety of tree sizes, suitable for the Baroque-style horsebreeds, as well as the refined warmblood type, including our American thoroughbred.

Albion Brentina Saddle offers the rider a straighter leg position and closer seat to feel the aids correctly. With a wide variety of tree sizes, panel shapes, flap placement, and seat options, the Albion SLK saddle line is versatile enough to fit any type horse! At Hobson's Choice Saddlery, we have had great success in saddle-fitting Friesian horses, Icelandic horses, Lusitanos, Lipizzans, and Andalusians in the Albion SLK, Albion SL, and Albion Brentina dressage saddle. *Visit our Dressage Saddles page to view Albion saddles.
