Manufacturer: Elite Saddlery (formerly Silver Mesa)
Model: Reining/Show Saddle
Category: Reining Saddles

Purchase: For years I have wanted a Silver Mesa Saddle but could not afford one. Then Denney Sergeants closed and my hopes of having one went out the window unless I could find a used one but even so, they also pricey. Then a little saddle shop opened up in Tioga, TX on Hwy 377 not far from where Sergeants was. It is called Elite Saddlery and they are making saddles starting from about $1100/1200 and up to the price and kind used by the top pros. The owner is the man who used to be the head saddle maker of the Silver Mesas for many years and his son, Raimundo Blanco Sr and Jr . They gave me a private treaty deal on a nice saddle, much lower than the $2500 base price quoted for that type of saddle. The saddle is built on a reining tree but I will be using it for local showing. It is light oil color with just a few conchos for decoration. But it looks like a million dollars!

Likes: The eye appeal that goes with the former Silver Mesa name is now found in the Elite Saddles. I was pleased with the customer service, even going so far as to measure my leg for the correct saddle stirrup length. They use a yellow pine tree with fiberglass covering that comes with a lifetime guarantee. And the saddle is so pretty with just the tooling (combination basket weave with snake border.) They let me choose the conchos.

Dislikes: This part will be left blank as there are no dislikes.

Quality: That great Silver Mesa style and construction along with top quality leather are evident in my new saddle. The seat is so comfortable and even though new, the saddle does not squeak. They use a yellow pine tree with fiberglass covering that comes with a lifetime guarantee. Elite Saddlery is dedicated to giving great customer service and satisfaction.

Summary: If you are looking for a good saddle at a fair price I highly recommend Elite Saddlery. They have a website with contact numbers and email. They do saddle repair and also make headstalls, show halters, breast collars as well as other things with leather such as belts and cell phone holders.
