Cultured Cowboy was selected by an experienced saddler
who just needed more reach for his saddle business. His expertise
is putting great styling, modern looks and function, on affordable
saddles. We've struck
a deal to offer you a small selection of horse, youth and pony
saddles, made just for you. Add to that a few used saddles
& discounted close outs.

overview of some of the lower priced options you can choose through Cultured
investment Saddles are an opening opportunity for many horse people.
price only is the consideration, many of us, (me too in my earlier
days), have been stung by saddles
that ended up being a piece of junk. - Pressed paper skirt liners,
or skirts made of so many layers of splits, that fall apart when
they get too wet, cheap belly leather, smelly urine tanned
leather, stretchy water buffalo leather, plated hardware that
corrodes in a couple months, hard polypropylene that feels like it
could cut your horse in places it has no business, cheap
"hook & loop" substituted for a leather stirrup hobble strap, seat foams that
deteriorate to yellow dust within a couple years, foam rubber -
sweat absorbing sweat swelling - skirt rotting substitute as a padded lining next to the horse,
fleece that will flatten with any pressure, get slick as glass
with a little moisture, bunch up
& probably sore your horse.
How about these "new
CHEAP saddles" with tree shells filled with sand? (often
called "core trees") How about saddle dealers
whose lowest price is by only buying defective trees, (
crooked bars, offset angles, split wood, plastics with too many
air bubbles), I could go on forever
in all the ways a maker can cheap-make a saddle.
now, a customer is in the store, familiar with the $300.00 -
$400.00 saddles sold at "horse auctions". Even he was
grinning at how gullible people are. Sand filled trees. Another
dealer told me about that sand leaking out of the tree all over
his store, before ever being riden! Stretchy
belly leathers at stress points will get you hurt.
Cowboy screens makers, screens products, actually tears stuff
apart to see what's really inside, so you get your best values. We
want it right the first time!!! Shipping back & forth
cost too much! - Which is why - with many of these saddles under
$600.00, you have a maker's warrantee, that they guarantee to fix
if defective, yet you have to ship back to factories in Pakistan, or India. -
Then you find the shipping, which you pay is more than the
initial saddle purchase. WHICH IS WHY so many are so cheap priced
on E-Bay, & other such sites. People are getting rid of
I'm not bashing India. Actually, my finest bestest English bridles
come from "Bobby's English Tack". Great craftsmanship
with European leathers. And many of the saddles here will also be
crafted where labor is considerably less than USA, of European
is, just because you're just starting out, doesn't
mean you want to get stuck with buying several saddles before you
get a good one. EBAY and especially other auctions are buyer beware, and are
a favorite place for people working out of their bedrooms to drop
you something that you have to turn around and EBAY back.
Shipping back and forth a few times will
discourage you, even more than eat your budget up. With Cultured
Cowboy, you're never "stuck" with a saddle. We exchange and refund, within reason!
Better - we ask enough questions about you and your horse and your
riding, that we get it right before we ship! So, now we've
gotten all that warning stuff out of the way, enjoy these
often exchange original plated under-skirting screws with the best
stainless steel, We look carefully to be sure girth attachments
are correct. Yes, the skirt fleece is thinner than some of
our other products, but better than that $1.75 per yard stuff (a
yard length in a 72 inch fabric is enough to fleece 2 saddles). We
do this to insure the saddle will not tear up your good saddle
pads! Invest in a better quality pad with your saddle and
your pleasure riding will continue to be a pleasure for years to
J Saddles have styling formed after studying the most popular
saddles of major makers, (legal knockoffs). They look much like
Name Brands that are 2X to 2.5X these prices. Handcrafted in areas
where saddler salaries are low, but at the top of their local
availability. European tanned, and Argentine type leathers are used,
rather than less desirable hides. We
feel this western saddle line will expand. I'll invite you to contact us with ideas,
questions, or suggestions.
trail type pleasure & barrel racers are
so popular in arena sports and for trail riding, we have begun
with them. Yes - 5 year warrantees on the trees. The tooling is
outstanding! seats are acceptably comfortable.
Would you like to get a new
saddle that feels like it is used? We'll heavy oil any saddle
for you. We prefer to use 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
40 years. Add $120.00 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
darken more, we can blend in some pure neatsfoot. 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!
Remember that a breast
collar is a great addition to your saddle purchase. And we have
every sort of girth too. Adding a couple brushes, halter, a pad,
and such into your saddle box will cost you no extra shipping.
(Dim Weights). Saddle boxes are 28 x 20 x 20 usually.
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.
Use an old toothbrush to get into the crevices!
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
over 150 saddles in stock. The stock saddles 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. Usually your saddle
can be delivered within 2 to 12 weeks if not in our stock. (We
use the ready made inventory warehouses of saddle makers.) 12
weeks if a tree need to be made to then make the saddle. Leather is cut, wet, dried, fitted and
pulled. It cannot be rolled off a bolt and processed like fabrics.
This does take time to do right.
Saddle makers are as excited
about making your saddles as you are about riding! We've chosen our Internet
providers because of their consistency in quality of product. Cultured Cowboy knows that
most of our customers want value for their hard earned money. A
short wait for a really good saddle is worth your "wait"
