CWD Saddles - Question (Buffalo)

Hi -

Two questions on CWD saddles:

1) Is the buffalo leather from American bison, or african buffalo?

2) General opinions on quality etc.

I tried to find information on their site as to where they supposedly use buffalo leather on the saddles.

I'm familiar using leather from American bison for our stirrup leathers, but not for an entire saddle. What do they claim?

Do you think you could email the company with your question?

Email a rep in your area. They're incredibly helpful and great to work with. The rep that I talked to at Equine Affaire spent a while explaining the design of their saddles and offered to bring several saddles to my barn for test rides to introduce them to the locals here.

They are great saddles. Have ridden in a few of them, very comfortable and balanced, good quality. Im personally an Antares person but CWDs are great. I have a friend who is a rep. Im pretty sure they use buffalo.

Or, it could be cowhide embossed to look like buffalo.
