English Tack

Riders, and their horses, come in all shapes and sizes. Pessoa realizes this, and they are proud to introduce the new A/O AMS a saddle for every body, and every horse. Made of the finest grained English leather, the saddles feature the Xchange Adjustable Tree System, 3 AMS Synthetic Wool Panel Options, and 4 Flap Options.

For the horse, go beyond an adjustable tree by providing the right panel depth and shape. The new Pessoa A/O AMS features synthetic wool-flocked panels specifically designed for particular horse conformations. All panel types are able to be further adjusted by a saddle fitter. In addition to Standard Panels, Pessoa craftsmen have created 2 new panels: the Alto and the Corto.

Alto Panels are intended for horses with prominent withers and a greater height distance between withers and back. It has a deeper panel at the back of the saddle to make up for this difference, and a front gusset to provide extra clearance and proper fit behind the shoulder, where this type of horse tends to lack muscle.

Corto Panels are designed for horses with well developed, flatter, short-coupled backs. The rear of the panel is shorter and flatter in shape in order to better fit the contours of the back.

For the rider, Regular, Long, Forward and Long/Forward flaps can provide a near custom fit.

Regular Flaps are for riders with average leg length.

Forward Flaps are for riders who are slightly long from hip to knee or prefer a shorter stirrup.

Long Flaps are for riders that are long from knee to ankle.

Long/Forward Flaps are for riders that are very long from hip to knee and proportionally long knee to ankle.
