Trail Saddles

For Sale on eBay

Manufacturer: Breakin Wind Saddlery
Model: Mule Saddle
Category: Trail Saddles

Purchase: I saw this saddle advertised in Western Mule Magazine. I paid 800.00 for the saddle under the assumption it would be a good fitting mule saddle.

Likes: Looks nice.

Dislikes: The fork is crooked.

Quality: This saddle is constructed on a poor basis at best!

Summary: I contacted Mike Hamilton about this saddle the first day I saw it. I told him at that time I thought it was a nice looking saddle but there was a problem with the saddle that I simply could not without trying it for a while come up with a conclusion. After about 3 or 4 rides and many complaints "only to my wife" of back pain and constantly stepping hard into the left stirrup to keep the saddle from leaning to the right did we notice the fork seemed bent! We measure from the top of the horn to the concho in the same area on each side and there is a one inch difference. Keep in mind I'm not a saddle builder but I do know when a saddle has a problem this obvious. I'm not wealthy by any means and only have this one saddle for my mule so I was forced to ride this saddle for over a year in pain until I could find a replacement. I since purchased a "used" Tucker that made a word of difference, and let a friend of mine try the Breakin Wind Saddle on his mule without giving him any details. After a 1 hour ride he called me with the same results, back pain and the saddle leans to the right on his mule. He said he couldn't understand how I could ride in this saddle for a day, let alone a year+! I have called Mike Hamilton many times since and he "will not" return any calls. I even had a neighbor check to see if he was still in the area and hand deliver a note to please call me. He let me know he is in fact still making saddles and living in Bryant Alabama at the same address.! Still no calls returned. I only wanted the saddle fixed so I'm now forced to send it elsewhere to be repaired, at my expense of course. So if you are considering buy a Breakin Wind Saddle from Mike Hamilton think twice. You only get what you pay for from him, YOU WILL GET NO SERVICE after he gets your money, and don't expect him to call you back if you have a problem.
