Marcus Ehning, German Champion, European Team Champion, World Cup Winner and Team Olympic Winner, is an established personality in international equestrian sport. His successes in the show jumping ring are always accompanied by Passier. Because all saddles, bridles, breastplates, girths etc., which are used by Marcus Ehning, have been developed and refined by Passier in close collaboration with him. Every day they show anew how perfectly Passier products support horse and rider even in top level sport.

The saddle which the professionals trust: With the large knee inserts it provides perfect contact to the horse. The elegant, slim snaffle with decorative stitching is also used by Peppi Dahlmann.

Particularly popular in the show jumping ring: The anatomically shaped leather saddle girth convinces by numerous extras such as a roller buckle with pin under the Velcro flap.

ALWAYS A huge jump ahead

a strong team for Strong products

Passier relies on the know-how of experienced professionals. Particularly in show jumping where saddles, bridles and accessories must be 100% reliable. Thus Otto Becker, Team Olympic Gold Medalist, Winner of the Grand Prix of Aachen, Winner of the Show Jumping Riders’ World Cup Final, several times German Champion and current Trainer of the German Show Jumping Cadre, has been placing his confidence in Passier for over 30 years now. Further competent partners, in addition to Otto Becker and Marcus Ehning, are several times Nations‘ Cup and Championship Winner Franz-Josef “Peppi” Dahlmann and Holger Wulschner as well as Belgian Junior Showjumping Champion and Grand Prix Winner Jody Bosteels.

Phoenix jumping saddle and snaffle The saddle is particularly slip-proof and offers excellent sitting comfort which is certainly why it is the first choice of Peppi Dahlmann, Holger Wulschner and Jody Bosteels. The snaffle is absolutely horse-friendly as a result of its broad contact area for better pressure distríbution in the poll area.

Passier cross-country and all-purpose saddles are designed to cope with every situation, which is why they are the first choice of so many professionals. The best example of an extremely successful rider who has been placing her confidence in Passier for many years now, is Ingrid Klimke. The two-times Team Gold Medal Winner at the Olympic Games also supports Passier in further development of the saddles. Kai Rüder, World Champion of 7-year horses in eventing, has also been placing his confidence for many years in saddles, bridles and accessories by Passier, just as the successful English rider Ruth Edge, Young Rider National Champion and Winner of Luhmühlen CCI*****. The fact that Passier is also well established amongst the next generation of cross-country riders is demonstrated by young eventing rider and German Young Riders‘ Champion Julia Krajewski.

1 GG Extra Dressage saddle


One of the most popular dressage saddles in the world and a genuine classic by Passier. With its deep seat and thigh supports, it convinces not only professional riders.

The Optimum offers a truly superb riding feeling with the narrow twist for excellent contact to the horse. Furthermore, in the Optimum II version it has pre-formed knee inserts and larger thigh supports. The round stitched Icarus Double Bridle with removable head piece lining is a high-quality eye-catcher.

2 Sirius Dressage saddle


The Sirius is the first saddle with frtSystem® for optimum shoulder freedom. Kristina Sprehe rides in it every day. She evaluates it as: “very good”!

The saddle convinces by means of its soft, deep seat. The pre-formed knee inserts and thigh supports bring the leg into an optimum position. The Double Bridle is especially horsefriendly, the head piece has a soft lining.

inside, outside, perfect!

stable- and turnout rug Perfect fit – waterproof – breathable! The smooth polyester inner lining means the rug adapts perfectly to the horse‘s sequence of movement and the fabric‘s good sliding qualities effectively avoids any rubbing in the shoulder area. The wadding lining is guaranteed to remain evenly distributed over the rug, because the inner lining is quilted together with the wadding material. The rug is available either with 150 g or 300 g filling – depending on your horse‘s requirements!

The new rug not only sits perfectly, it also provides optimum all-round protection against dampness and cold with its extra-long side pieces and tail flap! The removable hindleg straps and the integrated, elastic tail strap prevent the rug from slipping. The movement gussets at the front ensure good freedom of movement and the adjustable front buckle arrangement provides for optimum distribution of pressure.

breathable saddle cloths

With their diamond quilting, coat of arms and gold-colored cord border, the saddle cloths not only look particularly good – they are also extremely comfortable for your horse. The reason: The finely woven outer material is neatly quilted with a special “open-pore” under material. This special material combination is especially breathable and effectively reduces pent-up heat and dampness. The effect is as simple as it is beneficial: The horse dries more quickly after riding! Further plus points in favour of the new saddle cloths are the very good fit, the user-friendly girth loop with a practical Velcro fastening and the foam inserts with wadding which make the saddle cloths more stable. The saddle cloths are washable at 30°C. Washing does not restrict the breathability.

The secret: The “open-pore” underside

The new breathable saddle cloths with coat of arms are available in dressage and jumping versions and in the colors Passier Blue and White.

freedom meets beauty

Sirius The Sirius Dressage Saddle, here in the color Havana, is not only a real eye-catcher in the dressage arena – it also sets new standards in horsefriendliness! As the first saddle in the world with frt-System® it effectively ensures that the horse‘s shoulder can rotate completely freely without any disturbance to the sequence of movement. Further highlights are the comfortable seat, the elegant patent leather trim, the variable selection of Velcro supports, freedom panels and W-girth arrangement.

the Compact Dressage Saddle

Invented by Passier: the perfect saddle for horses with a short back – excellent for their riders, too! The Compact Dressage Saddle combines a short contact surface for the horse with a significantly larger and more comfortable seat for the rider. Naturally, with its freedom panels and the W-girth arrangement for a particularly secure saddle position, the Compact saddle also sets new standards as far as horse-friendliness is concerned.
