Category: Trail Saddles
Purchase: Purchased from Black Horse Leatherworks & Saddlery (C. E. Gessell, owner) in Monroe, WA for US$4,000.00. Needed a custom tree and saddle built to fit a short, wide backed horse.
Likes: Came and measured horse for handmade tree. Fit tree to horse. Built attractive, lightweight western saddle.
Dislikes: Defective (flankey/wrinkled) leather on left seat jockey, back cinch too short. Black Horse Leatherworks & Saddlery (C. E. Gessell) will not honor the warranty, and has refused to accepted the saddle back for repair and/or partial refund.
Quality: Construction okay, except as faults described. Expected higher quality of leather and workmanship for cost paid.
Summary: In hindsight, should have dealt with a master saddlemaker.
Usefulness Rating: 2.9 out of 5.
