Jorge Canaves' Vienna II has been distributed by Thornhill USA since 1983. Canaves copies "great" European saddles in his plants since his retirement from Olympic competition in 1964. He builds primarily for the European market. This saddle represents a modified version of the original Vienna. Modeled from a famous Passier® design, featuring a slightly deeper seat, stitched knee pads for maximum contact, a large concealed thigh roll, and a new billet suspension system for maximum stability. These features combined with this saddle’s excellent center of balance make it one of our most popular dressage models. It's W and XW hoopish design tree will fit even the flattest, widest backs out there. Yet, the medium tree offers a perfect fit for those not so generous.
