Beautiful Mahogany Dixieland Saddle--Amish Hand-Crafted
This beautiful mahogany saddle with black accent seat is made of #1 premier cow leather from Wicket & Craig. It has been recently detailed and polished with a generous layer of Skidmore Cream on both sides of the leather. At first glance you think you are looking at a new saddle. The 15" deeply padded seat, with a pencil roll cantle, will forever eliminate sore bottoms. To add further to your comfort, the stirrups are turned in the "right" position to alleviate the twisting pressure on your knees from standard stirrups. It is lightly hand-tooled, no machine stamping.
The hardware is rustproof stainless steel & the underside is covered with premium 1/2" wool felt. It comes with a matching tooled breast strap, crupper and a "gripping" neoprene SMART Cinch in very good condition. Notice the rigging allows for 3/4 or three-point (centerfire rigging), which takes into consideration short-backed or long-backed horses and the adjustment option can prevent the girth from rubbing your horses legs, especially when he's outfitted with a breast strap that continually pulls the girth forward.
This saddle made by skilled Amishmen sells new for $1583. The $783 you save by purchasing this excellent saddle could put new tires on your horse trailer or buy some feed.
I had an accident which (see photo) which tore the seat right next to the pencil-style cantle, which I had repaired with identical matching leather from the saddle maker.
I REALLY like this saddle for it's beauty, craftsmanship and comfort. So why am I selling it? I have decided that the style of riding I do (chasing cattle...I don't rope, endurance, and rough-riding) is best done without the interference of a horn. I came very close to ordering the saddle without a horn. My regret at not doing so, is the only thing that makes this saddle available for sale now.
P.S. This saddle came with two-36" leather billets, which I have never used. I use 1 1/2" heavy duty black nylon billets which are on the saddle now, but I will include the leather billets also.
