Nelson Pessoa is driven by the idea of making professional grade tools available to every competitive rider. The Nelson Pro Pessoa Series reflects the heart and soul of Pessoa - beautifully designed saddles with the highest quality leathers for the ultimate feel.

Trainer's saddles are made by the house of Ruiz Diaz. Ruiz Diaz also makes the popular Pessoa show jumping saddles and the PDS Carl Hester Collection of dressage saddles. The Trainer's range includes a beautiful selection of saddles across the dressage, show, jump and general purpose disciplines.


All of our beautifully hand crafted saddles by Pessoa and Trainers are fitted with the Xchange Gullet system for ease of adjustment to fit any horse


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.


Many variations in styling, color, stitch patterns and stirrup leather slots are available across the range of saddles. These cosmetic changes do not alter the basic design & balance of the saddle.


Nelson Pessoa Saddles feature calfskin seats, knee pads and panels, and top-of-the-line flap leathers, selected for the highest level of wear-ability, flexibility and consistency of finish.

Rodrigo Pessoa Saddles feature soft cowhide seats, knee pads and panels, with quality cowhide and calf flap leathers.


All Pessoa® saddles feature the exclusive patented X-Change® Interchangeable gullet system (XCH).


Nelson Pessoa Saddles generally feature AMS® panels, which is synthetic wool stuffing encased in a patented pressure-eliminating neoprene sleeve.

Rodrigo Pessoa Saddles generally feature the Bayflex® foam panels that have been proven to fit more horses better, with the closest contact for the rider.
