PDS Aldea Dressage Saddle 17”
PDS Aldea Dressage Saddle 17”
The Pessoa 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 tree and panel shape of this saddle would be recommended to suit a horse with a back with some shape front to back rather than flat. This saddle would be ideal for a horse that needs extra flock in the wither pockets, such as many Thoroughbred types, older horses. The panels are compact in overall length so fitting a shorter back should be no problem.
For the rider, a deep soft seat, and short surface mounted knee block. The short block can be advantageous for either a short or long leg.

We keep our products honest, and this includes our sizes too!
The following is an approximate guide to our breeches, riding tights and base layer product sizing.
Our equestrian apparel is very true to size. If you tend to be in-between sizes, our recommendation would be to size down due to the stretch in the fabric. However, if you like a flowing fit (loose fit) we would recommend a size up.
For an example:
Model normally wears between a size 8-10 in base layers.
> Fitted style - recommend a size small
> Flowing fit (loose fit) - recommend a size medium
If you have any queries about size or fit, please send us an email to email@example.com and we will be pleased to help.
