Why We Love This The Rodrigo Pony saddle was originally designed by Nelson Pessoa for his son Rodrigo, a serious young equestrian competitor. It offers a perfect position and balance for the young rider.  The Rodrigo Pony Saddle was specially made to fit the wide back of ponies. To achieve this, Nelson spent weeks measuring ponies' backs, testing trees and panels. He adjusted the saddle seat by making the twist and the width suited to a young rider's narrow body.  Positioning the child in a properly built English saddle will not only achieve a better balance, but it will also help the feeling and the confidence of the young rider.
