The entire Pessoa PDS and Trainers saddle ranges are presented with the exclusive adjustable gullet plate X-Change® system. The rider can modify the width of the tree in 6 easy steps using any of the adjustable gullet plates with only a screwdriver. It is really that simple!
This system does not change the integrity or look of the saddle. The strength is the same and the feel is the same. The tree can perfectly adapt itself to the withers and back of any horse.
The tree size can be changed from Narrow up to Extra Extra-wide.
Series 1 Plates are mainly suited to Dressage and Anky Saddles (for Jumping and Masters Saddles please refer to Series 2).
Take these steps or simply drop your saddle in store and one of our qualified Saddle Fitters will make the change for you!
