As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Made with extra supple pre-oiled long wearing Antique Grained English leather, the Legacy is built with a more forward flap and open seat for enhanced balance.  The syntectic wool flocked panels are enhanced with Pessoa's AMS® system and the carbon fiber spring tree features the X-Change® gullet system.


  • Ultra supple Antique Grained English leather
  • Calfskin seat
  • Contoured triangle knee roll and kneepads molded in calfskin
  • Adjustable thigh block
  • AMS® synthetic wool flocked panel system
  • X-Change® gullet system, comes with medium tree width gullet
  • Regular flap
  • Sizes 16.5, 17, 17.5
The X-Change® system allows the rider to modify the width of the tree using only the Pessoa Gullet Plates and a screwdriver.  This system does not change the integrity or look of the saddle; the tree can perfectly adapt itself to the withers and back of most horses.  The tree size can be changed from Narrow up to Extra-wide.

The AMS® panel system eliminates pressure hot spots by dispersing the pressure within the panel over the breathable neoprene layer.  No more bumps, bruises, or hot spots!  The saddle can be re-flocked as desired in the traditional manner.

If you choose to add a saddle plate, the plate will not be attached to the saddle so in case of a return the saddle will not be damaged.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Jumping Saddle I bought this saddle a few years ago and haven't looked back. The interchangeable gullet is great- I didn't mind spending the money knowing I can make it fit another horse if need be. I love the forward flap- In my old HDR event saddle I used for jumping, my stirrups were getting so short that my knee was coming up over the kneeroll. This saddle's forward flap fixed that. Mind you, it is not the most comfortable saddle to flat in- however, on cross country you're not supposed to be sitting down!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good saddle This saddle is pretty nice. I like the changeable gullet. I got it as a test ride a few months ago. It seemed to fit my horse fairly well, but the seat isn't extremely comfortable. It did put me in a good position though. I sent it back because it didn't fit my long legs.I'm sure this saddle would work for plenty of other people, but it just wasn't for me.
