  1. After seeing this, there is something to be said for the days when they thought that putting the American flag on "things" (shirts, hats and now saddles) was considered dishonorable! They've taken this to a whole new level. And $5200...Are they smokin CRACK?

  2. What do you do if this saddle touches the ground? Awful lot of money to spend on a saddle you'll have to burn, lol.

  3. well.... at least they didn't try to put all 50 stars on....
    Also looks like it was made for a horse with a sway back....

  6. CP- ROFL! Ya crackin me up!

    Seriously though, I agree. Some things are just a bit much. Then there are those so far over the line, they probably didn't even know there was one to cross.

  10. Saw this saddle at the Washington International horse show tonight. I think it was in the silent auction. I have to admit it was a nice saddle.

  11. I saw this for sale at the Pennsylvania National Horse Show. It was obviously a custom display piece, not made for practical use. It's extremely intricate, the stars are cut outs, and the strips are individual pieces of leather.

    Don't get me wrong, if anyone tried to actually USE this saddle I might tackle them, but I think it is to be respected as a piece of art. A saddle maker was just looking for a challenge. =]
