Pessoa Gen-X Close Contact Saddle

All Pessoa saddles are built on the same patented tree so that each model of saddle provides exactly the same balance and position for the rider. The Pessoa Gen-X features a soft cowhide seat, knee pads, and panels, with quality cowhide and calf flap leathers. All Pessoa saddles feature the exclusive patented X-Change interchangeable gullet system (XCH).

Bayflex is a type of memory-flex polyurethane which has been specifically designed for padding purposes by Bayer. Bayflex is an extremely versatile material which can adjust itself to different pressures and maintain its protection without losing its shape. Because it is a specialty padding, it is able to provide ultimate cushioning without bulk. Bayflex does not bottom out, heat up or cause sore spots on the horse’s back. They will adjust  to a horse’s back. They will adjust to a horse’s back, providing even contact  and pressure, then spring back when removed, making this system idea for those who ride multiple horses or those who prefer an ultra close contact.
