18 Lb. Western Saddles for Trail, Hunting & Pleasure
These lightweight western saddles are tough and durable for all your riding needs and are. We use a high quality, durable cordura material for the fenders and skirts of these saddles. This reduces weight while still allowing you to have a very functional, tough saddle. The jockeys, pommel, cantle and seat are all leather. The fender straps are also lined with leather for reinforcement. There are lots of options available on these saddles. We can add rigging, britchen and crupper rings, upgrade the lining, add ties, tooling, put different stirrups on and so on. We can even add 3-way rigging on the front. Please call or email to order options not listed on the individual product pages.
Cordura vs. all leather, what are the advantages?
1. Lightweight! 18 lbs. vs. 30+ lbs. for most all leather saddles.
2. Easy to clean, cordura can be washed off with soap and water.
3. Easy on the legs and knees, cordura is very flexible so there's virtually no resistance against your knees and ankles.
4. You can still have all of the rigging and equipment on a cordura saddle that you can on an all leather saddle.
