Cowgirl Dressage Saddle
Wilhelm Introduces the Cowgirl’s Dressage Saddle – the
newest in his complete line of saddles.
Developed and tested last
year, the saddle was introduced to the public for 2013.
From the beginning, Charles has been a firm believer in
using dressage principles in his training methods,
therefore a western saddle that provides close contact for
dressage movements was a natural development.
saddle features a deep equitation seat and is designed for
western/cowboy or Cowgirl dressage and is a great trail
saddle as well. The saddle design allows for deep, close
contact with your horse and is available in medium oil,
black or a deep, rich walnut with several different
tooling patterns to choose from - border, basket or
floral. The saddle weighs approximately 28 pounds and can
be ordered with a wood tree or flex bars. The saddle
features a 13 inch swell, 3 ½ inch cantle and 2 ¼ “ horn,
available in 15 through 18 inch seats. Matching rear cinch
is included and silver lacing on the cantle is available.
The narrower, pre-shaped fenders and natural balance
stirrups aid in ensuring the riders proper ankle position,
while relieving stress on the ankle. The available
Supracor seat makes this saddle extremely comfortable to
ride in. Affordably priced, the saddle ranges from
$2150-$2800 and can be customized to your liking. You can
complete the package with a matching breast collar and

'STARTING BABY JAZ'
After a few short months on the market, Charles'
new book 'Starting Baby Jaz' is receiving excellent reviews
from publications like 'New England Horse Talk', and 'Quarter
Horse News Weekly'.
changes the lives of horses and humans. My horse, a four-year
old Arabian mare, had been under the saddle for almost one month
when I brought her to CWT. Barely a month later when I picked
her up she had undergone remarkable changes. From an adorable
but slightly bored horse, she had become an alert, interested
and strong horse. In other words, she was way ahead of me. With
me Charles had a tougher nut to crack: some habits picked up in
the course of many years had to first be un-learned before I
could even understand what he was teaching me. There's something
infectious about Charles’ commitment and sense of humor
that helps me to absorb the new knowledge. The premises are
strikingly clean and well organized, and all the horses seem
totally engaged. There is a good pace to the trainings, the
lessons and the cleanups. At any time of the day one can witness
Charles smack in the middle of the arena, training a horse and,
with a few words and gestures, directing others. He obviously
has a finger on the pulse of every detail in his stable. The
staff is friendly and knowledgeable, and it is apparent that
everybody likes to work for him.
