Friday Fave: Jason McKenzie Custom Saddles
This week, I have another super talented custom saddler. Jason McKenzie hails from Alberta, Canada. He specializes in custom Western saddles. This fellow's work is absolutely STUNNING. Most of his pieces are working, reining and roping saddles. There are even some antique reproductions. The tooling and detailing put into them is gorgeous. They are true works of art that work!! He does do show saddles with silver, but most are very understated and elegant. His prices seem competitive with other custom saddlers. Go check out his website and see what he has to offer. I have posted a few photos as a teaser below.
Now, to me the saddle above is just super elegant and simple. The ovbious quality of the leather and workmanship really shows.
I love the color contrast on the saddle above. The leather looks so rich and smooth.
I personally love the saddle pictured above. It looks so authentic. I would get one in a heartbeat if I had the cash.
Above we have a super nice, elegant show saddle. Just enough silver and gorgeous tooling. I love the contrasting inlaid seat.
Boy, check out the tooling on this one! Isn't that amazing?
