The Genesis dressage saddle features many functional and visual innovations. Genesis CL has divided panels that offer an enhanced position on the horse’s back with excellent clearance for the horse’s spine. Moreover, the whole design of model Genesis focuses on the close contact of rider and horse. Thus the new dressage saddle features a short front panel rib which results in an optimal position of the sweat flap with unprecedented proximity to the horse. A distinctive feature of the CL model is the high and very soft knee roll that follows the thigh, but never restricts it and thus offers sufficient freedom for the position of the rider’s leg. Moreover, the special guiding of the billets when the girth is tightened practically guarantees the effect of a mono-flap saddle. The very deep seat which does not restrict the rider in any way is already a feature of the Maestoso range. Also this saddle is made from full grain cow hide.

BIOMEX saddle seat Technology Stübben has collaborated with the BIOMEX Technology Development Centre of Klinik Gut, a Swiss Hospital for Orthopedics, Accident Care and Sports Medicine based in St. Moritz. Combined with feedback from professional riders, we have developed an innovative saddle seat which promotes correct posture, thus relieving the rider’s back from too much pressure. False posture leads to an increased axial pressure on the back and furthermore to dorsal problems. Riders complain about occasional back pain, i.e. 23.8% experience pain while riding, and 55.2% after riding. The BIOMEX Saddle Seat Technology may help prevent back pain.
Most models of Stübben saddles can be purchased in the de Luxe version. The saddles have an additional, very soft patch of leather on the flaps. This additional coverage, in addition to undoubted aesthetic values and improved comfort, also has a practical function. Thanks to the clear texture and noticeable porosity, which allows for better grip and stabilization of the rider's leg.
