Purchase: Mike Hamilton. Dickson Mule Sale, Dickson Tn. That is where I first met mike. He had three of four saddles for sale there. I liked the quality and craftsmanship of his handmade saddles. Pricing ranged $600.00 to $800.00 Home based out of Bryant, Alabama I needed a roping saddle sturdy enough for a working horse and mule farm. This saddle needed to be comfortable for long trail rides as well as strong enough to pull a full grown mule along. My primary work horses and mules were out of Spotted Saddle Stock. This is a sport breed that is shorter backed than most other breeds. Typical roping saddles are BIG and LONG. These saddles caused rubbing and discomfort in the hip area for my working stock. Mike built me a saddle that surpassed all my requirements. In just three months he hand built a remarkable saddle. Price $750.00
Likes: Brushed suede seat so I would not slip out of the seat when the riding got rough. Roomy 16" seat so I could take a rider along. HUGE roping horn. I have been able to take up to three stubborn colts up and down the trails without worry of breakage. All of the rigging is huge rust resistant hardware. Tough, sturdy, and yet to have a so much as a stitch come undone.
Quality: Brushed suede seat Roomy 16" seat HUGE roping horn, on an unbreakable tree. All of the rigging is huge rust resistant hardware. Tough, sturdy, thick first quality leather.
Summary: Mike came through for me. He built me a great saddle that will be around long after my riding days are through. This saddle fits every animal I ride from green colts to working stock. It is suited to the high withers and delicate features of my walking mules to the wide load quarter stock. Four of my friends bought saddles from him and they all enjoy similar stories. Bravo !
