Hereford
Western 15"
Show Saddles



Manufacturer: Hereford
Model: Western 15"
Category: Show Saddles

Purchase: This saddle was at the Minnesota Horse Expo at the Chubb Lake Feeds vendor booth. I paid $500.00. I walked by the booth and sat in the saddle about 10 times that day. It wasn't until I walked by and saw someone else sitting in "my" saddle that I whipped out the checkbook and carried the thing a mile to my car. I had ridden in my dad's Hereford saddle for years and I knew they made a very good product. In fact, they had an exact duplicate of my dad's saddle in the booth for sale. That's what originally drew me in. But then I saw the new one and it was game over. No old style used one for me.

Likes: So far, this has been a great saddle and I look forward to many more good years with it. In fact, I told my hubby if I die, he is to place the saddle over my casket at my funeral instead of a bouquet. I've used it on several horses and it has fit every one well with the exception of one mare with very round withers and an upright neck. I've customized the saddle by adding silver plates and silver stirrups and it holds it's own in the show ring while still being an incredibly comfortable trail saddle. I've logged hundreds of hours in this saddle and when I clean it up, it still looks brand new.

Dislikes: Well, it is the old style "dark oil" finish. But hey, when I bought it, that's what all the folks were showing in. Now I just claim I'm going retro.

Quality: Honestly, after 15 years and hundreds of hours of riding, this thing still looks new when cleaned. Great quality. Of course, I couldn't dream of replacing this saddle for what I paid for it new with something of equal quality....they just aren't that inexpensive anymore.

Summary: If you can ever find yourself a used Hereford for sale, it's definitely worth your time to try it out.
