Saddles

Big Bend Saddles

Our saddles are hand-made one at a time by skilled saddlemakers using the finest materials available. Our trees are made by master tree maker
Warren Wright. We use top quality Hermann Oak leather. The linnings are Grade A- 1" wool skins. The saddles are built
with seat sizes up to 16 1/2". The names of the trees are based on the shape of the swells, therefore the horn, cantle, or swell
width can be changed on any tree. As far as the rigging goes, we prefer a flat plate, but also make many full double riggings.
The saddles are hand tooled with a variety of options. The price of our saddles include covered stirrups, front and rear cinchas,
latigos, and flank billets. Call 1 800 634-4502 for help in ordering.

The first six saddles are ones that we have in stock now for sale. The other are samples of what we have made for customers in the past.
