I'm looking in to getting my horse a new eventing saddle, and am thinking about looking into Pessoas, probably the Pessoa Legacy Event or the Pessoa Blyth Tait Event, both of which I understand to have his new gullet-changing system. I am a growing rider still, taller but slender, with very long thighs. The saddle would need to accomodate a short stirrup for me in cross-country, as well as the long, extended leg position for dressage (at least until I could afford to get a dressage saddle, in a couple of years still lol). My horse is very high-withered, but has a broad barrel and big shoulders, so it would need to fit him as well. I also prefer a saddle that doesn't block up your leg, but more just guides you into a balanced position and supports you but leaves you to find your own position. Can anyone give me any feedback on Pessoas? The saddle would need to last me a good while, so are Pessoas well-built? Or is there another brand of saddle I should look into?
Any comments will be appreciated!
