    Saddle Fit Help


    I just bought a new horse in February. I finally started to ride him and have realized that my old saddle does not fit him. I have found to saddles to take on trial. The first is a Barnsby Aurora, I don't know much about the brand at all but it seems to fit him. It fits me well. The other is a Pessoa A/O with the AMS system and adjustable gullet. I haven't recieved the Pessoa yet. But I think the Pessoa might be the better bet because of the ability to adjust the saddle as he changes. My old saddle is a Selle Francaise, made by Crosby. I have a 5 yr old Thoroughbred that I bought of the track, so I know that he will gain muscle and topline on his back. Please let me know what you think of the Barnsby. I have attached pictures. The first set are of my old saddle and the last ones are of the new Barnsby. When I get the Pessoa I will post those as well. Which saddle would you choose? I have been hearing some bad things about Pessoa so I want to make sure I getting the best bang for my buck. Thanks for the help.

    Neither. The first one seems like it would sit to low on the withers when you sit in the saddle and the panels don't lie flat against him. The second one looks to be too narrow. I can't see the panels against him though.

    I will try to get some other pictures of the second saddle on his back. I know the first does not fit him, that is my older saddle that I need to sell. The new one I don't think is too narrow but I will get better pictures to confirm. I have a saddle fitter coming out on Sat. Waiting for the Pessoa to show up. Any opinions on the pessoa?
