It is not an exaggeration that Pessoa is one of the most famous equestrian brands in the world. The brand is virtually inseparable from the men who created it, Nelson Pessoa and his son Rodrigo Pessoa. Nelson began his career in the early 1960s and his precision and technique led to a long string of victories, including 150 Grand Prix wins. His son Rodrigo continued in his father's formidable footsteps, and by 16 was competing in Grand Prix events. At 19 he joined his father on the Brazilian Olympic showjumping team. Rodrigo holds multiple World Cup titles and rankings. Together, this impressive father and son duo created Pessoa brand saddles, bridles, and tack that satisfied their high standards and showcased their experience and expertise.
Pessoa's innovative designs, outstanding materials, and variety of products mean riders get top quality and the right tack for them and their horse. Pessoa saddles with exchangeable gullets, hunter jumper saddles with synthetic wool AMS panels that conform to the horse's back, and beautiful hunter bridles and martingales for the show ring are but a few of the popular horse tack items that Mary's sells. We have a wide range of Pessoa jumping saddles, including the Rodrigo Pony Saddle, the Heritage Pro, and the value-priced Gen-X.
