wants to quote some stuff in the Reinsman Saddle catalog:
so proud to be partnered with Reinsman. Teaming up with Reinsman
and their product developer, Dale Martin, who have been in the
saddle making and roping business for 25 years. We have developed
a saddle tree that gives the horse an advantage over the stressful
conditions we put him in, while giving the rider balance, comfort,
and the stability needed for accuracy with our rope. My saddles
are at a price point that gives the consumer a quality hand made
saddle at an affordable price. Whether you rope for a living, a
hobby or just enjoy riding, Reinsman saddles will fit your
need." - Tyler Magnus
Martin is the Vice-President of Marketing and Product Development
for Reinsman Equestrian Products. Dale is a PRCA Team Roper, Calf
Roper, and Steer Roper. As a horseman and saddlemaker, Dale has
incorporated 25 years of knowledge in all the X Series products.
Dale Martin and Reinsman are committed to continue bringing you a
quality product that fits a horse and works."
More than a
couple Reinsman executives are riding horsemen. ..."At
Reinsman I feel that there is a tremendous amount of value in
having our management team understand the functions and fit of the
product they make. Being a horseman and an end user is an asset to
the company." - Dale Martin, VP of Sales & Marketing.
That said, each
category of saddle, roper, racer, reiner, etc., has some great
options for you. Tooling patterns, seat colors, seat styles, seat
sizes, and so forth.
There is a
method to the Reinsman numbering system. The first digit denotes a
saddle. The second digit denotes the saddle type, (Roper, Barrel,
cutter, etc.). The 3rd digit denotes the tooling pattern. The 4th
digit denotes the amount of tooling, (1/4, 1/2, 5/8, 7/8, full).
The 5th digit denotes the seat style, ( full, bicycle). The 6th
and 7th digits denote the seat size. The 8th digit denotes the
color of saddle leather. The 9th digit denotes the seat color.
There are some differences in the offerings for each type of
lettering and brands are available if you like them. the
one-piece design is using a more expensive, prime cut of leather
to enable it to be molded to shape without being weak or losing
body over time.
Fit with Dale Martin" - As featured in the April 2008 issue
of "Spin to Win" Rodeo Magazine:
too often, the consumer is more concerned with the outward
appearance of a saddle and ignores the interior of a saddle. The
most important thing when looking to buy a saddle is the
"guts" of a saddle. Often times with a saddle, "You
get what you pay for". Your saddle is not one of the places
you want to cut corners. A well made saddle with a strong tree
that fits your horse is a good investment and will last many years
to come. You are better off buying a used saddle that fits than
buying a new saddle that does not. A lot of manufacturers claim
claim to build saddles to fit the horse and rider. Sadly, our
horses can't tell us what feels good, and what hurts or hinders
them. Thus, we have to be intuitive enough to read between the
lines and "listen" to them. Therefore, the best
"listeners" in our industry are the saddle makers with
experience. Look for the saddle maker who has spent just as much
time in the saddle as making them.
makers will stand behind the fit and strength of their saddles.
They are not looking for a one time sale. At Reinsman, we offer a
10 year warantee on our saddle tree and guarantee the
fit. - Dale Martin, Vice
President of Manufacturing, Sales and Marketing.
The picture (left) is an example of a well fitting saddle.
As you can see, neither the front nor rear cinch are
connected. When Dale gets on the horse, the saddle does not
move without the cinches tied.
Would you like to get a new
saddle that feels like it is used? We will heavy oil any saddle
for you. We prefer to use Lexol. Lexol will darken less than any
other conditioner. It is PH-Balanced for the leather used in your
saddle. We have been using Lexol on our personal saddles for over
30 years. Add $120.00 for about three liters of Lexol and some
several hours of application. Lexol is best applied in many thin
layers. To darken slightly, we will add extra virgin olive oil. To
darken more, we will blend in some pure neatsfoot. The choice is
yours! Your saddle will then come out of the box ready to ride in
Remember that a breast
collar is a great addition to your saddle purchase. For a small
investment, you can add an emergency measure that could
prevent a saddle twisting under your horse, should a girth loosen without
your knowledge. (Dale's horse is standing still, not
Tooling patterns protect the
leather against abrasives. Tooling will "pack" the
leather for durability and strength. Tooling can hide small
"range" scars that are inherent to the leather before it
is formed into a saddle part. Tooling adds depth and beauty to the
leather. Tooling will help prevent corners from rolling. Tooling
is just a little more effort to clean than a plain saddle. You can
choose from several tooling patterns with each category of saddle.
The more elaborate the tooling design, the more
value, the more time involved in production, and the more your
investment will grow over time.
Have you ever
had the experience of getting a new saddle to find the stirrups
won't take up enough to fit, or let out enough to fit? No
more...We like to get your real inseam, (and other measurements,
like we were making your chaps), then assure the saddle will fit
when it arrives. Hey, by the time we get through spoiling you,
you'll always want to buy your saddles and tack from us!
We strive to keep some of
the basics in stock. They can be to you in a week or less. But, there is nothing like having a saddle
semi-custom made for your horse and your body. Allow about 2 to 4
weeks for a tree to be made, if necessary. Then the saddler needs about 4 to 8 weeks to
make your saddle. Leather is cut, wet, steamed, dried, fitted and
pulled. It cannot be rolled off a bolt and processed like fabrics.
This does take time to do right. Allow another 3 days to a week for UPS
delivery. Overseas orders will usually go through UPS, or Airborne express, (depending on your best rate or most
security). Any more time is because the saddler is catching up on
previous saddles, or waiting on parts, or needs to take one night
off for his wedding anniversary.
Saddle makers are as excited
about making your saddles as you are about riding! They would
rather get it right, than rush it. We have chosen our saddle
making partners because of their consistency in quality of product. Cultured Cowboy knows that
most of our customers will be riding for many years to come. A
short wait for a really good saddle is worth your "wait"
With the experience of
thousands of saddles made for thousands of horse people, Cultured
Cowboy looks forward to helping you with your needs. Tired legs,
hurting knees, lower back pains, need grip, need freedom, need
speed, need to impress your friends, need to impress your equine,
need help, need a hug? Give us a call.
