we have a 20 inch seat with that comfy NASA foam
inserted, so that it contours to your
buttocks. Just 10 minutes & it settles in to your
body shape! Especially great if you ever had lower back issues or a
coccyx bone problem. Done in an extended bicycle seat
for still closer contact. This was fitted with a
little lift for rider's legs to feel closer together.
Perforated top grain seat allows all the breathe ability
you can get.
rigging is set for center fire options so that you can
best fit a few horses, adjusting the girth position
for each horse perfectly!
This makes it easy to
find that sweet spot your horse likes on his back, and
move the girth off his elbows too. You can see from
the pics that the rings are done "roper"
styled with drop rigging. Rear ring still allows you
to tie your extra long girth tie strap through both
front and rear to achieve the center fire advantage,
even with a flank attached! Thanks to BigHorn for
those nylon girth straps - 90 inches!

without unnecessary movement, yet still has thousands
of air pockets for best protection of the horse back.

worked with the customer to have an easy to care,
attractive riding saddle. The inseams were custom
fitted through jockey and stirrup customization. The
teardrop type trail fenders allow easy turning when
shorter inseams are in effect. Skirts were cut in a

front drop rig allows both strength and closeness to
your horse for better signaling. Although I tied the
girth straps to the front rig, you could as easily tie

flex where you need it and proper rigidity to hold it
in place too. The wider bars of a roper allow more
distribution or weight so there is no pinching on
fewer vertebra of the horse spine. The hide covered
tree allows flexibility not found in less expensive
fiberglass covered trees. Shell border will keep the
edges from rolling upward, and makes cleaning an ease.
Though the horn change prohibits roping, the rest of
the saddle is strong enough for whatever you might

conditioned, stirrups turned but not tied, so the
rider can easily make adjustments as she rides longer
trails. ( Yer legs won't get as tired if you're
letting them shift now & again. WE finish with a
nice protective saddle lac to further protect and to
better blend the coloration. YEp, Black, but we
could make it in any color.
we build yours, you too can give us your true inseam measurements and we can have the

tooling enhances the simplicity of the flowing
design of those skirts. Putting a plate rig on a
drop prevents damage to a skirt that could
happen as strain is placed on your equipment.

roper, this one certainly is
made for comfort for your horse and long rides

dees compliment the rest of stainless
