Watch This!

I found this over on http://www.western-saddle-guide.com/blog/. It is a great site with tons of information on one of my favorite things- Western Saddles! Plus they scour the Net and list the Deal of the Day- resonably priced saddles you can find and buy on the web- if you dare. I personally have bought and sold about ten saddles on the internet and I have been pleased with all of the sales and the purchases. If you are informed and know what you are doing you can get some great buys- especially now!
I'm in the process of planning for my very own custom build saddle. I know what style of saddle I want, and I have a saddler picked to do the work, but I just have to fine tune the details! It's a labor of love- truely. I just fig'ger that since I've spent over half of my life in a saddle- I deserve one that will fit my aging butt! And I don't need one dripping with silver, I want one that will suit my style ~ Vaquero-ish ~ something unique! (unique up on 'em!)
Watch the video- it's brilliant!

The video is terrific - thanks for the link. It neatly sums up why custom saddles are worth the money without saying a word.

Very cool! I have my grandma's saddle, made in Miles City MT, and my brother has my grandpa's saddle, a Hamley made in Pendleton.

Now tell me, what has kept me from visiting this blog in the past???

I love that bucking horse!

I'm claiming your quote on courage and insanity :)

And I was just visiting that saddle blog this morning for the first time!

Looking forward to hearing more about your custom saddle in the works. Wish I could afford one to make a saddle that fits my funky backed gelding. Saddle fitting is such a chore!

Howdy! A good-fitting saddle is essential for my aging butt too, especially since I rarely get in one anymore!
Hey! Your picture on the sidebar...Benecia..
I LOVE LOVE LOVE Benecia! Is that where you are?? My folks lived there for about 18 years before retiring and coming back to WA. I loved visiting there!!! Mom and I used to do a lot of walking there!

Hey, it's Sara from the old days. On a work trip, and using your blog to help pass the time. Went to the North Pole today, but Santa was gone. I am so thankful it warmed up and was only -30 when I landed this am.
Neat video, and I am anxious to see your saddle.

Speaking of saddles, we need one for our HUGE stallion Clydesdale. It is tough to fit him!
