Still looking for a few things--
Professional's choice SMB Elite (or Elite Ventechs) in size Medium, fronts and backs.
Also looking for:
28" or 30" cinch--Neoprene--preferrably SMX Ventech or similar ventilation type cinch, however will look at Weaver Neoprene or Smart Cinch Neoprene cinches.
These items below I am looking specifically to trade for (my artwork). After I sell some things, I may look to buy something outright.
•Professional's choice SMX Air ride pad, OR Charmayne James (professional's choice) Pad (barrel racing or otherwise).
• Tooled chestnut/medium oil Breastcollar, about medium width, or possibly something nice with silver.
• Back cinch with center connector strap, and preferably tooled billets.
• Medium oil/chestnut stirrups, preferably tooled, but willing to look at any GOOD stirrup. Flat bottomed, with about 2 1/2"--3" or so width.
**sample picture, not mine, of stirrups similar to what I'm looking for:
I also have three saddles for sale/trade--looking for Circle Y or crates saddles of various sorts & sizes.
I have one 15" Trophy roping saddle made by J.M. Saddlery out of South Dakota back in 1976. This saddle is well made, though it is on a Ralide tree, so not recommended for actual roping. New photos of this one coming VERY soon! Suede seat. Love this saddle, but Dad got a bigger saddle that fits him better. 16" saddle, unknown maker. I believe it has an Arabian tree, it has high wither clearance and a 7" gullet. Fit our Arabians, but my sister wanted a deeper seat for trails. In excellent condition. Slick seat on this one. 16" saddle, made by H Bar L saddlery out of Rock island WA I believe, FQHB with an almost 8" gullet. Leather is very supple. Very nice saddle, and comfortable suede seat. In excellent condition. Comes with matching tooled breast collar & bridle, split reigns & a basic back cinch.
