constitutes a trail saddle?
Today, there's a huge return to enjoying horses.

trail saddle has to be tough, but not on your butt! Not on your
horse! Trails place unique pressures on your horse's back,
shoulders, girth, and legs. A lot more movement needs to be
accounted for in the design of the saddle. - Lightweight does not
mean better! Reasonable weights have been met by proper design

Would you like to get a new
saddle that feels like it's used? We'll heavy oil any saddle
for you. We prefer to begin with Lexol Conditioner. Lexol will darken less than
other conditioners. It's PH-Balanced for the leather used in your
saddle. We've been using lanolin based Lexol on our personal saddles for over
45 years. Add $125.00 for applying about three liters of Lexol
several hours of application on saddles. Lexol is best applied in many thin
layers. To darken slightly, and finish the process with a
delightful finish, we'll hand rub extra virgin olive
oil till that white looking lanolin is forced back into the
leather. The choice is
yours! If you choose this option, your saddle will then come out of the box ready to ride in
comfort! No sore knees nor ankles! (Any sanded areas will become
darker as they absorb these natural oils.)
