There are not many 16" Pessoa/PDS saddles around and the Aldea with its unique cut away front panel is no longer made so this is a great find and its is in near new condition. 

The Aldea is shaped to avoid any restriction on the back of the shoulder. It has a cut away panel and knee block on top of the flap. 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 and panel shape will suit a curved back rather than flat.  The tree is lightweight carbon fibre, with a easy change gullet, currently fitted with a XW gullet, we can change to suit. Girthing is y configuration with the option of adjusting it to come off the very front tab.

A 16" seat with normal size flaps so not a childs saddle, more suited to a petite adult.
