Great Condition Pessoa Legacy XL 17" M Saddle
This saddle has been taken care of extremely well, cleaned after every ride and conditioned at least once a week. The only reason I wouldn't classify it as excellent condition is because it shows the typical signs of use ie. stitching at the bottom of the flap has been rubbed away a bit, the leather is darker where the stirrups have been etc. Neither the pommel nor the cantle have scratch marks from being set on the ground....

The Pessoa Legacy XL is a great quality saddle. I've had it for four years now and its billets and leather have yet to show signs of age. The leather is very strong but also supple. I've mainly used the saddle for hunters, but it was originally made for the jumpers. It's got pencil rolls up front and thigh blocks in the back. These features in addition to the deep seat really help put you in the right position. Both billet guards are still in place, and the tree is in excellent condition. The color is oakbark, although it is not nearly as redish as the flash on my camera has made it seem. I've ridden tons of bays and chesnuts alike in it.
The XL has the look of the XP3, but it does not have the interchangeable gullet system. I have only ever found one horse the saddle REALLY needed special pads to fit, however.
New Pessoa XL's were originally sold for $2,300, so at $1,000 this is a great deal for a broken in yet quality saddle. I am sad to see it go!
