SHOPPING CART: watch our website under accessories because soon you will be able to actually order your SKITO, THINLINE or EQUIPEDIC saddle pads, plus we are offering Shear Comfort real wool shearling saddle accessories again to make your ride even more deluxe. For example the full length shearling, all the way down to your stirrups, perfect for those that like to ride in shorts is the summer, and stay cozy in the winter, wool adapts. Shearling seat accessories can make a slippery seat have some bite, and can also make a seat that's a bit too large feel just right. If you ride in a saddle that has leathers (no fenders) check out our tubes: unlike some these velcro down the backside for easy on and off, and are tapered at one end for those riding with a leather cuff over the buckle. We have all styles from just the seat, to the seat and jocky, about half way down, to all the way to your stirrups, for all styles of saddles. You'll be able to purchase those right from our website using Pay Pal.
A REAL REINFORCED WORKING RANCH saddle? Yes, now the Old Timer is available as an upgrade, to be built with a reinforced tree and horn, a standard ground seat, and full leather pre-twisted or Hamley Twist for those of you wanting to try out a little cattle sorting! Still built with our famous suspended ground seat.
COWBOY DRESSAGE anyone? One of the things that makes a dressage western a dressage western is seat and fender position. Your feet cannot be hung in a forward position or you will never be able to get your feet under you. Now if you are reining that's another story, but in western or Cowboy Dressage, posture is important. Our Old Timer can be built in the flat seat and includes three positions to put your fenders in so you are always correct in posture only seeing just the tips of your boots.
HORNLESS WESTERN? yes, you can build the Old Timer without a horn! Check the Gallery for photos. It' a wonderful option for those wanting a western but without a horn.
TRAIL SEAT and FLAT SEAT: Yes, we now offer the Endurance and Old Timer western models with two options for the seat: the original deep seat, and the flatter seat. Not totally flat, but flat-er for those riding styles that require you be posting a lot of the time, or those bodies that need that flat space in front, we listened. No change in price.
THE BELLA: our newest english hybrid endurance model with a slightly lower pommel and a scoopy wider cantle. It comes standard with lovely soft supportive knee and thigh blocks, a full lined english panel, biothane leathers 1" or wider 2 1/4". This saddle comes standard with the wider leathers and nylon endurance stirrups. If you order the 1" leathers, stirrups are your choice. We love the Compositti Flex stirrups with a cage over the toe for safety.
THE ENDURANCE TEK "WESTERN": for you riders who want western but without a horn: the same wonderfully comfortable no-concussion suspended seat saddle including tooling we've also changed the seat jocky a bit so it's really western looking. It comes with JW Stainless Horseshoe hardware throughout, leather strings, biothane western fenders, a tooled Cheyenne roll cantle, western rigging center fire adjustable, and leather covered western or endurance stirrups. You can see a photo of it in the Gallery, click up top. It's basically the Endurance TEK 2 but with a few upgrade embellishments that make it look western.
The Double Diamond Generation II saddles feature a FINISHED UNDERSIDE of 1/2 of wool felt, but not over the entire underside but only under the bars so the gullet will remain open from front to back for complete spinal clearance. You 'll still be able to change your fender position to three choices, a feature that our riders really enjoy for their own personal comfort to get their posture balanced.
