A Few Examples of Custom Saddles We Have Already Made
This customized saddle began with our High Prairie gaited horse saddle and was customized through a process of repeated customer interaction. It features the historic Sam Staggs rigging, a braided hold back over the swell, engraved steel rigging and a cantle pouch. This saddle is truly a piece of art created by our Amish master saddle builder. We now offer this saddle as the Delzar.
This Sinclair saddle was personalized to combine the upper portion of a Wade saddle, with the plantation fenders and English stirrup leathers of our Sinclair model. We then added white leather trim, white stitching and conchos per our customer's request.
Left is a Sentry Western gaited horse saddle that has Plantation style fenders and stirrup leathers. Additionally, the rigging was modified, moving it back from the normal position on a Sentry saddle.
