Saddle Sales  




Select Western & English Saddles

As a service to our saddle fit clients, we have quality used consignment saddles and new demo saddles; ones that we find fit more horses more of the time.   (We have found ten reasonably priced Western, Endurance and English saddle makers that horses tell us fit better than most.)  We always have demo saddles in various tree sizes from each of the saddle makers we like.   If we don't have a saddle in our trailer that works for you and your horse, we will fit you for a new one and help you order it directly from the maker.  We are NOT saddle reps.  We are independent. In order to offer our fit guarantee, we need to fit it to both you and your horse, as well as show you what to look and feel for.  Therefore, we do not market saddles to non-clients.

We stock quality new & used saddles built to help you & your horse ride better!
We fit you and your horse to make sure you BOTH get a saddle that fits. And, we want you to Try Before you Buy.

The Saddles That Fit Guarantee:
We extend a 7-day "Really Ride It" trial period to make sure your saddle fits,
and we guarantee a solid tree on every saddle we fit.
