Category: Close Contact Saddles
Purchase: I bought this saddle on www.ebay.com. I didn't know anything about this saddle, except that it was a ladies Pessoa saddle. I took a huge gamble but ended up very happy. The whole saddle set ended up costing $500. It was very dry but only a few years old.
Likes: I love the knee rolls, and the seat. This saddle has provided comfort for myself and my horses. It helps you keep a very proper position and the balance is correct. This saddle feels sturdy and is hard to scratch/ruin. I also was amazed that it fit both my medium width horse and my wide width horse. After I rode in this sadddle for the first time I decided I would only buy pessoa's from now on. This saddle has a wide calfskin seat and a slightly cutback pommel.
Dislikes: To be honest there isn't much I don't like about this saddle. I am a bit worried because the billets are stretching slightly (0.5 inches). I also would apprecitate thigh rolls, but this saddle is very nice.
Quality: Pessoa saddles are guarenteed for 100 years, so I have 95 years to go. I can honestly see this saddle lasting another 95 years. It has foam stuffed panels, and a solid tree. Calfskin knee rolls, and seat. Pencil knee rolls under the flap and all leather exterior. The saddle is slightly forward but also great for just hacking. I have long legs and my seat is 17" and the saddle works fine for me.
Summary: I love the Blyth Tait eventing saddle and I bet you would too. I can definitally see myself using it for years to come, for every aspect of riding.
