This isn't just any saddle.
BigHorn decided to distinguish themselves from all other
nylon/leather combination saddle makers. They sat down in a board
meeting and asked, "How can we make a better, lightweight saddle,
that will allow the stirrups to turn easy, for arthritis; something
that any normal lady, or any person over 60, or a person under12, can
lift." They decided to replace the skirts, stirrup leathers, and fenders with
Cordura© nylon. It costs like leather. It is as strong as
But because Cordura© can be cut and sewn like in a
garment shop, the cost savings come in the labor time making these
parts. The bindings are specially turned from the same material,
so you will not have edges falling loose.
Leather, not synthetic,
is next to your body's saddle block area. This lets your crotch breathe. No excessive
sweating like there is with naugahide seats. The best stainless
steel hardware is used, rather than the cheapest plated pot metal.
No cheap Velcro imitation expected to hold
your stirrups on. No excessive stretching in spring or summer sunshine. No
tearing or cracking in the cold weather from cheap vinyl pommel
covers, or seats. No conchos, nails or screws breaking loose out
of an inferior tree. (I hate to bash other makers, but these
saddles are quality, and some of you have heard horror stories
about other brands.)
My oldest children began,
and rode these Big Horn saddles until they were older teens. We still use
them today, 25 years later. These Barrel Racing saddles allow
lots of free movement in the stirrups. The seat and cantle are
designed for your security. The light weight is always a favorite
with gymkhana. And when it's time to ride shorter trails, we just add
strings and bags!
If you want your saddles to
last this well, ask us about preconditioning and best continuous
conditioning & care, before we ship to you. Cool thing is:
just a few little differences between dealers will make a huge
difference in your long term riding enjoyment.

favorite is the BigHorn felt lined, (nose & crown) halter.
What this means to you is that of all the halters we have used for
almost 50 years, these seem to be best for leaving on the horse during
longer periods of time. The nylon doesn't get hard like polypropylene
halters. The felt allows this halter to be more comfy in most
weather conditions. Padded nose & crown dry back fast
without problems. This halter uses rated materials so that it
should hold together for most pulls, but will break, or snap
straighten with excessive effort that would have hurt your horse
anyway. Easily repairable. Comes with a Warranty. Snaps are easily replaced.

hand awl can be done. OR, the halter can be returned to us or to
