The Buena Vista is a historically designed saddle made for long hours in the saddle checking fence lines in the southeast part of the United States. It is the model with the largest suspended seat area with a wide sweeping cantle and narrow twist, just an unbelievable ride! Although it appears to be a wide twist (between your legs), it actually is not - the cantle makes it look wide. The Buena Vista can be built in three versions: the Sport (shown in the photo is the Buena Vista Sport, which is a medium length English flap with biothane leathers coming through a traditional slit in the leather), the western version with fenders, and the english version with a full English flap. A lean forward trail horn can be added to any of the models. On the underside of the saddle is real shearling just on the bars of the tree, a completely open gullet and channel front to back, and three positions your leathers can go into for rider comfort. Standard features include are a 4” roll over cantle, smooth or suede seat, English 2 billet center fire rigging or western center fire adjustable rigging, and lots of stainless steel trail hardware for carrying your gear, and adjustable 3 position leathers or fenders. The Buena Vista weighs between 14-17 lbs and is all leather and is available on many of the Steele Saddle Tree fits . Available in seat sizes 14-18. There are many ways to customize your saddle with tooling or carving, conchos and matching tack.
Matching tack is available as well as a wonderful collection of technical saddle pads. Call us to talk about matching tack!
Base prices are for saddles built on a Steele Saddle Tree quarter horse or semi quarter horse tree. Should you choose to build your saddle on a specific custom fitted tree by Steele Saddle Tree (which includes fitting face to face or from afar and the time to evaluate videos and tracings to choose a fitted tree, and custom fitting guidance after you receive your saddle), add $100 to the price of each saddle.
