  1. Thanks for posting Welshman. I haven't ridden in it, but I been told they are wicked comfortable! Glad to hear from someone who has seen them before.
  2. its a plantation/field trial saddle with western features. commonly used for hunting.
  3. Hi Folks! I had the good fortune to get my hands on a great hand made saddle. Its 30 odd years old but never been on a horse. Its been stored and while the leather is good quality, its dry. Not damaged. Just drier than I would like saddle leather to be. I wanted to ask some advice on the best way to bring it back. Appreciate any thoughts. Thanks.
  4. Interesting point. It doesn't actually say MADE in Mexico, just says MEXICO. Seller said it came from Texas. But that is just word of mouth.
  5. True Luke. It has stainless hardware and the leather is decent. Its not that card board stuff. It is hand tooled. That leads to the question: Is there such thing as a quality Mexican made saddle? I don't want to delude myself. I have heard lots of negative things.
  6. Here's the thing. I had been loaning my younger brother my contest saddle to team pen in. Knowing that I go to the auctions a couple of times a month, he said to pick him up something of his own. Gave me $400. He's a kid and doesn't have a lot of cash. Thinking I am doing a good sisterly thing, I pick up this lightly used trophy saddle. Looks like its only been used a few times, had nice tooling on it and was a 16 inch seat. I confess, I did not look it over real well besides making sure the tree was sound. I won the auction for $375. I was feeling pretty good about myself. I was told it was valued at $1500. Now that I got it home, I started looking it over and found the stamp "Made in Mexico". Be straight with me folks. Did I just get screwed on a piece of crap?
  7. I am truly saddened by your loss. Fire is a horrible tragedy. There are no words, but I am sorry.

  9. One of our boarders is considering an Australian saddle for her gaited horse. She has come to me (?) for advice and I am not sufficiently knowledgeable on Australian saddles beyond the fact that there is a lot of knock offs and crap being sold as such. So I turn to you folks for mentoring on this subject. She is considering a Bates and a Syd Hill. She would like to consider a Toowoomba but fears they are out of her price range. She has a TWH x RMH cross who has medium withers, broad through the shoulders but short backed. Thanks for any help.
  10. Thanks Bruce, its an old one. The latigo holder is marked 3 9 63 with the number 2 above the slot. I am not certain but guessing that means it was built in 1963...? Sheep wool panels and many nice details.
  11. Really? Nobody? Come on now, I appreciate any feedback. Don't be shy.
  12. I can vouch for that. Plus, for most of us...common sense would dictate. Sadly, I must have been under the influence of :brainbleach:.
