I bought a new saddle last week, it is a 16" Western Saddlery roper. I bought it because the price was right, but now that I have it home I would like to know more information about it. I have never heard of the company Western Saddlery before and am wondering how good they are? I have googled the company unsuccesfully, and am wondering if anyone has anymore information on them or know of a place I could look for a phone number to contact them.

I've never heard of that company either. My saddle is a montana saddlery model, its a custom saddle. Yours also might be a custom saddle. where did you purchase it at?

I purchased it at a tack auction, the auctioneer was Mike Murphy. He appaerantly does quite a few tack auctions around the country. But I can't seem to find contact information for him as well.

It sounds like a brand made for auctions. If I'm correct then typically they sell at auction for ~$300 and are Asian imports. Their trees are poor and the leather usually a poor quality. Although it may be called a "roper", if it is what I think it is, I certainly wouldn't rope from it.

I have a Western Saddlery saddle that is vintage. Sheep wool padding. Made in the late 40's to early 50's thus it couldn't be made for auction sales. I would like to email you some pictures of it if you'd like to see them.

Jack, would you be able to post the pics instead of emailing them to the OP please?
Thanks
