Category: Roping Saddles
Purchase: I discovered this saddle manufacturer online at Ebay. The quality and style of their saddles caught my eye and then the affordable prices were mind blowing. After doing a lot of research on Riders Choice,(some of which came from visiting Horse Tack Review),I took the step of contacting Riders Choice, told them what I wanted in a custom made saddle and they got back to me with a quote. This saddle was built well within the time limit allocated and promptly shipped to me in Australia without mishap.
Likes: I love it. I paid $900.00US (shipping inclusive to Australia). The materials used are of the highest quality and will last a lifetime. The master saddler who created it really made this saddle strong a work of art.
Dislikes: Nothing! This saddle is perfect with not a stitch out of place.
Quality: 16" padded suede with a stitched pattern. Natural tanned Herman Oak leather. Polymer tree to keep within my weight criteria. 4" high cantle with a leather cheyenne roll. FQH 7" gullet. In skirt double stainless rigging. Rear slit with re enforced stitching with back cinch. Thick stirrup leathers with stainless blevin buckles. Leather covered oxbow stirrups. Double square skirt. Full hand tooled herringbone border. Weight of 36lb. 3" wrapped horn. 6 strings through silver conchos. 1 stainless crupper dee. 2 stainless breastcollar dees. This saddle is "Quality-Quality-Quality"!
Summary: This saddle is everything I asked for and a true custom/one of a kind saddle. It is a superbly made Lady work/roper saddle that can't be faulted. After experiencing the no trouble transaction of purchasing a custom made saddle online I have the utmost respect for the master builder of this saddle and have no hesitation in recommending Riders Choice to anyone with quality and affordability in mind.
