Blyth Tait Event Saddle
Close Contact Saddles

For Sale on eBay


Manufacturer: Pessoa
Model: Blyth Tait Event Saddle
Category: Close Contact Saddles

Purchase: I received this saddle as a gift. I think it retails for around $1,800.

Likes: The dark brown color is beautiful. It has an extremely forward flap, knee, and calf block. The calf skin leather is comfortable and broke in almost within a week (with proper oiling). The seat is flatter then your average jumping saddle but still supportive while allowing you to get your hip out behind you.

Dislikes: It is not a dislike, but just be aware that the flap is extremely forward and runs long. This is a saddle designed for men and long legged riders. However, I am 5'2'' and feel comfortable in my 17''

Quality: This saddle uses good leather but the billets and billet guards feel a bit on the cheap side. The saddle was easy to ride in after a week or oiling and the billet guards are getting softer already.

Summary: Jumping and galloping in this saddle is like coming home. It is so easy and comfortable to ride in. I felt for a long time like I was fighting to hold my gallop seat and having to make an enormous effort over fences. Once I sat in this saddle that all changed. It became easy again. Very close contact, allows you to feel your horse but still supports you.
