The Montura Espanola (Spanish saddle) has evolved into the elegant and comfortable Silla Alta Escuela now used by the The Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art in Jerez de la Frontera.


The Alta Escuela saddle

Colours: grey (gris) or tan (avellana) are standard.

We recommend the grey which is in "cuero vuelto" suede and does not slip as much as the leather shiny side. However both are of course excellent.


The Silla Alta Escuela is designed with the best leather materials to give extra comfort and control, while not sacrificing the traditional characteristics of the Spanish saddle. There are two sizes: grande - adult, or mediana - junior (suitable for smaller individuals.) Choose between the big tree width W or standard tree width N.
