Mmmkay...

This beauty is advertised as an endurance saddle, which makes sense given the lack of a horn. However what does NOT make sense is the rest of the saddle! Silver plates on an endurance saddle? Big, heavy skirts? Heavy tooling? Stirrups with (backwards) tapaderos? What? Stick a little silver horn on it, take off the taps and call it a show saddle. This poor thing is just confused, maybe it will figure out what it wants to be when it grows up soon.

  2. You crack me up! Now I know how to define what an endurance saddle is--a regular western saddle minus the horn!

  3. Maybe it's just for show, but the tapaderos are on the wrong side of the stirrups!

  4. Wow. I bet it's stiff as Brady Bunch family room paneling, too. And as low quality.

    Hilason looks to be about as "nice" as Ligers&Tigons saddles....

  5. Okay, someone on my horse forum wants this: http://cgi.ebay.com/13-PURPLE-BLING-BLACK-WESTERN-HORSE-SADDLE-ARAB-BARREL-/110619528387?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item19c1700cc3#ht_3925wt_1960

    I saw it and cringed.

  6. That really is one confused saddle! Nice tooling, though.

    I've sent through some submissions previously - not sure if you had alreayd posted them, if they weren't tacky enough, or if you just didn't get them. They are coming from a d*******k@gmail.com address, so they might have ended up in your junk box. :)

  7. The brand name says it all. Hilason is a name that is synonymous with craptastic saddles and tack. They sell their craptastic saddles on E-bay and are well known for their horrible quality and customer service. If the name is Hilason stay far, far away.
