The Aldea is shaped to avoid any restriction on the back of the shoulder, a cut away sweat flap allows extra room for shoulder rotation.  The result is a noticeable increase in the horses forward movement and ability to extend.

The panels feature the AMS panel system, designed to absorb concussion and evenly distribute pressure. The AMS panels can be re -flocked and adjusted just like a traditional flock filled saddle. The tree is lightweight carbon fibre, with a easy change gullet. Tree and panel shape will suit a horse with some shape rather than flat and the shape of the front panel can be perfect for horses with the shoulder hollows as is often found on Thoroughbred types.


Includes original Pessoa fleece saddle cover and monkey/safety strap as photographed.
