The Pessoa Legacy Event Saddle is beautifully crafted and functional. This line of Pessoa saddle features a new AMS Synthetic Wool flocked System, which makes the saddle more comfortable than other saddles. This particular saddle consists of a deep rich dark brown color, is full of luster, and lasts a long time.
The saddle comes with a lifetime guarantee because the manufacturers are confident in the materials used to make the saddle, such as a carbon fiber spring tree.
If you’re a horseback rider that loves to push yourself and your horse to the max, the Pessoa Legacy Event saddle is for you. Few saddles such as this one can keep up with the demands of an intense horseback rider.
Features and Benefits
The AMS Synthetic Wool Flocked System eliminates the wadding up of the wool by using a neoprene panel to disperse the pressure.
Saddles that don’t include this technology end up having clumps which makes riding too difficult on the rider’s joints and very uncomfortable for the horse.
With the AMS system on this saddle, you are guaranteed to be able to ride in comfort no matter how long or how hard you ride your horse.
Underperformance and exhaustion are directly correlated to saddles that do not contain the AMS technology because saddles that don’t contain the AMS technology enable the horse to lock in heat and increase their core temperature.
However, Pessoa has tackled this problem and made the lining breathable which means that you can say goodbye to hotspots.
The saddle includes a flexible carbon spring tree that creates more suspension for the rider, allowing for greater movement and the achievement of a near perfect galloping rhythm.
Many lessor saddles include stiff trees that often break – this saddle’s tree is so good, it’s guaranteed for the lifetime of the saddle.
The rider feels a greater sense of balance due to the more forward flap and open seat with the Pessoa Legacy Event Saddle. This also allows for a greater range of movement and a more natural control over the horse.
It might be trite to say that there are none, but this saddle certainly has few flaws, if any. Some remark that the saddle strides a little to far from the Pessoa’s dedication to traditional saddle manufacturing.
Most, however, maintain that the saddle is a perfect mix of tradition and new technologies. I agree. Master craftsmen are always improving their work, and this saddle is evidence of that.
Summary and Recommendation
If riding is your one true love, or if you simply do it a lot, then you deserve the Pessoa Event Saddle. It is perfect for shows that put riders and horses to the test as well as everyday work. You can rest assured that this saddle is not going to give up on you.
As many riders will tell you, you simply can’t go wrong buying a saddle from the Pessoa line and this is one of the best in that line.
