Lets Talk Western Show Saddles
We all love our show saddles to be dripping with silver, but what color leather do you love? What do you consider to be "in style"?
As much as is perhaps shouldn't be the case, at the big shows, the judges do take into account "style". Have you ever been in a situation where you felt the judge skimmed over you because of your tack?
Are you on team light oil? Medium/ dark oil? or rich black?
Do you think certain colors are acceptable for certain breed shows only?
It seems light oil is the "go-to" for AQHA, but there seem to be more and more designs incorporating darker oil and black...are those colors making a comeback?
I would love to hear your personal opinion on Western show saddles!
