Pessoa Saddles: The Choice of Champions
Sometimes riders will go to extreme lengths to succeed in their race. That is what Cathy Kusner thought she was going to do. She crafted the most intelligent trick she was going to pull on Nelson Pessoa, in order for her to win the next race. If only everything had worked out to plan, this may have been the case.
In 1962, Cathy Kusner wanted to play a practical joke on Nelson Pessoa. She dumped Pessoa and his saddle into the waters of the Bay of the Angels' Blue Waters. She may have done this out of spite, because she was an American Champion of Horseback riding. The next morning, Pessoa took his saddle, which was still soaked with salt water, and put it on the horse to ride. He was astonished at how easily the saddle now formed to fit his body in a comfortable manner. This is said to be the path, which helped Pessoa begin the creation of his saddle.
In the years to come, Pessoa continued to develop the perfect saddle. The Pessoa saddle is one of the most used saddles for champions, and also the most recommended saddle for racing. The saddle is known for being a high quality saddle, with a fantastic design, test performance, and workmanship. This saddle has been demonstrated in several international competitions, and continues to be a high demand product amongst racers.
Only top craftsmen are chosen to create these high quality saddles, which are constructed from the finest French leather that is naturally tanned and full of richness, texture, and warm color. Several collections have branched from the original design of the Pessoa saddle. The Pessoa Legacy XL is said to contain design elements that enhance performance.
The saddle is a narrower twist with a lower pommel, which ensures closer contact while riding, thus lessens the possibility of any interference. The Pessoa Legacy XP has been designed as a perfect balance for forward jumping positions. This saddle includes latex molded panels. The panels are thicker and wider, aiding to enhance the comfort for the rider as well as the horse. Soft calfskin seat and kneepads have also been added to this saddle, which is much appreciated by riders.
Several styles of Pessoa saddles are continually being developed, which offer a rider more comfort ability, closeness, and satisfaction. These saddles will continue to be crafted and used by champions for years to come.
