I recently purchased a GW Crate Bear Trap Barrel saddle from Jerry. Like most, I was concerned about the lower price than most saddles. All my other saddles are Circle Y and cost me in the range of $1.600 +. I contacted a few individuals who purchased a GW Crate via ebay
to check their feedback on the quality of the workmanship,etc. Hands down they were very enthusiastic and positive about their purchase. Based on their feedback I ordered a custom barrel saddle from Jerry and waited the 5-6 weeks for it to be built. When it arrived via UPS, I was very pleased with my decision....great stitching, quality leather...on and on. Can't beat the price!
