Hello all! 

Finished saddle 3! It's a
14.5" Olin Young ranch roper.

Can't thank Travis Kading enough for letting me do this build at his saddlery and for all the help he gave me along the way! Especially for showing me how to do those single piece swells.

Conchos and cantle plate were made by Gordy Alderson. The rigging dees are Jeremiah Watt. 

Thanks for looking! 

All the best,

Ryan

That is a thing of real beauty there

I guess the symbol is a ranch brand? How is it read?

It is hard to imagine that is just your 3rd one.  You have worked very hard to get to where you are at.  My hat is off to you.  Not many do that caliber of work by the 3rd one!

Wow!  That saddle is beautiful - Really like the clean lines and the combination of roughout vs tooled!

Excellent work!

Nice job! My 3rd didn't look that good... If you don't mind, who made the tree? It looks like a OY without leg cuts? Very clean lines and your tooling and pattern are really good. I see a style emerging...!

Ken Nelson,  You wouldn't believe his first one either. It was way better than most people's first. 

Nate - Great job on this one! Hope to see you in Prescott and crossing our fingers it happens.

It is great to see some of these young guns, get so good so quick.  It just goes to show there is no limit how far you can go with some natural talent and a LOT OF HARD WORK.

Good job Ryan. Your tooling looks real good, and the design of the saddle looks clean.  How did you do the Roland Saddlery, and I'd like to see how you installed the flank cinch dee.
