Double Diamond WESTERN Endurance Options
All of our fenders require no break in because instead of layers of stiff leather we back our leather fenders with biothane. Stronger than leather they will not stretch and are very flat increasing that close contact feel and are very kind to the lower back and hips and knees.
Fender Styles include the Historic teardrop Old Timer Western, Traditional western, Narrow Trail (straight in shape and about seven inches wide), and the Endurance style ( a curvy leather sleeve over pretwisted biothane, stirrups hang out the bottom on biothane). You will not need to wet the fenders and let them sit with a broom to build a bend in all the leather because there isn’t all that leather. Traditional blevin buckle length adjustment on all fenders with the exception of the Endurance fender which has a buckle and is able to be adjusted when mounted.
Added fender position adjustment feature: for rider comfort, we have an easy to change feature allows you to move your fenders, should you prefer, to one of three stationary positions depending on your riding style and how you are built. You do not have to position them, you can also leave them free swinging. Gaited riders typically leave them alone, whereas active posting riders use the position adjustment to insure their riding in a balanced feet under you position. The best way to try it out is to do just that: ride and try it out in all the positions, and then free swinging. All you need is a flat head screw driver.
Available in 4” cantle, Standard is the roll over style, or upgrade to the Cheyenne Roll or Pencil Roll style.
Jerimiah Wyatt Horseshoe hardware.
Trail Package includes breast collar rings, four rings out back, crupper ring, two footmans loops on the back of the cantle.
Smooth or suede leather, black, dark brown and light brown
Suspended Trail Seat: a deeper seat, the narrowest twist, with a soft rise in front and pocket to sit in
Suspended Flat Seat: the rise is a full 1″ lower where it connects to the pommel or swell. The Flat seat also gives a slightly wider sitting area for those riders needing a bit more width. The Flat seat with a Cheyenne roll cantle offers the ultimate “more” sit area feel.

Unless the saddle maker or myself are in error, your signed returned email “accepted as written” is your commitment to your saddle and there is no return policy. We strive to insure that your saddle is built on a tree that will fit your animal and your designs are specific to your style choice.
We are happy to assist you in selling your saddle by posting it on our website under ‘saddles in stock for sale” should your animal unfortunately pass over the rainbow, is injured, or other unforeseen circumstances. As your animal changes we are happy to assist you in learning the art of “reading your fit” whether it be for a changing growing animal or a new or different animal. We choose trees with changes in mind and they are very generous to allow for thicker and/or shimmed saddle pads should that be necessary. Keep in mind however that a larger wider animal may not fit into a saddle built for a narrow smaller animal. Our together time leading up to your final order includes much needed information so as to choose a tree based on the measurements static and movement statically. We have a very high rate of success helping our customers.
