It's scheduled to arrive Wednesday! I'm pretty excited actually, and I'll take pictures. If it ships UPS it won't be here until late around 8 or 8:30. I'll get pictures of it on whatever horses I'm riding that day and post them! I do my own concho work so I'm going to bling the mess out of it!

I hope you like it as much as ours are liked. Which I think you will. Please do post pics and your opinion.

It's here! It's very nice, I believe it's well worth the money. There are a few minor things, but I'm very picky as my elite custom was the best of the best. The fender leather is sort of thin, nothing like a double t or any crap saddle though. The seat, whatever is under it doesn't feel quite smooth, it's got a few bumpy spots, no big deal. That's all I can pick right now until I ride in it tomorrow. I've sat in it and it feels good, nice deep pocket.

And advice on how I can darken the leather SLIGHTLY, not the rough out but the rest?

Will upload pictures in a few!

I am curious as to how your ride went:)

Okay I'm holding out I'm pictures I know! I'll get them up asap! The ride went great. Was on a loopy horse and never felt unsecure. I love how free the fenders swing too. I'll be running barrels in it tomorrow and I'll let you guys know how it does! So far so good, I think it's safe to say I love it. Saddle repair guy was even impressed by the quality.

I'm glad you like yours as much as we like ours. But, you're definitely slacking on the picture end of things! Heck my wife has pictures of it ours in the box! Lol.

Sorry they are so big!


After it was oiled, slightly darker thanks to mink oil and a hair dryer!

Is it just me or does it look a tad big on that horse?

Very pretty saddle though, they seem worth the money and I love the close up pictures.
