Category: Barrel Saddles
Purchase: I have wanted a custom made saddle for years, but could never really afford it. I knew the saddle that I wanted had to be unique, customizable to suite me, and foremost made in the USA. I looked far and wide and ended up settling on a saddle made by the SMM Saddle co. I had heard by word of mouth good things, and for $1600.00 I could not beat the price. Well last month my Dream finally came true when I received by SMM Saddle co Barrel saddle in the mail, and all I can say is WOW!
Likes: This saddle is Perfect! It is everything I wanted and more. The seat and stirrups and done in authentic Cogniac Crocodile and there are Crocodile cutouts in the skirt. The conchos used are just gorgeous and far better then anything you can order from Tandy's. Aside from just being jaw dropping gorgeous, the quality and workmanship put into the saddle is just amazing. Nothing about this saddle was over looked or skimped on and it fits my QH like a glove!
Dislikes: I wish there was more Croc on it! I love the Croc skin! Seriously though the only problem I did have was the bottom was not wool, but that is actually my fault. I did not realize that I had to order it with a wool Underside for an additional $80.00.
Quality: As i said above it is well made in every aspect. The leather is very good quality and smells great. My Billy Cook is a well made saddle that I love, but SMM Saddle co takes that quality to the next level.
Summary: If you want a custom built saddle made in the USA for under $2000.00 then the SMM Saddle Co may be your best bet. They have a great turn around time (6 weeks for my Saddle), and the saddle is built to last a lifetime! My friend at this time is having a Roper made with a Stingray seat right now by them. I'll make sure she post a review when she receives it next month.
