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'!).

Designed by Rodrigo and ridden by him in international competition. The Gen-X performs equally well on the flat as over jumps. 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.

X-Change system allows the rider to modify the width of the tree with just a screwdriver. The tree can perfectly adapt itself to the withers and back of any horse. 

Ultra supple and long-wearing Oakbark grain leather. Padded flap with pencil roll.

Medium gullet plate included. X-Change System Gullet Plates can be ordered separately.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Saddle! I have had this saddle for about 3 years, and still love it. I was looking to replace my old saddle (which fit my horse very well, but was getting too small for me), and went through many different saddles to find another one that would fit my TB's back without having to get custom. The panels on the Pessoa are nicely shaped, rather than being flat. Other brands tended to bridge, coming into contact in the front and back, but leaving space between the middle of the panels and his back. Additionally, the flaps on this saddle are straight enough to stay clear of my gelding's large shoulders. Multiple vets have commented on the great fit of the saddle on my horse.The leather is very nice, and I love the dark havana color on my dark bay. A great value for a nice saddle!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely Saddle I love this saddle! very comfortable from the first ride. I also love the gullet system! Thank you SmartPak for another great purchase!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gullet Change easier than expected Saddle was immediately comfortable. I have ridden in some one else's model of this for a year and I love it. Changing gullet was easier than expected once I realized I should put screw in hole for panels (lower screw hole) and then match up to other part. Very good value. $8 shipping makes Smartpak the place to buy this saddle.
