The D-D Wade Ranch, Old Timer Ranch, and the Woodard Ranch are different than our trail saddle in several ways: the tree and horn are reinforced at critical points and double-fiberglassed. We use a heavier ounce, more rugged Herman Oak leather, and the actual build of the saddle is beefed up for safety and rough ranch work. Sounds heavy weight, right? No, our Ranch models weigh an amazing mere 27 pounds! That is because we are building with the least amount of USA leather possible to maintain a close to your animal feel, an open channel off the spine, no layers and layers of unnecessary leather either. They are short and minimalist in design, very close contact, yet get the job done. Another amazing feature: we can build your ranch saddle on dozens of well-fitting tree fits by Steele Tree Company for long ears, gaited, drafts, baroque and pony breeds, quarter horses . . . all equines. Included in the base saddle are all leather pre-twisted fenders, a smooth ergonomically correct (you won't feel splayed out over a propane tank), deep dish cantle hard seat, with or without a padded bicycle seat shape inlay, a rope strap, double layer skirting, open or closed in the rear, several styles of rigging, several choices of horns, 3" 4" or 5" cantle with a pencil or cheyenne roll binding, and more. You can design your ranch saddle to include upgrades such as rough out, carving, tooling, decorative hardware, bucking rolls, rawhide trims, a rear cinch and more. Weight 27 lbs.
