Henri de Rivel Galia Close Contact Saddle


If you’re in the market for a new saddle, HDR has several quality options at smart prices for multiple english disciplines. 

The HDR Galia is a close contact saddle and is made to give support over fences for the rider while providing comfort for the horse.

At first glance, the Galia impresses with white contrast signature stitching and soft, supple leather for increased grip. Very forward flaps accommodate short stirrup lengths at high speeds over fences and riders with long hip-thigh measurements. 

A cushioned seat, molded knee rolls and adjustable knee and thigh blocks provide the needed support over fences and comfort for long schooling sessions. Reinforced billets and lower flap area guards against wear to increase the durability for your saddle. The flap guard is available in a contrasting milk chocolate color against the dark brown color. Available in Havana, you can expect this color to resemble a dark chocolate and will compliment most coat colors. 

The Galia is available in seat sizes 16.5”, 17”, 17.5” and 18” with regular or wide gullet widths. The seat sizes are true to size for accurate dimensions, so your saddle comes fitted as expected. 

You can rest assured if there are any underlying problems with your saddle’s tree as we provide a lifetime warranty on the injection molded polymer. 

A logo-ed elasticized saddle cover is included with every saddle to protect your investment in between rides. Adding a personal touch is a cinch with the 2inch name plate and hardware readily included and attached to the saddle for your convenience.
