This is a custom version with the quilting replacing the chevron design and fancy stitched seat. The back gallery has been shortened 3cm to allow for a larger thigh room and more rider mobility then the tradional Bullfighting tight design.   Ludomar Portuguesa is very much like the Mixta Portuguesa with the exception of the size of the front and back galleries.  The galleries are of the Traditional shape, larger than on the Mixta Portuguesa adding additional security.  The flap is more compact with s shorter length. Xerial straps added.

These are very popular in the Working Equitation world of Portugal and Spain.

    Love My Saddle!

    I just wanted to let you know that I absolutely love love love my saddle! Its beautiful and it turned out better than I ever dreamed! It’s already made such a huge difference for me and for Gus in our riding. It fits him like a glove and he goes so well in it. There is no shifting or sliding around and I feel so secure in it. It’s so nice to not have to feel like I need to keep readjusting the saddle as I’m riding. It’s the absolute best fitting saddle (probably the only saddle that’s ever truly fit) I’ve ever put on him in the seven and a half years I’ve had him. I can’t thank you enough for everything and all the time that you spent helping me and getting this saddle ordered for me! I attached a pic of us from our lesson tonight! Hopefully I can get some better pictures of him in the saddle over the weekend!

     I want to say I love my saddle and couldn’t be happier with it after a long struggle, I now have a horse who no longer has a sore back or shoulders.

    I would like to order a  San Jorge bridle.....         Laura Lee Crook
