I agree it's wise to buy the best you can afford. Even if it's plain looking, you can always add the bling. Check out ebay for conchos or Tandy leather factory. I have a saddle that came plain with just screws. It's a very well made saddle but the fancy conchos cost extra. When I could afford it, I bought conchos and replaced all the screws. Now it looks very flashy. Be creative and add your own bling. Take some plain leather reins and make them special and personal.
smrobs and Corporal like this.

Well, ask for $$$ toward what you want. That way you do not feel bad and you can split the cost.

I added bling to a headstall for the first time. I would really like to see pics of what you did.

My wife blings everything! Headstalls, gun cases, belts, I think she may need to see a professional. Lol. The headstalls and tack do look nice though. And they're one of a kind. Kinda spiffy

Okay guys I think I have it right this time. I don't love the green so would it be hard to switch it out if I ever wanted to? Other than that, I love it! And as I said I'm more worried about durability and not breaking dads wallet. ;)

And is buckaroo just the name of the style or something? Tried to Google it and found a million tack shops and not much help, haha.

That is not weaver leather at all. Run fast and far from that. The other thing is to find Amish made tack. They make use of quality leather and it is very affordable.

@nvr2many I should have taken before photos, now they are just saddles with conchos. We replaced all of the screws on my husbands saddle with Jeremiah Watt conchos. The hardest part is finding the screw combos that take the screw back on the concho to the wood type screw in the saddle tree. The Leather Factory (Tandy) carries them.




I used a heart concho on mine.

Oops sorry Nighside, didn't mean to hijack your thread with those humungous photos.
