Wade Lite

The WADE LITE is a true working saddle built on a tree that is for true ranch work:  roping, dragging, any tough stuff this saddle will get the job done.  In this case the term “ranch” refers to how it is built, not the style. It’s tough, and yet balanced and beautiful enough to use in the Western show ring too.  Built with Herman Oak Leather, hand crafted one saddle at a time, a work of art.  We use Baties trees, and require that you take a mold of your horses back for reference.  Saddles take approximately 10 to 12 weeks depending on your options.  Sometimes a bit more, sometimes actually less.  Nothing about the Wade Lite is cookie cutter and is well worth the wait.
