For Sale on eBay
Manufacturer: Porter Saddles
Category: Roping Saddles
Purchase: If you are considering purchasing a "Porter" saddle from eBay, please do your homework before you bid. The saddles being sold under this name are made in India and you should bid accordingly. Look up Porter Saddle Truth on the internet and you'll find a detailed accounting of this ongoing scam.
Likes: I have posted previously on this site about one seller, but the same people are operating under several names to further deceive buyers. The previous review I posted pointed out a mispelling on the saddle labeling, which has since been corrected and now reads Porter, not Portor. My only stake in this is I grew up in Phoenix and I value the integrity of classic brands as well as hate liars and copyright violators.
Dislikes: Save your money for a real saddle made by people who live in the US and ride horses. These may LOOK like a decent saddle but they are made with NO knowledge or care about fit or construction. You will hurt your horse and possibly be injured by this fake junk.
Quality: You'll be getting nasty Indian made leather and who knows what else. Indian leather is weak due to the tanning processes used there. The stitching may look nice but what you can't see can hurt you.
Summary: Just do your homework and know these are not the real deal. If you want a decorative saddle for your office, this might be a good buy. But please don't put one of these on a horse and ride in it.
