The LaBona DRESSAGE II is a slightly revised version of the popular Dressage in soft cowhide or suede. The extremely flat side panels offer close contact with the horse. Riding with the pad, you can slightly feel the horses body heat and it gives you the feeling of "riding bareback", but with more comfort. The leather is wonderfully soft and offers very good grip. The seat and pommels are carefully hand-filled with synthetic wool, which provides a softer feel and greater resilience as natural wool.
Large nylon straps are worked into the side panels to ensure that the pad retains its beautiful shape for a long time. These straps do not run over the back, so that punctual pressure is excluded. The straps are nylon straps covered with soft leather. The underside is made of a soft wool felt. The cushion channel is slightly wider than on the previous Dressage. The two pads in the contact area form a channel over the horse's spine so that pressure on the spinous processes can be avoided. There are two easily accessible openings on the underside through which the pad can be re-padded, even by hand. The pad has a slight V-cut in the withers area.

- There is no stirrup attachment
- Can be used with or without a saddle blanket, depending on preference

Material top side: Leather or suede

NOTE: Hard, rough or dull surfaces, zips, Velcro, seams or rubber on riding clothes (including boots and chaps) will cause abrasion over time. If damage caused by material incompatibilities appears on the pad that goes beyond normal signs of use, the item of clothing or equipment should no longer be used in conjunction with the pad. Damage caused by material incompatibility is not a reason for complaint. Leather is a natural product and may show colour variations. A so-called pilling effect may occur on the felt over time. These are also no grounds for complaint.
