Hey, so I'm thinking about selling my barrel saddle. I wouldn't at all, but after having a baby my butts just to big for it, and I sold my barrel horse.
Anyone whos been around any SERIOUS barrel racing has heard of Black Rhino saddles. They're pretty much the best, of the best, of the best. Every one of these is custom made. They have INSANE quality and are well known for their trees which have shoulder flare. I can vouch for the fact that they're really awesome on a wide shouldered horse and can allow any horse to open up with more free movement. This are serious, serious barrel saddles. I knew QUITE a few pro barrel racers who rode in these.
This saddle is VERY loved. It is a 14" with their #2 tree, which are equivilant to semi QH bars.
The saddle is in good used condition, with MANY more years of use left in it. You can see the wear on the rough out seat but otherwise its in really good shape. It has half breed tooling, rough out seat and leathers, silver berry conchos and a rawhide and silver laced cantle. Someone paid a fortune for this saddle new. I paid a small fortune for it used!!!
IF you are interested in this saddle please let me know and we can discuss price. This is not a cheap, mass produced saddle. It is a custom hand made saddle that's pretty much the best you can get. I can provide pictures if you are really interested. Honestly, unless you're serious about barrel racing, it probably isn't worth your time or money, but it fit me and my horse like a glove. The ONLY saddle that never sored him up.
I realize that if I sell, I probably won't ever be able to replace, ever... but I need the money.
