Just need to showoff my new saddle

This is the second one I had made by Kevin (SouthernTrails). Although the first one was well made, I really wanted another Wade style saddle. So.... it came yesterday and it feels like no other saddle I've owned in the past 30+ years.

We started with a saddle off his page and I made a good number of modifications to have it come out like it did:

The tooling and workmanship is just fantastic. It feels like the leather is already broken in.

Now - we'll get to try it on my boy tomorrow or Saturday.

Hmmmm.... iride, why do you need the 2nd one? I remember your first one and it was very nice looking. This one looks great too. If you decide to give away the 1st one I'll take it in!

TThanks for the compliments! Thanks, also, for the offer, Val, but I sold it already. You should have said something sooner!!. The first saddle I ordered had a cushioned seat that I figured I would like - but didn't. I also wanted a somewhat heavier saddle with a high back - so I ordered this one.

Lol! I was kidding (beside the part it looked nice). I switched to english completely as of this year, so thinking if I have to sell my Western saddle (as I'm too greedy to sell it cheap ha-ha!).

Pretty nearly perfect, just has every feature of my mind's eye perfect saddle. Is the buckle strap from the horn your design?

^^Thats a pretty good question. I was wondering what that is for. The roper in me wants to imagine that it's a rope wrap but I'm not sure.
