Manufacturer: Pish Saddlery
Model: Wade Saddle
Category: Roping Saddles
Purchase: I ordered this saddle through Horsemans' Feed and Supply in Albuquerque and was able to customize every detail directly with the maker; they willingly worked with my treemaker, Bowden, in Vinton,Tx. Prices are extremely competitive with other custom ranch saddle makers! Pish does sell "off the rack" which are just as nice!
Likes: This saddle has exceeded my expectations; Wickett and Craig leather, hand tooling, custom length on the fenders,etc. My horse is very wide, full quarter horse bars (even on a Bob's Custom) were too narrow. The combination of a Bowden custom tree and the fantastic hard seat on this Pish Wade makes it comfortable for both of us. At 48 pounds, I can still swing this up on a 16.1 horse with no problem. This is an "old school classy" saddle.
Dislikes: I can't fault it and I'm really particular...
Quality: Heavy, Wickett and Craig leather, immaculate, even stitching,elegant and artful tooling (mine is all corner, border tooled),uniform, rich "light oil antique" color. Comfortable, balanced hard seat. This is a work worthy example of cowboy art.
Summary: Amazing value and quality; I have seen saddles for 3 times the price that were not as nice. Fantastic customer service!
