  1. Today's progress... Have to finish the swell and install flank, Latigo, offstrap... Goes home soon!
  2. Another excellent video to add to this list is Saddlemaking: The Ground Seat, first published on DVD in 2012, where Cary Schwarz, a founding member of TCAA, leads you through the process of building and installing a ground seat in a custom saddle. I got mine through the TCAA, not sure if it's still being produced. The ground seat is probably the most important part, and then equally important is the rigging choice and placement of them for horse and rider. Great thread!
  3. This is a custom reining saddle, should be done by end of this week. Features Mincer conchos and hardware, border stamped with oak tooling, on chocolate Wickett & Craig skirting.Black Elephant inlaid seat, Roo buckstitching, and Orrell 3" flatbottoms in curly cedar to finish off. Already designed, made and delivered - matching breastcollar, headstall, spur straps. New chaps will also be made to go with the set. Now, if he can just get back in the show pen... Covid has no friends!
  4. Roping Saddles, and any others that don't fit the other albums!
  5. This album contains pix of various personal gear - spur straps, photo albums, belts, toilet seats, etc....

  11. Hermann Oak has buffed hides. I think you can get them buffed from Wickett and Craig also. Costs a bit more. You can use an orbital belt sander on the parts you need to take the fuzz off as well. Just do what needs done, what is seen. I'm not sure what grit to rec as I only buy buffed hides for rough out saddles...

  13. Postage to Australia is something I would have to calculate after I know what you want...I can put the strap blanks in an international shipping envelope, weigh it, and get a quote for the shipping. Then I will let you know what that cost would be... Let me know what you want to order, then I can put that into an international mail envelope, get a qoute for shipping, and let you know...
