SADDLE GALLERY43

Handemade Wade Saddle-To start with I guess you need to look over gallery 1, as there is a very nice saddle with silver/steel trim much like this one. That saddle was indeed to basis of inspiration for this customer. A young lady in Nevada, had been envying that saddle for some time, and when we finally met we had the chance to write that order just the way she wanted it. We kept the basic carve pattern, which is Ammonites and Diamonds, we spinkled the Amonnites around to make it interesting. The Wade tree was built right here on the ranch and rawhided here. The customer changed up the skirts, going with pretty large very pointy skirts that look just great. We done an inskirt rigging to keep it narrow between the riders legs. Take a llokat those cute little saddle string twists that accent the lip onder the front fork cover and the bottom side of the cantle binding after it is handsewn of course. We had several folks stop by the shop to visit and order, and they really like those twists. Padded seat and Buckrolls, we went all out and got in some Pecan Alligator, which was shot in a dug-out in Iowa of all places. The Silver trim is all mounted to mild steel, which have been beveled and wide striped just the same as we do cheek pieces around here, then high polished and hot blued, all the silver is based in a Ammonite type pattern as well and then antiqued to give it life and contrast.. The last finishing touch for this Buckaroos order was a Silver bit from us, on that classic Freno pattern. This was done in a full sterling overlay, small scrolls as was asked for and then a antique finish so everything ties together nicely. I know, I keep saying it...............but if you think its time for us to build you a saddle just give us a call at 559-935-2172
