I don't know. It looks like he upped his prices recently. Very recently. I really like the LaPort trees for durability and weight. I bet there are other makers that use them. I'll contact a couple and see who they recommend, too. Oh, I'm going to be out of town for a few days, so if I don't have any more options tonight, it will be Tuesday before I get back on.
Thanks tons for your message :) Where would I be able to find more about those fabulous saddles? And I guess more of a general question....should I look for a reiner, trail or pleasure saddle? or does it not matter? Thank you so much!!!
