I have visited the Passier factory in Hannover/Germany several times and had the opportunity to see every individual manufacturing process.
Passier has been the sponsor for a lot of olympic level riders. From Kristina Broering Sprehe, who is riding her magnificent Hanoverian stallion 'Desperados FRH' to Ingrid Klimke, one of the world’s best event riders. Passier offers a large variety of panels shapes and designs to accommodate different breeds from the high withered thoroughbred to the short backed pony.
During my years of working on Passier saddles I have always been really impressed with their PS tree (Passier's leather tree) as well as the consistent superior quality of their saddles. Passier is the only saddle company in the world that makes a leather tree.
Passier trees are slightly flexible making them very adaptable to the horse's back. The wither plate can be adjusted multiple times; it can be custom fit to your horse's changing conformation or refit to a new horse. Click here to learn more about this unique tree and its history.
