Rawhide Saddle

Just wondering if anyone has any ideas or thoughts about Rawhide saddles. I am going to look at one 16" FQB to see if it will suit a new horse that Sis and I bought recently.
we ride mostly English but it would be nice to have a western saddle when we go out trail clearing so we can take a lot of "stuff" with us.
Thanks for any information you can share with me

I’ve never heard of a rawhide saddle. It sounds uncomfortable. Rawhide can also become “mushy “ if it gets really wet. It lacks the tanning and oils that keep leather from absorbing too much water.

I think they mean roughout saddle. The thing with roughout is you really stick to it. Some people don't care for it, and others choose it over anything else. My daughter's barrelsaddles all have roughout on seat, fenders and jockeys. You might try it before you commit to buying it.

Rawhide is a Saddle maker in western Canada, I don't know much about them.
It belongs to an acquaintance and I did ride in it once years ago and found it very comfortable but I picked it up this morning and tried it on our horse but it does not have enough clearance at the wither so it is a no sale.
Thanks for your input tho'

But of course! It's plain as day that the word 'Rawhide' was referring to the maker's name . How could I have missed that?

It's actually called Western Rawhide. It's an okay brand, not horrible but average. I had one years ago, I got by fine with it.
