Almost, but not quite..

I almost like this one. It looks like a nice, good quality, well made saddle...except for the hair on cowhide seat and swells. I don't even really mind the accents on the skirts and fender. That seat would either be prickly and uncomfortable even through jeans, or slicker than snot. It would also look moth-eaten after long use as the hair starts to wear off. The swells, well, I just don't like the way they look.

  1. I am actually fan of saddles that have an accent on the skirt but this is a bit much. Since the swells are cowhide as well it makes the horn look like an after thought.

  2. I've actually been looking at their saddles for quite some time now. You can get them pretty cheap on Ebay and they looked quality. And I can customize without the price going sky high.

    This. This is pretty ugly. Scary even. BUUUUUT Halloween IS coming up soon.

  3. Not a bad looking saddle. Sans the hair of course! Replace the piece on the skirt with silver and that's about as decorated as I like them. Maybe a little more, but not a lot.

  4. UGH this is just icky, except I really like the color of the leather.

    I finally got up the guts to check out Ligers & Tigons saddlery, and OMG - WHO writes their marketing copy??? A 7th grader?
