We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer. That means this item isn't eligible for additional 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 rider can modify the width of the tree using any of our interchangeable gullet plates with only a screwdriver. This system does not change the integrity or look of the saddle. The strength is the same, the feel is the same! The tree can perfectly adapt itself to the withers and back of any horse or as your horse grows and changes.

Measurements taken from inside bottom of plate to inside:
Narrow - 21cm
Medium - 21.5cm
Medium Wide - 22cm
Wide - 22.5cm
XWide - 23cm

    Pessoa X-Change System Gullet Plates is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this system! The plates can be tricky to change at first and i was a little intimidated taking my saddle apart but it made all the difference i needed in securing my purchase for my Pessoa saddle. Fits my guy perfectly now!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from have patience, young grasshopper several things first:1. use a screwdriver and not your car key. car key works but.. screwdriver is more efficient.2. i am horrible at putting stuff together. i bring it home, make the dh put it together.3. it will get easier with practice.i ride several different shaped horses and look, even in a good economy most of us don't have the cash to buy a bunch of saddles to fit different horses. 20 odd bucks to make a custom fit? i'm sold!being too lazy to get my screwdriver i opted to use my truck key. it got the job done with minimal swearing (my horse was highly amused by watching me kill his saddle). i pop the tree out (ooh, my tree is narrow? hmm i think i know my next sp purchase!) and work on getting the wide tree to fit in. and i stink at lining up the screws so maximum swearing is reached with many people wondering what in funk and wagnalls is she doing to that saddle? before success is at hand. it worked! i got happy ponies and have provided worthwhile entertainment for the people i board with! success! in all honesty though, i do believe that the genesis system is a little bit more user friendly so if you're buying a new saddle that you can adjust i'd look at the m. toulouse first.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A little challenging to swap I own a wintec for hacking and knew that I wanted the adjustable gullet in my new saddle. I think the wintec was easier to swap the plates, but I would definitely recommend the system.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Easy to Change Our Selle Francais has filled out a bit through the shoulders over the last six months and we found that our Pessoa was fitting just a hair tight. With the x-change system you can just change the gullet instead of buying shims, risers, pads or other fixes. For $25 you get a custom fit.

    Ever since I was the girl with 1,000 breyer horses and the raggity braid in her hair, I was always obsessed. In second grade I moved into a town with a barn right down the street, which is when I started taking lessons...
