Summit 1800 Denier Turnout Sheet
Horsewear



Manufacturer: Pessoa
Model: Summit 1800 Denier Turnout Sheet
Category: Horsewear

Purchase: At one time this was a very expensive turnout sheet. More recently I have seen the price of this sheet slashed by at least 50% and I jumped. I purchase my first Pessoa Summit Turnout Sheet from Equus Now and my second Summit Turnout Sheet from Stateline, both were $99. Equus Now charged an additional shipping fee, Stateline did not. In the end I had to return both sheets because of inaccuracies in their description and defects in manufacture. Stateline was very professional about the return, Equus Now was not. The manager gave me a very hard time (even though it arrived defective AND not as described) and forced me to pay shipping both ways.

Likes: This turnout sheet is gorgeous and looks gorgeous on. The fabric and physical workman ship are impressive. It looks strong and it feels strong. Lots of bells and whistles, this should be a great turnout sheet.

Dislikes: This sheet does not fit well around the chest, neck and shoulders and the front straps are a disappointment. Other Pessoa turnouts have the front 'D' and clip closure which features double sets of D rings to compensate for wide/narrow chests and a quick release closure. The new Summit Turnout has two cheap nylon straps and plain buckles. The front of the sheet is cut exactly like all the other Pessoa turnouts but without the double D rings there is no way to adjust the fit. The sheet just hangs around the neck. My horse is WB with a wide, formidable shoulder, a wide wither and a high set, well crested neck. I just purchased a custom saddle to clear that shoulder and still this sheet hangs off his neck and shoulders. So unless your horse is quite mis-shapen, this sheet will gap and gap badly. Also, when the first sheet I purchased from Equus Now the front buckle broke in my hands. Not a very substantial closure for a 1200 lb horse.

Quality: The material is amazing and the color combination/overall look is top notch. The hardware is very cheap and the front shoulder/neck area needs to be redesigned to match the cheaper single strap/buckle closures. The off thing is that both of the Pessoa Summit Turnouts I purchased and two more Pessoa Summit Turnouts I checked at local tack shops all had the very cheap strap/buckle front closures and all the sheets had factory tags explicitly stating that the sheet has the double clip and 'D' front closing system. So while the tack shops are wrong for knowingly advertising this sheet as something it is not, some how I feel this issue goes back to manufacture. Either way, the Summit Turnout Sheet is not worth the effort.

Summary: Pessoa make a great line of turnout sheets and blankets. But what made them worth their price was that great fabric, wonderful color scheme and fantastic fit-all double clip and 'D' front closure system. Unfortunately without that fabulous fit, these sheets are just pretty wall hangings.
