Stadium
Close Contact Saddles

For Sale on eBay


Manufacturer: Pessoa
Model: Stadium
Category: Close Contact Saddles

Purchase: I bought this saddle new but on sale at Dover for about $1200. It was a bright orangish color and that color was on sale, the darker ones were not.

Likes: I had trouble finding a saddle long enough in the flaps for a long femured person like myself. This saddle was advertised as good for people like that and so I went to look at it. It is about 4 years old and used fairly regularly. It is very comfortable and looks brand new. My daughter uses it for Pony Club stuff so it is a jumping saddle but she does basic dressage in it and it is fine for flat work.

Dislikes: No complaints at all. I would prefer a smaller knee block but I feel that way about all knee blocks and pads. I like them but I don't like much extra...these are average sized.

Quality: It is very well made; it still looks brand new except we darkened the color which was a bit garish.

Summary: I would buy it again in a heartbeat. Since my daughter and I use the same size and occasionally ride together, I have considered buying a second one just like it. You don't hear much about the Stadium and I wonder why, it has been great.
