We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer so you won't find it cheaper anywhere else. This also means we can't apply any further discounts or promotions.

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'!).

The A/O's ultra comfortable 10" seat and classic balance has made it Pessoa's number one jumping saddle worldwide. Made of ultra supple and long wearing English leather. Features BayFlex contoured multi-density polyurethane panels. BayFlex is an extremely versatile material that can adjust itself to different pressures and maintain its protection without losing shape. Padded knee flap with pencil knee roll. Antique Oakbark.



Purchase a Test Ride Saddle and ride in it for up to 5 days! If it doesn’t fit you or your horse, return it for a full refund (saddle must have no excessive damage in order to receive a refund).Click here for more details.

    Pessoa A/O is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable! I have a very hard to fit Arabian so I got this saddle with a wide tree and it fit perfectly! It had soft and supple leather right out of the box and the color is gorgeous. This is a beautiful saddle and I can tell it will last me for years. It's worth every penny. I highly recommend this saddle.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST SADDLE EVER!!!!! This saddle is not only the most comfortable saddle, but it also fits almost every horse ive ever ridden. if you are between this saddle and another, i strongly recommend this. My friends have all ridden in this and love it! ive had my saddle for 7 years and it still looks new! i use this saddle is show jumping, cross country, and ive been using it in dressage because im in need of a new dressage saddle. please, do yourself a favor and but this saddle, weather it be new or used! i find that it puts me in a great jumping position and is great for many disciplines (because i also rode in the app circuit with it. i love the contrasting colors also! if i could i would give it 6 stars!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it I purchased the a/o to be a second saddle to my devocoux. I love it, it is so comfy and puts me in a good position, i wouldn't have thought it to be just as comfy as my other far more expensive saddle. It ia also very nice looking and has aged well

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite saddle It looks stunning on my bay for jumpers and hunters. I really love the Pessoa nameplate instead of your own. It fits him nicely and is very comfy for me as well. I have had it for 8 years. I've retired it for showing only, because I want to sort of preserve it and my schooling is rather rough.
