Pessoa - Creating the Perfect Saddle

Since its arrival in Europe in 1962, Nelson had been pursuing a difficult task: creating the perfect saddle.

In 1968, the famous Hermès Saddlery Company in Paris asked the renowned rider to design a jumping saddle that would respond to modern criteria. Then, Nelson launched his own trademark in 1971 and has continued to develop his revolutionary designs.

Top Skilled Craftsman

The classical riding style of Nelson Pessoa is an inspiration for every rider. No wonder an impressive number of champions have selected his saddles. Among them are the reigning world champions: Rodrigo Pessoa and Blyth Tait. Besides this, the Pessoa line benefits directly from the results of the international competitions benchmark. Nelson places as high demands on the craft as on the quality of his equipment.

Under his control, top skilled craftsmen manufacture his original creations: the Pessoa items are identical to those used every day by the Master.
