Purchase: I bought the Pessoa AMO Close Contact saddle at a local tack shop for $1600. I ride Hunters and my old saddle wasn't suitable so I looked for saddles and tried a few and settled on the Pessoa.
Likes: I LOVED the Pessoa because it fit my Irish Thoroughbred mare very well and she is very high withered and not real easy to fit. I had already ridden in another saddle 15 minutes prior to the Pessoa that is quite a higher priced saddle then the Pessoa but after the Pessoa it was nothing. The Pessoa AMO saddle immeaditly put me in the right position for forward seat riding and kept my leg at the ideal place, I had to work 1/2 less than in my old collegiate and I was getting 2 times better results. It looks great, Puts you in a great Position, fits a variety of different horses and feels like a cloud while you are riding.
Dislikes: There wasn't much I didn't like about the Pessoa AMO but if I were to add something to it I would put a leg block in the back of the flap.
Quality: The Pessoa is very high quality leather and has broken in almost immediatley. Even after oiling the saddle multiple times it has held its original color and gains the flexibility of a well oiled saddle. The Pessoa is built amazing and offers a 10 inch twist that gives you a secure felling of riding.
Summary: If you are looking for a quality saddle for less than $2,000 go with Pessoa, they are well made and look amazing.
Usefulness Rating: 2.8 out of 5.
