Just because it's PUURRRDDYYY!

Posted by RodandDenise on March 6, 2014

We are no longer building saddle trees, but we have two videos about how Western saddles fit horses available on our website.


Here is a picture of the tree we mentioned in a blog post a while ago - in all its glory...


The horn is an exposed, polished bronze # 1 horn made by Herb Bork of Bork Saddlery Hardware.



Very showy horn!


The tree is a Visalia 3B – 3 ½” stock thickness on an 8” slick fork. It has a 5” tall, 12 ½” wide, 40 degree Taylor cantle.


So shiny, you can see your face in it!!  

Just something else a little different...

It is SO pretty (thank you, Rod) and I want to ride in it so badly right NOW, but the saddle and tooling must do justice to the horn, so it will take longer, and I can't even start it until I get two almost-finished custom saddles out the door, so it sits on my worktable (with a weight on it) looking beautiful and taunting me daily. Aaaarrrgggghhhhh!!!
