    Hello, I have an Ovation saddle and I'm having a tough time finding places that sell the XCH (X-change) gullet plates, especially that aren't terribly over priced (since I live in Canada)... I am in need of a narrow/pink one and it also seems they are harder to come across than the medium sizes...

    Hi all, Looking to buy this used Rodrigo Pessoa 17" Gen-X saddle, approximately 15 years old. How much is a reasonable price for this saddle? Pictures included. Thank you:) (PS_ posted this originally in the tack review section.. then realized this is probably the correct category!)
  3. Horse Tack and Equipment
    Ok, so this is kind of a long-shot, but I have a question about the Pessoa saddle warranty they offer. If I were to buy a used Gen-X with a tear in the leather, could I take advantage of the warranty to get it fixed? Not sure if this is for trees only, or if it covers leather tears as well...

    I am considering either of these saddles, linked below. This is an HDR Pro CC. It is in MUCH better condition than the Pessoa linked below, but I know the brand is notoriously not as good quality. Pelham Saddlery: HDR Pro A/O Used Close Contact Saddle 17"M This one is a used Pessoa A/O CC in...

    So I have literally put about 10 ads out on various websites, but no responses so far. Hoping to have some luck on here... Anyways, I am selling the saddle for $2,500, but price is negotiable(or best offer). It is located in the USA, specifically Virginia. This saddle was used for a couple...

    Hello! I'm looking for a 16.5'' English saddle, preferrably a Pessoa or something or equal quality. It cannot have alot of wear and tear on it due to the fact that I'll be using it mainly for shows. If anyone has one that I might be interested in please message me with a picture and price. Thanks!!

    Hi all- yesterday I had a saddle fitter come out to ensure my saddle was fitting correctly. I have recently purchased a 10 year old 16hh untracked thoroughbred mare. Previously I had been riding this same horse for a solid 4 years. We mainly plot around hunter style, do some jumps, nothing...

    So, I'm graduating in a few months and will be starting an internship at Valhalla Farms. That being said, I'm getting a brand new saddle for my graduation present. I do mostly hunter/jumper shows, but I'm looking into maybe doing some eventing as well. I sat in a Pessoa saddle at my barn (I...

    I am buying a new horse and will need a new saddle with a medium tree and was wondering if anyone had one I could do cash or trade for my 17.5 wide tree Stubben Siegfried. Let me know what you have, thanks!

    Would the effectiveness of a Pessoa system be compromised if the ropes were connected to the side rings of a halter or a bitless bridle, instead of the bit? I like the idea of this system, but I don't like how it seems to encourage the idea that pressure on the mouth is good. Not that it's bad...
  11. Horse Tack and Equipment
    Ok I've had this saddle for a year or so now and love it. But since my mare has lost some weight recently (we're working on getting her back to her previous weight, but it's tough to do in the winter!), I wanted to re-evaluate to make sure it's not creating any pressure points right now. I...

    does anyone have one or have you ridden in one? i have a horse with high withers, large shoulders and in need of a wide gullet clearance for his spine. from what i've read i think one of these saddles with the Alto panels would work well for him, but i have yet to see one in person. i'd love any...
  13. English Riding
    Hello, I started taking English lessons two years ago with my Quarter Pony (14.2). I used my friend's saddle and now it is time to get my own. I chose close contact becuase they have been my favorite. I am looking for an affordable price for a new or used one. I love the Pessoa pony saddles...

    Yesterday, I traded my friends a bunch of stuff for a NICE Crosby Hunterdon! It came with a brand new Crump bridle, a pessoa girth, and a kincade breastcollar. LOVE it! Has anyone ever ridden in this saddle?

    The saddle I have now (an A/O Pessoa) is just to slippery!!! It seems like the more I clean, condition and oil it, the more slippery it gets! I have run out of patience with it and I am now looking for a new (used ) saddle. I have been looking at the brand Antares. They have absolutley...

    Hi everyone, I am thinking about buying a used pessoa saddle. It looks fabulous, only minor scratches, no mold, symmetrical pannels, and is super comfy to sit in. I am in love with this saddle. :D My only concern is when I look under the saddle, there are two lines in the gullet area around...

    I have a 17" Pessoa Rodrigo on trial for 3 more days. I love how it feels, my trainer thinks that the flaps are too short for me though. They didn't feel short when I rode, and I had a friend take pictures and I'm not sure that they look too short either. I know my trainer has more experience...

    I found an interesting article on the Pessoa Training aid and was wondering if any of you have ever used it and what you think of the item. Thank you How to use pessoa training aid - by Jenni Hillis - Helium

    I'm looking for information on an older (~10 years) Pessoa saddle. The only information I can find on it is the stamp "art. 313" above the size (16 1/2) under the right flap, and the style "TG1259" engraved in the leather under the left flap. Does anyone have an idea what the model name could...
