Pessoa all purpose or eventing saddles- who rides one?

So I am on the hunt for a saddle that fits both me and my horse. I tried a friend's Pessoa the other day (while riding her horse) and it was like a dream come true Unfortunately her horse is rather wide and mine is as narrow as a snake so I couldn't try it on him. Anyone used one of these in a narrow tree on a TB or other breed with crazy withers? It agreed really well with me, but his comfort comes first which is why I am currently riding him in a Crosby cc saddle which is really flat but fits him well. He also has those "divets" behind the shoulder to complicate matters but I think with a narrow tree it might work

Anyway, if you have ridden one or even have one for sale, please let me know. The nearest tack store is 100 miles away and I don't get a full day off until june so we're going to have to play the order and pray game. Any info is appreciated!

I have Pessoa CC and like it. I tried something like 20 different saddles (in BIG english store) and that was my #1 choice there. My paint is narrow with rather high withers and it certainly fits her.

I have a Gen X and it's great! I use it on a wide horse (QH) normally, but I've had it on my trainer's TB/Clyde who is also wide but has HUGE withers - no problems with clearance :)
