On Friday, September 1st, Hermès celebrated the Hampton Classic and the Selle Faubourg Saddle at The Deslauriers Farm in Water Mill, New York with VIPs, equestrians and fashion, entertainment, design and creative notables. The Selle Faubourg Saddle was on display for guests to admire at the spectacular event.
The epitome of Hermès’ age-old know-how, the Selle Rouge (Red Saddle) begins a new chapter in the story of the house’s saddles. Out of the desire for excellence and innovation emerges a different kind of saddle. Something truly unique. With its deep seat, the slender fork of its tree, recessed blocks, and skirt incorporated into its flaps, the Selle Rouge becomes one with the horse and proudly exhibits all of its technical and aesthetic innovations.
Created for show jumping and working on the flat, the Selle Rouge is suitable for riding both in and out of the saddle. Designed for the horse’s comfort and to promote perfect harmony between rider and horse, this saddle marks a new creative momentum and a decisive leap forward.
