Hermès Allegro Saddle Launch Party

Monday, March 7, 2016

Hermès presented its long-anticipated Hermès Allegro Saddle
 on March 3rd, replacing the brand’s well-known Steinkraus saddle. Attendees of the 2016 Winter Equestrian Festival in Wellington, Florida, witnessed the official unveiling of an ultimate saddle, which enable better balance for the rider who love to be outside of the saddle when jumping.

Created in collaboration with world-renowned riders Pilar Lucrecia Cordon (Spain), Lillie Keenan (USA) and Daniel Bluman (Colombia), Hermès Allegro is a saddle that combines high sporting proficiency, lightness, comfort and elegance, as for competitive and leisure riding.

“Hermès Allegro is the ultimate expression of the values which have driven the creation of all the métiers in the house since its first harnesses in 1837,” said Marion Larochette, Director of Hermès Equestrian.

In addition, the house will once again present the Hermès Talented Young Rider Award at the beginning of April 2016.

Among those in attendance were Ben Asselin, Ugo Borao, Cyril Valtat, Lillie Keenan, Marion Larochette, Peter Malachi, Sophie Lipowitz, Christian Paillot, Rodrigo Pessoa, Flo Fulton, Alice Barry and Nick Dello Joio.
